Speakers Corner


Reissued Decca SXL from Speakers Corner. The Orchestre de la Suisse Romande conducted by Ernest Ansermet performs Georges Bizet's Carmen Suite, L'Arl├ęsienne Suite. The "Carmen Suite" was assembled after Bizet's death and brought the operatic masterpiece into the concert hall. With every bar it becomes obvious that this suite is not so much a series of excerpts but rather the true substance of its creator's musical ideas. All that remained of the five-act play "L'Arl├ęsienne" after its unsuccessful premiere was Bizet's incidental music, which he himself orchestrated lavishly and premiered with success. Similar to "Carmen", popular melodies are treated with the composer's own unique style to make them ageless, and Ernest Ansermet and his orchestra stages them delightfully for all eternity. Recording: April and May 1958 at Victoria Hall, Geneva (Switzerland), by Roy Wallace

Original Master Re-issues on 180 gram vinyl.
