This is a very enjoyable disc. Bernstein was often a good conductor of French music, especially of the composers featured here. The three Honegger items are superb, especially the beautiful Pastorale d'Ete . I don't know of a better performance of this lovely work. The splendid Milhaud La Creation du Monde is terrific as is the Debussy Saxophone Rhapsody. The weakest item is the Ravel Scherazade where a younger, fresher voice is called for. The recording quality can be slightly dry , especially in the strings , but I don't think this is a serious problem given that some of performances are over 50 years old. This disc can be recommended strongly as it contains some real gems.
