Notes and Editorial Reviews

Speaking of Milhaud reminds me of what is surely the most enterprising disc in DG's latest batch of The Originals (most of which has already appeared on CD, often at less than full price). Igor Markevitch conducts the Lamoureux Orchestra in a programme that includes Honegger's Fifth Symphony (Di Ire re), Roussel's Second Bacchus et Ariane Suite and Milhaud's musical tragedy after Aeschylus's Les Choéphores - an extraordinarily fine performance and so much better than the rather slipshod Bernstein version that Sony recently put out as part of their Masterworks Heritage series.

-- Robert Cowan, Gramophone [4/1997]
