This is the first recording featuring the new chief conductor of the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, Marc Soustrot, in French music by Bizet. It is a winning combination of an orchestra famous for its brilliant Delius recording and an idiomatic French conductor. These works by Bizet can hardly be bettered. And with sound to match, this is truly "magnifique"!
