Description

Eloq: Invitation to the Dance on CD

The recorded legacy of Albert Wolff is one of the most sought-after by collectors. Of Dutch parentage, but born in Paris, Wolff was something of a polymath: pianist, organist, conductor, composer, and had a long career in recording studios beginning in 1920. His first recordings for Decca, starting in the summer of 1951, were a complete Carmen (with Suzanne Juyol), a Manon (with Janine Micheau) as well as several French orchestral suites and individual pieces. By reciprocal arrangement with RCA that Decca had at the time, the abridged version of Giselle was issued on RCA in 1959 and had to wait fourteen years for it's appearance on Decca, when it appeared on it's 'Eclipse' imprint in 1973. This collection brings together balletic works by Glazunov, Ravel, Weber and Falla, together with Liszt's Second Hungarian Rhapsody.
