It's a shame that some artists are remembered for one work when some other works would suffice to keep them before the public. Novelist James T Farrell said he regretted writing "Studs Lonigan" because it was all people knew of him. He felt he'd written better stuff but that it languished because of "Studs". If all you know of Adolphe Adam (1803-1856) is his "Giselle", give this ballet a try. "The Faries' God-Daughter", as the title translates, was staged in 1849 after Adam was bankrupted by the Revolution of 1848. This is my favorite Adam. The set consists of 2 CD's and runs just over 2 hours. What puzzles me is that it was written "with Alfred, Comte de Saint-Julien". I haven't been able to find out anything about this person. I'd like to know which parts of "La Filleule" are his and which are Adam's. If you know anything about him, please create a little review of your own and tell us. Thanks.
