Sunday Gramophone - Jean Giardino Conducts Music Of Marcel Delannoy -1952

Sunday Gramophone - Jean Giardino conducts the French National Orchestra in a radio performance of Marcel Delannoy's ballet Cendrillon - recorded circa 1952.

<strong>Jean Giardino - not a household name.</strong>


Again this week from the French Radio Transcription collection. This one is a radio studio performance of a ballet written in 1935 by Marcel Delannoy. Cendrillon (Cinderella) and performed in this recording by the French National Orchestra conducted by Jean Giardino. Giardino is not a terribly familiar name outside of France unless you collect French 78 rpm discs and early lp's from the 1940's and early 1950's. He recorded almost exclusively for Pathe`. Delannoy is primarily known these days as a soundtrack composer as well as music critic, but his early works received good reviews and considerable attention from his contemporaries, including Ravel.

Here's a recording that probably hasn't been heard since it was first made of a piece that is seldom performed.


If you don't mind . . . .it's very much appreciated.
