Title: Eloq: Overtures in Hi-Fi

The recorded legacy of Albert Wolff is one of the most sought-after by collectors. Of Dutch parentage, but born in Paris, Wolff was something of a polymath: pianist, organist, conductor, composer, and had a long career in recording studios beginning in 1920. His first recordings for Decca, starting in the summer of 1951, were a complete Carmen (with Suzanne Juyol), a Manon (with Janine Micheau) as well as several French orchestral suites and individual pieces. 'Overtures in Hi-Fi' was the title given to a now 'cult' LP of Wolff conducting six overtures: Si j'etais roi, Le Domino Noir, Zampa, Donna Diana, Pique Dame and the Merry Wives of Windsor. To these are added a further ten overtures to make up this 2 CD anthology.
