Description: This 1936 commedia eroica based on the immortal Rostand source breathes a haunted, nocturnal atmosphere which is bittersweet, fragile and dreamlike (at one point, the vocal writing is influenced by Debussy's Pelléas, at another, Mussorgsky is suggested in its Oriental atmosphere) and the composer's tonal richness, musical originality and ability to evoke a wealth of tone colors from a standard orchestra with traditional instruments makes this an absorbing work.
