Notes and Editorial Reviews

Montreal Symphony Orchestra/Charles Dutoit. London 421 527-2 [with shorter works by Bizet, Chabrier, Ibert, Saint-Saëns, Satie, and Thomas] (recorded 1987).

Dutoit gives an atmospheric account of the Dukas scherzo, as part of a compilation that includes Bizet’s Jeux d’enfants and Ibert’s witty Divertissement, one of the best groupings of French orchestral favorites ever to enter the catalog. The sound is glorious and the Montrealers give every piece its due. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection.
