Bizet: Carmen Suite; Gounond: Faust Ballet/Funeral March
GSC035 (STEREO) - Bizet: Carmen Suite; Gounod: Faust ballet music; Funeral March of a Marionette - Royal Opera House Orchestra, Covent Garden/Alexander Gibson - Robustly recorded versions of familiar suites, originally issued here in the US on an RCA LSC-series LP, subsequently reissued in 1965 on Victrola. The disc used for this transcription was an early pressing, plum label Victrola disc. No recording venue listed, but sounds very much as though it was set in Kingsway Hall. Very enjoyable, and well worth the MP3 price. CD cover, tray, and disc art are included in the download file.
