The second volume in this series (Volume1is on 8.574005) continues to explore little-known examples of Auber's elegant and refined operatic music. Julie was his first stage work, it's fantasia-like beauty foreshadowing the operas, opéras-comiques and lyric dramas to come. Striking melodies and haunting episodes abound in these overtures and entr'actes, and there is restrained yet fragrant Iberian color in the overture to Léocadie. The Violin Concerto is lightly scored and gentle, with a tarantella-like finale full of folk vitality.
