Limited Deluxe Edition!

2CD + Blu-ray Audio disc presenting Igor Markevitch' 1959 reading of Berlioz' La Damnation de Faust with the Orchestre des Concerts Lamoureux and a cast led by the impressive Richard Verreau. Presented in deluxe hardback edition marking the 150th anniversary of death of Hector Berlioz (8th March 1869).

"The names of the soloists may not be familiar to everyone nowadays (Richard Verreau, Michel Roux and Consuelo Rubio) but with the Lamoureux Orchestra and Elisabeth Brasseur Choir under Igor Markevitch, this is an unusually satisfying and exciting version of Berlioz's ‘dramatic legend'" -  Gramophone Magazine, 2007

"The performance is dramatic and vivid... and the recording sounds remarkably fresh, with an attractive overall bloom on the sound... The orchestral contribution emerges with fine colour, and Markevitch draws the full effect from Berlioz's quirky touches of scoring... Richard Verreau as Faust is especially impressive among the soloists, but Consuelo Rubio is good too and so is Pierre Mollet, with Michel Roux an effective Mephistopheles. In short this is very enjoyable" - The Penguin Stereo Record Guide
