Denise Duval – Georges Prêtre
EMI Classics

The original benchmark recording of the work with the performers who created it. The DVD release of the film version by Dominique Delouche is planned for 2009. That might be a better buy, allowing you to see the outstanding action and the unrivalled presence of Denise Duval, so beloved of Poulenc.
