Product Notes

A holiday in the south of France, and what better guide than Thomas Beecham? Sir Thomas loved French ballets and the music of Bizet, and it shows in this recording. One finds no tour de force of ensemble here, and the intonation is at times a bit piquant, but the spirit is exactly right--buoyant, sunny and energetic, never driven or ponderous. The accounts are perfectly proportioned, and suffused throughout with a radiant lyricism. The dates of the recordings are not given, but the Symphony was done in 1960-61, the L'Arl‚ sienne suites in 1956-57. The recording of the French orchestra is open, sweet, and a little bright; that of the RPO is much too dry, and almost mono in its narrow spread. --Ted Libbey
