Disc No: CDS-1039-2 Auber is the very essence of French opera. His importance during his lifetime was signifacant. Most French composers of this period were influenced by him. Today, however, not many works by him have been able to maintain a place in the standard repertoire.
Originally, Auber wrote his work as a sideline and somtimes under a pseudonym 'La Marre'. His works, however, was highly regarded by the Paris audience. Aubert became famous with 'La Muette de Portici'. When hi died in 1871, musical history had perhaps overtaken him - but he surpasses many of his contemporaries in style and wit.

It has been said that Auber is 'Champagne in Music', French in spirit and taste.
