Description: "Parisian Symphony" meaning, of course, symphonies written in or for performance in Paris: hence the Haydn (although not the Beethoven which is here presumably because he was popular in that city). The Gossec symphonies and Sabinus were originally released in 2002 and 2008, the Gossec Symphonie concertante, the Pieltain, Gresnick and the Grétry flute concerto in 2005. The notes seem to indicate that the Hérold symphony and the arias with Jennifer Borghi are New to CD. Recordings from 2002-2014; 25 pages of English notes. 7 CDs for the price of 2. Les Agrémens; Guy van Waas.
