More Info:

A classic recording of a classic pairing of French song cycles. Composed some 60 years apart, Berlioz's Les Nuits d'été and Ravel's Shéhérazade both visit romantic, mysterious and exotic locations, evoking a wealth of moods and sensations. Janet Baker, an irresistible storyteller, is accompanied on her journey by Sir John Barbirolli, conducting the New Philharmonia Orchestra with sensitivity and imagination.
