About

With this new recording, François-Xavier Roth, leading conductor of many ensembles and repertoires, and Les Siècles, with several award-winning discs under their belt, return to an unsung genius, Paul Dukas.

For the general public, Dukas (1865-1935), is the author of only one work: 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice', published in 1897. With it, he met lasting success, being in popular repertoire since its creation and particularly popularised by Walt Disney's 'Fantasia'.

Yet this friend of Claude Debussy gave us further evidence of his immense talent with the 'Cantata Velléda' and the Overture to 'Polyeucte', restored to us by the generosity of the Palazzetto Bru-Zane.

This recording was made on instruments from the late 19th century, to restore the original refined colours and brilliant orchestrations of Paul Dukas.
