Armadillo Music

After increasing successes with ballets, melodramas and theatrical works, Adolphe Adam won widespread acclaim with Giselle (highlights can be heard on 8.572924). A year later he wrote La Jolie Fille de Gand, which was received just as enthusiastically by audiences and critics alike. This delightful ballet-pantomime with trademark thematic brilliance is set in Ghent and Venice, it's plot one of abduction and romance. Adam's score, which features the use of cornets and the tuba-like ophicleide, displays a more daring sense of color than that of Giselle.
