La Damoiselle
Artist: Debussy / Orchestre Philharmonique De Radio France
Format: CD

More Info:

The Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France and Mikko Franck continue their collaboration with Alpha Classics and here invite the Maîtrise and Chour de Radio France to join them in a Debussy program. This recording couples La Damoiselle élue, a work described by the composer as a 'little oratorio in a mystical and somewhat pagan vein', the Nocturnes for orchestra, composed between 1897 and 1899, and the 'symphonic fragments' from Le Martyre de saint Sébastien fashioned by André Caplet less than a year after the work's first performance, and which ensured it would not be forgotten by posterity.
