Notes & Reviews:

"On this disc, Abbado and the LSO sound light, witty, warm, colorful and deep beneath the skin of the music, making the L'Arlesienne Suites ring all the changes from its swaggering March to its sultry Minuet and from its ardent Pastorale to its tragic Farandole, and the Carmen Suite sing, stamp, soar and sizzle like Dorothy Dandridge in a flowing red skirt. Here, DG's late stereo sound is crisp, clean, deep and vibrant. Here, in short, is a soupcon of Bizet for all ages, sexes and tastes that only the hardest of critical hearts could not embrace with open arms." -All Music
