Jacques Ibert at work

Continuing with the collection of French Radio transcriptions, here is a recording (a studio concert) featuring members of the Student Orchestra of the Paris Conservatory conducted by Louis Martin in a performance of Capriccio for Ten Players by Jacques Ibert.

Judging from the details on the label, I would guess it's from around 1954-1955 and it offers some very distinctive playing styles that have all but disappeared from orchestras around the world.

An interesting piece of music fascinatingly played and certainly a small slice of history.
