Description
After winning the Koussevitzky Prize in Boston in 1966, American conductor Lawrence Foster made his debut in England, where he was later appointed principal guest conductor with the Royal Philharmonic. In 1971, he succeeded Sir John Barbirolli as director of the Houston Symphony, and from 1979 to 1990 he led the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo. Although he has won a number of international awards for other recordings, including the Grand Prix International du Disque, Maestro Foster regards this 1991 release as one of his very best. Paul Dukas cultivated craftsmanship to the highest degree, and his three-movement Symphony in C (1896)—composed one year before The Sorcerer's Apprentice—exhibits his mastery of sonata form. Gabriel Fauré wrote Pelléas and Mélisande as incidental music for the stage work at London's Prince of Wales theater. Both pieces are transcendent examples of French orchestral music.
