    Default Darius Milhaud 10 CD box set on Forlane

    I found this interesting and attractively priced set of Milhaud's operas, which fans of Les Six and/or vintage French opera broadcasts may like:





    Here are the details, from forumopera.com:

    DÉTAILS
    CD 1 et 2 : Les Choéphores / Les Euménides / Orestie d’Eschyle
    Bouvier, Rehfuss, Moizan, orchestre Lamoureux, Markévitch / Brumaire, Vilma, Anglot, Stephany, orchestre dirigé par P.M. Le Conte / Claire Croiza, orchestre des Nouveaux concerts d’Anvers, Louis De Vocht

    CD 3 : Le Retour de l’enfant prodigue / Les Malheurs d’Orphée
    Demigny, Collard, Bacquier, Vessières, Caron, orchestre de l’Opéra de Paris, Milhaud / Brumaire, Demigny, Collart, Collard, Cussac, Vessières, Neumann, Verzoub, Orchestre de l’Opéra de Paris, Milhaud

    CD 4 : Le Pauvre Matelot / Trois Opéras-minute / Les Amours de Ronsard
    Brumaire, Giraudeau, Depraz, Vessières, orchestre de l’Opéra de Paris, Milhaud / Brumaire, Collart, Michel, Amade, Maurane, Demigny, orchestre radio-lyrique, Cloëz

    CD 5-6 : Christophe Colomb / Le Mariage de la feuille et du cliché
    Massard, Micheau, Gireaudeau, Depraz, Lovano, Peyron, orchestra Radio Lyrique, Rosenthal / Collard, Collart, Amade, Giraudeau, Depraz, orchestre Colonne, P.M. Leconte

    CD 7-8 : Maximilien / Cantate nuptiale / Les Quatre Elements / Fontaines et sources / Chants hébraïques
    Brumaire, Scharley, Doucet, Mollien, Giraudeau, Depraz, orchestre RTF, Rosenthal / Micheau, orchestre de la Société des concerts du conservatoire, Milhaud / Bouvier

    CD 9-10 : Bolivar
    Berton, Scharley, Bianco, Giraudeau, Serkoyan, Mars, orchestre de l’Opéra de Paris, Baudo.


    10 CD Forlane FOR 17012

    All I've personally heard of Milhaud is the opera Bolivar, in the recording included here, which is or was on YouTube. I listened to it for the singers and wasn't blown away by the opera itself, though I must admit to knowing very little about 20th century opera. Has anyone else heard this box set? What do you think of Milhaud's operas, and the recordings available?

    Looks very interesting, did you find it on line?

    Yes, I was idly googling that recording of Bolivar to see if there were any reviews, when I saw the box set. I thought someone must have mentioned it here since it's quite a few months old, but if there were any posts on the subject, I couldn't find them. I saw that Balthazar did a couple of interesting short posts about Milhaud operas, but referring to the more recent recordings on Naxos. Since I've discovered the treasures available in these mid century RTF/ORTF broadcasts I've learned that many aren't widely available on CD and even then not always at a sensible price, so I thought I'd put the word out now, before the Amazon marketplace price gouging starts. Plus, I hopefully get to benefit from musical opinions more informed than my own!

    If I try to find it, (using your picture) it's only bringing me to Chinese or Japanese sites.

    Finally there's a good copy on the way, I bought it right after your post, I received 3 copy's with either missing CD or twice the same track.
    I did get a refund and now they say they have a good one.
    So ordered it again.
