Notes and Editorial Reviews

'The listener is left entirely free to revel in Chausson's sensualistic palette of scented harmonies and timbres. A revelation - certainly one of my top releases for 1997' (Classic CD) 'An exemplary recording of one of his finest works' (The Times) 'These accounts traverse the gamut of emotions, bristling with energy, lyricism and conviction, and ensuring that this disc will never gather much dust' (BBC Music Magazine) 'Un fort bon disque qui confirme les excellents choix artistiques d'Hyperion dans le répertoire française' (Répertoire, France) 'It is difficult not to succumb to what has been aptly called Chausson's 'refined and voluptuous melancholy', to a richness and complexity that can engulf the senses' (Gramophone) 'This release Read more counts as desert-island material' (Soundscapes) 'This really is very fine ... the sense of teamwork is quite exceptional and the resulting music-making radiates an inspiring eloquence ... a release no true Francophile can afford to miss' (Hi Fi News & Record Review) Read less
