the Concerts Straram featured many of the top first-desk men in France,
including the legendary flutist Marcel Moyse. Recorded 1928-1930. Transfers and digital
mastering by Barton Wimble.

"The repertoire, of some of the most famous orchestral pieces by
Debussy, Ravel, Roussel, and Ibert, sounds wonderfully fresh, played
with an idiomatic finesse which would be looked for in vain nowadays."
- Classic Music MDC
"Gaubert's hyper-romantic Daphnis and Chloe is the sort of item that wins converts to old recordings... utterly charming" - American Record Guide
