Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
Fanfare (5-6/98, p.110) - "...["Jeux"] is all it should be: mysterious, sardonic, sexy, and sultry, and de Sabata underlines the whole with a palpable sense of menace. "La Mer" and the Nocturnes are also very atmospheric....The digital remastering is very good. A wonderful reissue."
