Notes & Reviews:

Though most are intimately familiar with Georges Bizet's operatic work, notably the universally beloved Carmen, much of the composer's fine orchestral music has been overlooked by history. This collection surveys his complete body of orchestral works, taking in symphony, suite, prelude, and overture. Enrique Bátiz, leading the renowned Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Orquestra Filarmonica de Mexico, delivers thrilling performances and makes this an indispensable and pleasurable listen.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
On the whole, Carmen is undeniably exciting and very well played. But any time you get two Carmen suites, that's a sure sign half of it is going to be arrangements of vocal solos and that may not be to some purists' tastes. Even Paray, who made a point of avoiding vocal excerpts, finally relented and included the 'Danse Boheme' on one of his last recordings. Here the flutes seem innocent enough, but Batiz - unlike Paray - makes the mistake of starting out so briskly he has nowhere to go; moreover the Mexican trumpeter for all his hearty bravado is a mite quavery in the 'Toreador's Song', and the concertmaster sounds even more strained in the 'Nocturne'. I like everything about opera except the singing (!) so I have no trouble with hearing the 'Seguedille' played on the oboe.
