Many Romantic composers owe their fame to one of their symphonic poems. Alongside acknowledged French masterpieces in the genre, the fifteen tracks presented here include four previously unrecorded works and several rarities by women composers. The Lyon National Orchestra, a great champion of French Romantic music, offers a palette of shimmering colors under the baton of Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider as it relates in music the legend of Merlin the Magician, the fairytale of Sleeping Beauty, and the misadventures of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
