About this Recording

PROUST, M.: Remembrance of Things Past, Vol. 2: Within a Budding Grove: Part I (Abridged)

Within a Budding Grove, Part One, continues Marcel Proust’s monumental cycle Remembrance of Things Past which has been described as ‘one of the greatest works of imagination of all time’. As the young narrator succumbs to the charms of the enchanting Gilberte, the author presents us with an unparalleled account of the pangs of adolescent love. Proust has created from the raw material of his life a work of art of unsurpassed originality, filled with his own uniquely sensitive and subtle spirit. Within a Budding Grove was awarded the Prix Goncourt in 1918.
