About

The World Premiere recording of Tony Aubin’s radio performance from 1958 gives us an image of the lyric tragedy as it would have been performed by musicians, most of whom knew the period that Maurice Emmanuel composed in. Indeed, the 1958 recording of Salamine allows the listener to hear some of the great French singers of the mid-century.

The Swiss born soprano Flore Wend had been noticed just before the Second World War, and was a great interpreter of French repertoire. André Vessières was one of the great French bass singers of the period. Jean Giraudeau, who had begaun his career in 1942 and made his Paris debut in 1947, was in 1958 one of the leading French singers. A few months before singing in Salamine he had participated in the French premiere of Poulenc’s 'Dialogues des Carmélites'.
