Notes & Reviews:

George Bizet's first important work, the Symphony in C was penned when the composer was a mere seventeen years of age! Written while Bizet was studying under Charles Gounod, it was not performed until sixty years after Bizet's death, at which time it was instantly regarded as a masterpiece. On the other hand Carmen, which was in its initial run at the time of Bizet's death, was quickly a smash success and remains today as one of the most popular operas. 'Jeux d'Enfants' is perhaps his finest piano work. Find this gem of a symphony along with the orchestral suites of Carmen and Jeux d'Enfants on this exciting disc. Remarkable performances all, crisply recorded.

Gramophone
Bizet's enchanting Symphony, written when the composer was 17, is a work of precocious skill and great charm... The RPO woodwind soloists play well, of course (in) the brightly colored Carmen... Jeux d'enfants makes a good encore, again well played.

Pizzicato
Joeres doesn't just let his musicians play, he makes them shape each phrase with loving care.
