Notes and Editorial Reviews

The 1902 Paris Opera première of Pelléas et Mélisande opened up new horizons to the great French conductor Désiré-Èmile Inghelbrecht, and musical theatre became his great interest. Inghelbrecht was appointed musical director of first the Théâtre des Arts, then the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, the Opéra-Comique and later the Orchestre National de la Radiodiffusion Française. Perhaps the fact that Inghelbrecht's mother was English is the reason he was so fond of Mary Garden's Mélisande, and why one can find in Suzanne Danco's performance on this recording something of the poetry and the spirit that characterized Garden's unfailing charm.
