Each volume in the 'Portraits' series is devoted to a French composer who has now largely been forgotten. With performances by many talented artists, it presents a panorama of his works. The 'Portrait' of Félicien David aims to complement the discography already available with world premiere recordings of the composer's works. Among these are a glimpse of his orchestral output, with the Symphony no. 3 and the Overture to his opéra-comique La Perle du Brésil, the work that really launched David on his operatic career.
