Following a stream of requests – not least from the conductor himself! – we’ve releasing for the first time on CD internationally, Richard Bonynge’s first (1967/analogue) recording of ‘Giselle’. The enchanting score has even more spontaneity and bounce than Bonynge’s later digital remake for Decca.
