Notes & Reviews:

Berlioz's 'Les nuits d'ete', set to the impassioned love poems of Theophile Gautier, was the first ever French song cycle and shows the composer at the pinnacle of his powers of orchestration. Chausson's luxuriantly orchestrated 'Poeme de l'amour et de la mer' is set to texts by Maurice Bouchor, on the transient nature of love. 'La Peri', a dance poem based on the old Persian legend of King Isender, is one of Dukas' finest orchestral achievements.
