Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This Pelléas et Mélisande Suite, based on Erich Leinsdorf's arrangement, consists primarily of the opera's preludes and orchestral interludes. Abbado includes additional passages containing the opera's main thematic elements. It's mostly very quiet music (except for the dramatic Act 4 interlude) and in this setting sounds a lot like Debussy's Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian. As in his justly lauded 1992 DG recording of the complete opera, Abbado is highly attuned to the delicate shadings and intricate timbres of this brilliant score..."
