The Ireland RTE National Symphony Orchestra and conductor Jean-Luc Tingaud present this fascinating programme of orchestral works by Georges Bizet, which includes a number of seldom performed works and reveals more of his talent for writing colourful, atmospheric and melodic music. Of note here is Roma, conceived in Italy as a symphony after Bizet had won the Prix de Rome. The work occupied the composer for 11 years before the final version heard on this recording.

The success of Bizet’s opera Carmen has overshadowed the rest of his output, but this fascinating orchestral programme, which includes a number of seldom performed works, reveals more of his talent for writing colourful, atmospheric and melodic music. The Overture in A was Bizet’s first orchestral work and unperformed in his lifetime, while the Marche funèbre was originally the prelude to an opera about love and vengeance, now lost. The dramatic overture Patrie captures the mood following the Franco-Prussian war of 1870–71, while the Petite suite is a set of orchestrations of movements from Jeux d’enfants (Children’s Games). Conceived in Italy as a symphony, after Bizet had won the Prix de Rome, Roma occupied the composer for 11 years before the final version heard here.
