Notes and Editorial Reviews

The music of the French composer Henri Dutilleux is the aural equivalent of a Van Gogh painting – almost dizzyingly kaleidoscopic, with an imagination utterly individual and life-affirming. Dutilleux was more meticulous than prolific, so his oeuvre can be collected on just a few discs. The Chandos set of his orchestral works is highly recommended for its lush sound. But this four-CD Erato col- lection includes chamber and vocal works, too, along with pioneering interpretations by the likes of Mstislav Rostropovich (conducting Métaboles and Timbres, espace, mouvement), Daniel Barenboim (the two early symphonies) and Paul Sacher (the cimbalom-laced Mystère de l’instant). The pianist’s wife, Geneviève Joy, plays the great Read more Piano Sonata of 1948, and Seiji Ozawa leads the deeply moving Shadows of Time of 1997. This is a treasure trove.
