Wonderful digital recording of Chabriers masterpieces!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chabrier: Orchestra Music [Neeme Järvi, Orchestre de le Suisse Romande ] [Chandos: CHSA 5122] (Audio CD)
I have always been a fan of Chabrier's Espana but have taken a while to update it from an old record I had. This SACD (also plays in any Cd player)of Orchestral Works by Chabrier was released this year (2013) by Chandos and gave me the idea opportunity to listen again to one of his masterpieces. Neeme Jarvi conducts the Orchestre De La Suisse Romande and they give a sparkling performance of Espana and the other eight Chabrier pieces on this Cd. I had heard the Joyeuse marche and Overture to "Gwendoline" before but it was also good to get to know others like Habanera, Lamento, Bourree fantasque and Suite pastorale etc. The Chandos engineers as ever capture Jarvi and his Orchestra beautifully with their open and spacious sound.
