In this fascinating recording the legendary Neeme Järvi explores two lesser-known French ballets by Sauguet and Ibert, complemented by the Ballet Suite from Massenet's opera HérodiadeLes Forains. Sauget's wide-ranging influences, notably the orchestration of Richard Strauss as well as the works of Satie and les Six, give his work a flowing, openly melodic style that is immediately appealing and full of wit and charm. Following the success of Les Forains, Ibert's ballet Les Amours de Jupiter premiered on 9 March 1946.

Tracks:

Sauguet: Les forains (Fair Entertainers)
