Charles Ludien Lambert Sr, Ludien-Léon Guillaume Lambert Jr: Ouverture de Brodéliande and other works

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Naxos launched its American Classics series from overseas, but they have begun to dig deeper into the forgotten byways of American music than most American labels have dared.

Naxos launched its American Classics series from overseas, but they have begun to dig deeper into the forgotten byways of American music than most American labels have dared. In the case of Creole composers Charles Lucièn Lambert Sr. and his son Lucièn-Léon Guillaume Lambert Jr., this seems especially appropriate, for like the most famous New Orleans-born Creole composer, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, the Lamberts earned their contemporary fame abroad primarily in France but also in South America and Portugal.

A companion disc devoted to music by another Creole composer, Edmond Dédé, provides similar pleasures.
