"I had a great honor to play Serebrier's "Carmen Symphony" in the last summer under Mikk Murdvee. These two "Carmen Suites" on this disc contains as well the most popular tunes of the opera but with different orchestration. Bizet died before he could recognize the huge success of this sensuous opera. Neville Marriner and London Symphony Orchestra are in fine form for these highlights. Few years ago PENTATONE released the complete opera in their "Remastered Classics" series (Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Leonard Bernstein, Deutsche Grammophon). Compared to Bernstein, Marriner's tempo choices were slightly faster. The opening Prelude was flavored with lightness and effortless. The toreador's famous song included an assertive trumpet that made a great impression. L'Arlésienne Suites were performed very well, also. Marriner's faithful readings gave full justice for these masterpieces. LSO played here there and everywhere magnificently.
The original 4.0 surround sound was masterfully produced by Vittorio Negri. There is a realistic concert hall presence because the rear speakers were used just for the ambience. Negri was a great master during the days of quadro alongside with Thomas Mowrey. Delightful album with informative booklet notes. Highly recommended, definitely."
