“Of prime importance is the OFFENBACH ANTHOLOGY of Forlane, which unites on four CDs [the 4th devoted to LES CONTES D’HOFFMANN] selection of the most famous pieces from the collection of Laurent Fraison. Since these are very old recordings, partly with singers who had sung in the premieres of Offenbach’s last works, one can get a good idea of how this music was performed in that era. This is a document of unique value.”
