Roger Désormière (1898 - 1963)

Désormière early conducting experience was largely with the Ballets Suédois and Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. Beginning in 1932 he became closely involved in music for films with Pathé-Nathan, composing music for La Règle du jeu, Le Mariage de Chiffon, and Le Voyageur de la Toussaint. He also conducted the orchestra in over 20 other films, such as Partie de campagne, La Règle du jeu, Remorques, La Belle et la bête, and La Beauté du diable. He conducted the first complete recording of Claude Debussy's opera Pelléas et Mélisande, the sessions taking place in the salle de l’ancien Conservatoire, Paris, from 24 April to 26 May 1941, during the Nazi occupation, with the 20-record set being issued in January 1942. During the occupation of Paris he was a member of the National Resistance Front; after Milhaud was forced to leave France, Désormière saved his paintings and personal possessions as well as paying the apartment rent during the Occupation.

"Five numbers from the balletsuite The Good-Humoured Ladies, with Tommasini's orchestration of the chosen Scarlatti sonatas are on the reverse. The disc note tells the story of the ballet but only gives the time markings of the five sonatas, not the keys or the Longo numbers. The celebrated Tempo di ballo (in D major) is here (L463) and the exquisite slow sonata in B minor (L33), the rest I have not had time to identify. The playing has great style and is most sensitive in the B minor sonata, and, except for the thin tone of the strings, the recording is excellent."
