 Delightful listening February 19, 2014 By Alan Beadle (Bowie, MD) See All My Reviews "I thoroughly enjoy this recording for its spritely expressions between the piano and orchestra; it is simply delightful listening." Report Abuse
 Best available "Symphonie sur un chant montagnard" February 26, 2013 By R Gregory C (Arlington, VA) See All My Reviews "Get this disc if you're at all curious to hear a French symphony contemporaneous to and comparable in quality to those of Saint-Saens and Franck. For all his faults, including virulent anti-semitism, it must be said that D'Indy was a delightful orchestrator, and a music student could write an entire term paper on the various techniques in this colorful score. The recording balances on this budget re-issue are superb but not fussy, and the ear can easily pick out simultaneously played themes. The latter is fortunate because the work is a terrific specimen of Wagner-Liszt-inspired motivic variation, D'Indy's musical signals coming to the fore without being overemphasized, and the solo piano never artificially prominent, which the composer clearly didn't intend."
