About this Recording

MASSENET, J.: Visions / Brumaire / Phèdre: Overture / Les Érinnyes Suite / Espada (Royal Scottish National, Tingaud)

Jules Massenet is famous for his series of 27 operas that include Manon and Werther, but he also wrote a significant portfolio of orchestral music which include ballets, orchestral suites and incidental music. The works presented here show his versatility and lyricism and include the one-act ballet Espada, saturated in Iberian colour and beguiling rhythms, as well as Les Érinnyes (‘The Furies’) with a vivid sequence of contrasting themes. Modelled after Liszt, Visions is a poème-symphonique of both ethereal and dramatic power.
