Notes and Editorial Reviews

Distinctively French, yet cosmopolitan in his personal and artistic horizons, Darius Milhaud (1892-1974) was adventurous, prominent, and prolific. A pupil of Dukas and d'Indy, he became a member of Les Six and a distinguished teacher in the United States and France. His students in the US included jazz musician Dave Brubeck and songwriter Burt Bacharach.

This 10-CD anthology offers a voyage of discovery around his vast and scintillating output of orchestral, instrumental and vocal music; performed by Milhaud himself, a peerless array of French musicians, and such figures as Bernstein, Rostropovich, Fischer-Dieskau, and Celibidache.
