Said to be the only French orchestra admired by Toscanini, the Concerts Staram featured many of the top first-desk men in France, including the legendary flutist Marcel Moyse.

Debussy:Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune (Philippe Gaubert, conducting)
Ravel:Daphnis et Chloé, Suite No. 2, Alborada del gracioso
Roussel: Le Festin de l'araignée
Ibert: Escales
Ravel: Alborada del gracioso

Walther Stramm, conductor

(ADD Mono) Recorded 1928 - 30

"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
