MARTINON Ibert: Divertissement · Borodin 2

Jean Martinon

“Here is a Div ertissement that really diverts — in the modern sense. Much of it is extremely funny, combining wit, silliness and glorious vulgarity as only the French can. The performance could hardly be bettered, and it is obvious that the players were thoroughly enjoying themselves … extremely well recorded, and strongly recommended.”
