Pierre Dumoussaud - Debussy: Pelléas et Mélisande - Gramophone
For a quintessentially French opera, there are surprisingly few recordings of Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande with a French orchestra. That makes this new account from the Opéra National de Bordeaux conducted by Pierre Dumoussaud doubly welcome. This is a really distinguished orchestral rendition. Alpha’s recording is exceptionally fine.
