Catalogue Number: 11K082
Description: Some extraordinary music here, and, for those of you who like the theremin and ondes Martenot, three of the four scores here use the latter instrument. Le Démon (1935) is the most modern-sounding score, making use of pounding, threatening ostinato techniques and chromatic motif-cells (a wordless chorus adds even more atmosphere at times). If you missed this fifteen years ago, don't miss it again! Jacques Tchamkerten (ondes Martenot), Slovak Philharmonic Choir, Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra; Adriano. Original 1993 Marco Polo release.
