Jules Massenet is famous for his series of 27 operas that include Manon and Werther, but he also wrote a significant portfolio of orchestral music which include ballets, orchestral suites and incidental music. The works presented here show his versatility and lyricism and include the one-act ballet Espada, saturated in Iberian color and beguiling rhythms, as well as Les Erinnyes ('The Furies') with a vivid sequence of contrasting themes. Modeled after Liszt, Visions is a poeme-symphonique of both ethereal and dramatic power.
