Based on the story of Bluebeard, Dukas set a text by the Belgian writer Maurice Maeterlinck and took seven years to complete the work. It was well received by fellow composers and musicians. Vincent d’Indy thought it “the most important piece of music drama since Wagner”. This great recording from 1986 is now available for the first time on CD.
