[ Erato / Warner Classics / 14 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Sunday 20 September 2015

2016 marked the 40th anniversary of Jean Martinon's death. This 14-CD collection focuses on Martinon's activity with the Orchestre National de l'O.R.T.F between 1968 and 1975 and on repertoire - much of it French - that complements the works by Debussy and Ravel that feature on Martinon's best-known recordings. The box brings together recordings he made for both EMI and Erato and also includes the first commercial releases of live recordings kept at France's Institut national de l'audiovisuel (INA) and dating from 1970 (Roussel's Symphony No 3), 1971 (Bartók's Miraculous Mandarin) and 1972 (Falla's complete Three-Cornered Hat).
