Georges Bizet
Recommended Recordings



"Ah, music! What a beautiful art! But what a wretched profession!"

Bizet: Carmen - The First Complete Recording
(Hermann Bachmann, Emmy Destinn, Berlin State Opera Orchestra )
The Marston label's new release of the first-ever complete recording of "Carmen" attests to the magic new technologies can visit on the early days of recording. Here, a distant golden age of singing and style gets a new lease on life in this German-language recording made in 1908--just over three decades after the world premiere of the opera itself. Take a look at this thrilling "Carmen" as well as other legendary performances on our list of significant historic recordings.

Djamileh
(Franco Bonisolli, Jean-Philippe Lafont, et al; Bavarian Radio Chorus, Munich Radio Symphony Orchestra; Lamberto Gardelli, conductor)


The Fair Maid of Perth
(Owen Brannigan, Gwen Catley, et al; B. B. C. Theater Chorus, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra; Sir Thomas Beecham, conductor)
