This review is from: Massenet: Neeme Jarvi Conducts (Audio CD)
Massenet was an influential figure in French music in the later 19c, but it is only when you hear this very well-played selection that you get some idea why. All credit to the authoritative Neemi Jarvi and the assured Suisse Romande; and credit too to Truls Mork for tackling the Fantaisie with such assurance, and making the listener feel that this piece does not deserve to be so obscure. The livelier music is played with enormous spirit, and benefits from the fine, vivid Chandos recording. A highly enjoyable disc.
