After two albums devoted to Italian bel canto and De Falla’s Spain respectively, the Orchestre national d’Île-de-France heads to France and invite us to dance with a third collection dedicated to ballet music created at the Paris Opera. Rare and unfairly overlooked, La Bien aimée is a gem of collage technique, Milhaud’s work juxtaposing the music of Schubert and Liszt and arranging it for pianola (player piano) and orchestra. Meanwhile, Stravinsky’s Firebird, that incontrovertible masterpiece, transports us to the enchanting world of Russian fairy tales under Enrique Mazzola’s exalted baton.
