Very lively French light orchestral favorites. This release is considered by
some to be the best RCA recording of all! Recorded June 1954 in Boston Symphony
Hall, Arthur Fiedler conducts the Boston Pops Orchestra.
Fiedler's performance of Offenbach's Gaite Parisienne combines delightfully
lyrical music with spectacular sonics to create an unforgettable listening
experience. The fabled acoustics of Boston's Symphony hall and the magnificent
tonal hues of the Boston Pops are on full display on this fanciful and festive
Gaîté Parisienne (literally, "Parisian Gaiety") is a ballet choreographed by
Léonide Massine to music by Jacques Offenbach orchestrated by Manuel Rosenthal
in collaboration with Jacques Brindejonc-Offenbach, the composer's nephew. With
a libretto and décor by Comte Étienne de Beaumont and costumes executed by
Barbara Karinska, it was first presented by the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo at
the Théâtre de Monte Carlo on 5 April 1938.
"These records are definitive." -Michael Fremer, analogplanet.com
