EMI France and Michel Plasson have created many recordings of major works of French composers, some never recorded before. Many have since received the highest distinctions worldwide. In May 1984, Michel Plasson conducted 16 performances of Aida at the Palais Omnisport de Paris-Bercy for an audience of nearly 200.000 spectators. Since that time, he has performed Turandot (1985), Verdi's Requiem (1986) and Nabucco (1987) with the same success. "All those who love this impassioned Coethe setting have a treat in store for them here; so do lovers of eloquent singing."
