Naxos' 20th Century French Classics Collection

Naxos launches the first volume of Debussy’s complete orchestral works and completes the Varèse orchestral music project.

Jun Märkl conducts the Orchestre National de Lyon, one of France’s leading orchestras, in stellar performances of La Mer, L’après-midi d’un faune, Children’s Corner, and Jeux — the recording was named “CD of the Month” by Classic FM Magazine.

The second, and final, volume of the complete orchestral works of Varèse includes the composer’s monumental Ameriques, Ecuatorial and other works, performed by the Polish National Radio Symphony conducted by Christopher Lyndon-Gee. Volume I with these forces received outstanding critical acclaim. There are more recordings of 20th Century French Classics in the vast Naxos catalogue — click below to check them out!
