This generous eighty-three-minute selection of pieces from the three ballet scores by Léo Delibes (1836-91) – Coppélia, La Source, Sylvia; thirty-two tracks – makes for charming and uplifting listening: the music is wonderfully insouciant, spirited and colourful, for which Neeme Järvi lavishes much affection to bring freshness, shape and vitality to these nineteenth-century dance gems, choreography respected. The Royal Scottish National Orchestra enters into the enjoyment with sensitivity and spirit – some very personable solos and collective dynamism – add in high production values from Brian Pidgeon and splendid sound courtesy of Ralph Couzens (4 & 5 November 2019, Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow) for a winner of a release. Maybe La Source is less-well-known than its companions; if so, it proves every bit as delightful, inventive and characterful. Chandos CHSA 5257 [SACD].
