Notes and Editorial Reviews

It is something of a revelation to hear the complete score [of L'Arlesienne], not only for the inclusion of all the music but also to hear the original arrangements. Bizet was limited to 26 musicians. The textures are very clean, with a transparency that reveals a wealth of imaginative and expressive details. Bizet captures moods and emotions in the most economical way. Michel Plasson and the Orchestre du Capitole de Toulouse invite and encourage us to stop what we’re doing and listen to this wonderful score and savor the details.

-- David L. Kirk, FANFARE [reviewing EMI 55671]
