5.0 out of 5 stars Bizet at his best! December 9, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Bizet's First Symphony in C is a gem and I absolutely love this CD. The music flows and flows with passion - whenever I listen to this, I don't want it to stop! To be honest, I don't know if it's possible to hear a better performance of this symphony. Of course, one usually can't go wrong with Sir Neville Marriner and St. Martin's Academy in the Fields and this is no exception. The L'Arlesieene Suites are performed exceptionally well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete and Unabridged November 23, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Given the conductor and the band, this recording of this wonderful product of Bizet's teenage years requires no further recommendation from me or anyone else.

This note is just to say that Sir Neville takes *all* of the repeats. Just to eliminate any possible ambiguity, that means the exposition repeats in both the first movement and the finale and the repeats of both halves in both the minuet (read scherzo) and trio. All of the first-time bars are played and no information is lost.

Buy, and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Dandy January 8, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
An orchestra such as the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields under Marriner ought to know just how to play Bizet's beautiful pieces with a light, brisk touch. You should expect to hear everything the music is about. You do.

The Symphony in C and the Suites are played at terrific tempos, and the orchestra is restrained just enough to keep the tension. I very much appreciate the way the brass are herded back in during the finale of the second L'Arlesienne Suite. As the two themes are juxtaposed, the Horns are allowed to bellow the second phrase of the main theme, which is just what I want to hear. I also recommend it to your ears.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hooray, BOTH L'Arleseinne Suites AND a symphony! January 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
It's quite difficult to get the L'Arlesienne suites in their entirety - too often the first Suite gets tucked onto the end of something else (e.g. Carmen) as a 'space-filler". Neville Marriner gives a vibrant perfomance of both suites, which delighted my husband, who has wanted them for some time (I enjoyed them, too!).

Bizet: Symphony in C; L'Arlésienne Suites Nos. 1 & 2
A friend of my mother asked me about the symphony in C by Bizet and I hear some fragments in youtube ,the music was very familiar but I hadn't realized that it was composed by Bizet, I always associated him with the operas Carmen and The fishers pearls ,but this music is very beautiful and I decided to buy this CD for this friend and myself .
This CD is very good, aside from this has this beautiful symphony, it also has the L'Arlisienne suite #1 and #2 that I enjoyed very much.
