Click on the link here for Audio Player: Dukas – La Peri
A repost from last year with better sound and much improved player. The Paris Conservatory Orchestra, lead by the legendary Andrè Cluytens at the 1949 Besancon Festival in a performance of La Peri by Paul Dukas.
In the year since I initially posted this, I found out this recording hasn’t been re-issued and the originals seem to have gone missing, or are sitting in some dark basement somewhere in Paris.
All I know is, this is a wonderful performance by a great orchestra lead by an iconic conductor and I plan to be making more of these discoveries in the coming weeks.
In the meantime . . .
