5.0 out of 5 stars Bizet symphony in C 4 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bizet's lovely symphony is given a fine performance here. It is a work full of Mediterranean sun and many beautiful touches.He wrote it when he was 17 and just put it to one side and it was not performed until 60 years later, long after his death.Each movement is a delight but the slow movement is just exquisite.The other items are good, too, and the rarely heard 'Roma' is certainly worth hearing though it is not as memorable as the other two works recorded here.It has a lovely introduction.With fine performances, good sound and fresh, inspired music this disc is a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden Treasures 11 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Anyone interested in extending their collection of 19th century orchestral music should pay this record serious notice. These works may not be played with as much regularity as many other works but this CD makes a good case for their consideration. It opens with Bizet's Symphony in C, first written when he was just 17 years old. For me the work rewards repeated listening and whilst not perhaps being a masterpiece it does contain some fine moments. The first movement is rather Haydnesque, Whilst the slow movement is whistfull with a gentle oboe melody and a string tune that is reminiscent of the Symphony Fantastique. The third movement scherzo is for me the highlight of the whole piece, with an infection rhythm followed by a short yet heroic theme on strings. The fourth movement raps it up nicely and brings to mind Mendelssohn.

The Jeux d'enfants follows and, although all 5 movements are short, it has an abundance of charm and lyricism.

The Roma suite ends this CD and once again we see somthing of the invention of the mind that conceived the L'arlesienne suits.

All three pieces are very finely played and the sound balance is very good in this digital recording. Furthermore at nearly 76 mintutes long it represents very good value and anyone searchg for recordings of these works should be well pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamic Recording of a delicious symphony. 21 Aug 2013
By Richard Pissillo - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jarvi's recording of the Symphony in C is a revelation. I own 2 others, so I really purchased this for Roma, which I had not heard. Plenty of excitement in the symphony, and the impossibly beautiful slow mvmt is rendered perfectly. Makes Benzi and LSO, and even Beecham seem dull in comparison. How does a 16 year old write such a profoundly gorgeous piece? Mozart's and Mendlelssohn's influence is here, but it is not imitation (sadly, like those 2, Bizet died young as well). It is a uniquely delicious creation. Roma is rarely played and recorded. The liner notes suggest it cannot make up its mind whether to be a symphony or a lighter piece. So, you need to take it on its own terms. No such problem exists with Jeux d'enfants. It is unabashedly a suite. If you have an affinity for Debussy's Petite Suite, you will enjoy this. The liner notes are on spot, it reveals Bizet's liveliness, concision and clarity of outline, imagination and youthful energy. The recording of the orchestra de Paris displays the same vigor that these pieces call for. A very nice disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Bizet 14 Feb 2011
By Peter Prainito - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Bizet's wonderful "Symphony in C" and "Jeux D'Enfants" have been blessed with many great recordings, and this newest one in no exception. The real treat on this recording is Bizet's rarely recorded "Roma Symphony". It reminds me so much of Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony, especially the joyous second movement which makes you want to get up and dance. The performances and sound are outstanding. The CD lists the performances as being recorded live, but you'll never know it by the silence. No audience noise can heard; no coughing, no clapping at the end, just beautiful well-played music!!
