Notes and Editorial Reviews

It seems that every Chabrier collection differs slightly in one or two details, and this excellent offering is no exception. The Bourrée fantasque, which wasn't orchestrated by Chabrier in any case, is omitted, but in exchange we get an extremely rare and very beautiful Lamento for English horn and orchestra. Conductor Hervé Niquet and his Monte Carlo orchestra know this music well and play it with real affection, style, and sparkle. Right from the opening bars of España, you can tell that this is going to be a delightful recording: perfect tempo, excellent orchestral balances (the all-important harp clearly audible yet not artificially close), and the kind of rhythmic swagger that spells confidence without a hint of bombast. Next to Niquet Read more and Co., Gardiner's Vienna recording for Deutsche Grammophon, highly praised in some quarters, sounds tight-fisted and grim. Chabrier is a much more important composer than many people realize. Mahler, who was a big fan, called España "the origin of modern music." This inexpensive disc offers a perfect opportunity to discover what he meant.
