"A uniquely authentic recording of this much-loved ballet, tremendous value at budget price."
"The Monte Carlo orchestra, long familiar with the work, give their all to the aged maestro, with voluptuous string playing in lyrical sections; and the recording is exceptionally vivid, with the widest of dynamic ranges. Absolutely not to be missed!"
By Geoffrey Norris
The Daily Telegraph (Australia)
"Rosenthal conducts the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra in performances that fizz with fun, sizzle with sauce and lilt with lyricism."
The music of the most famous composer of French operetta, Jacques Offenbach rivalled Johann Strauss in popularity, with such works as Orpheus in the Underworld, La Belle Hélène and Le Grande-Duchesse de Gérolstein. Drawing on melodies from these operettas, the famous conductor and composer, Manuel Rosenthal, created one of the most famous ballets, Gaîté Parisienne. Frothy and tuneful, this vivacious score has a companion piece, Offenbachiana, in which Rosenthal again plunders some of the composer’s most memorable melodies.
