I almost followed a knee-jerk reaction to sell this CD because of what I take to be short measure: under 50 minutes of music on the disc.

But one should come to know the value of things over there price. I learnt from giving the Dutoit equivalent a try; normally I like him, but the Classic FM reissue of his Bizet album just lacks that something, that je ne sais quoi.

And, most importantly, the LSO has an excellent flute for L'Arlesienne, which is very important. Abbado's approach is engaging, rumbustious, without being too hot or too cool. And if the CD isn't exactly jam-packed, at least it won't weary you.

You know what this music has always reminded me of: the 'lighter' music of Sibelius. I wonder if anyone has written a study of the possible French influence on Sibelius' compositions? Or the influence of Schubert on Bizet!

bizet's ballet music never disappoints, this is a great recording for both suite, although number two would be the favourite

HASH(0x9d14bf0c) out of 5 stars Superlative Playing of Bizet's Suites from Abbado & LSO 19 July 2008
By John Kwok - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These not-so-vintage late 1970s/early 1980s recordings of Bizet's great orchestral suites are available now on Deutsche Grammophon's latest low-priced label. There is indeed much to recommend in these recordings of Bizet's "L'Arlésienne Suites Nos. 1 & 2; Carmen Suite No. 1", with excellent, precise, and warm performances from the London Symphony Orchestra under a younger Claudio Abbado's baton. Most noteworthy indeed are the sterling musicianship demonstrated by the orchestra's winds and strings. Having heard other recordings of these works, it is hard to think of another that would be more preferable than these. And yet, I must express my own disappointment that Deutsche Grammophon choose not to include Bizet's "Carmen Suite No. 2". Still, I do think that there is ample superb music making present here that's worth the rather abbreviated length (less than 48 minutes) of this otherwise perfect CD.

HASH(0x9d14f168) out of 5 stars Bizet's Best Bet... 17 Oct. 2007
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
.
That talented Frenchman Georges Bizet died far too young (aged 37), and therefore his oeuvre is unfortunately so small. Among the gems left us however, the two L'Arlésienne Suites and the Carmen Suite.

This is a fine disc, beginning with the Van Gogh cover art. Abbado and the LSO are great here. Ultra-rich sound.

Nice price.

Totally bonus.

HASH(0x9d154618) out of 5 stars good but stingy 22 Jun. 2008
By Rondine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a rather nice performance of the L'Arlesianne suites. I think it very stingy of DGG that only the first Carmen Suite was included which I hadn't realized when I bought it.
