This disc provides the useful task of combining Ibert’s best-known orchestral works – Escales and the Divertissement – with some of his less-often-heard music. Readers after richer, suaver performances than here, however, should try Decca’s Montreal Ibert disc, or Frémaux’s classic CBSO Divertissement (EMI). Matthew Rye
