Chopin Les Sylphides
Ibert Divertissement

Paris Conservatory Orchestra
A Product Of London Records

From Billboard - December 1, 1958: Nice cover shot of ballerina Alicia Markova enhances jacket of this album. It's a true, ballet-style reading a la the 19th century, with Desomiere offering quiet, graceful and piquant interpretations rather than orchestral flash and brilliance. Altho the conducting is a little careless at times, there's no competition in its price bracket, and disk should pull in coin.
