Catalogue Number: 11W038
Reference: CHSA 5257
Format: SACD hybrid
Description: Delibes’s talent for lyrical melody and musical expression of a mood or feeling elevates all three of these scores above their contemporaries and he was at the forefront of creating orchestral suites from his ballet music, which were envisaged to be performed without staging or dancers. On this well-filled (82:55) album Neeme Järvi adds several additional movements to expand upon the suites which appeared in Delibes’s lifetime. Royal Scottish National Orchestra; Neeme Järvi.
