Catalogue Number: 10W003
Description: Besides operas, Massenet wrote a significant portfolio of orchestral music which include ballets, orchestral suites and incidental music. The works presented here show his versatility and lyricism and include the one-act 1908 ballet Espada, saturated in Iberian color and beguiling rhythms, as well as Les Érinnyes of 1876 (‘The Furies’) with a vivid sequence of contrasting themes. Modeled after Liszt, Visions (1891)is a poème-symphonique of both ethereal and dramatic power. Royal Scottish National Orchestra; Jean-Luc Tingaud.
