About the Works
This recording represents a selection of French orchestral music which includes essentially, the classics of the repertoire. The oldest – Georges Bizet – was born in 1838, and the youngest – Maurice Ravel – in 1875. These pieces share a common factor in that they are all connected with dance, whether they are suites from large ballets, such as the works from Roussel and Fauré, or whether the various dance forms provided the patterns for the compositions or are quoted, as with Bizet, Debussy and Ravel. This programme gives a very fine impression of the development of Impressionism in French music, as well as of the specific use of solo instruments. In the present recording, these are principally the violin, the flute and the horn.
