Notes & Reviews:

The mystery of Egypt in classical music. An exotic collection of classical music which evokes the mysterious world of classical Egypt. These major works bring a far-off world to life in a vibrant and exciting way. Verdi, Debussy, Saint-S+ñens and others in some of their most colourful and imaginative compositions.
