Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The mixture of post-Wagnerian chromaticism and refined orchestral sensuousness is typical of a style that left an indelible impression on French music for decades. The performances are faultless. Louis Lortie is the restrained yet dexterous soloist in the Symphonie.” – The Guardian (UK)

d'Indy is his own man, conjuring up fragrant atmosphere from his mountain theme and generating a good deal of healthy vigor in the finale. All this is potently communicated by the orchestral playing and by Louis Lortie's scintillating fluency in the piano obbligato.

– Gramophone [6/2013]
