Are you one of those people who occasionally get angry over failed opera and ballet productions? Traviata didn't have any clear position once again, in Swan Lake the dancers were dressed in burlap bags from the local discount shop ... Now there's a remedy: with the Saxon Wind Philharmonic, the feather-light woodwinds dance over the stage in Bizet's Carmen and, instead of washed-up toreros, there are sharp, cutting brass. The third GENUIN CD of the elite wind orchestra, Classiques français, will not only delight opera friends: French music for the stage rings out so impressively and so colourfully from the loudspeakers that one doesn't miss singers or dancers in the least. ... Vive la France, vivat Saxonia!
