Notes and Editorial Reviews

Henri Dutilleux, born in 1916, is a 96 years old young man who has made his own way in the jungle of the musical world of the second half of the 20th Century, ignoring the trends, continuing in his own perspective the path of French modern music opened by Debussy and Ravel. This 5-CD collection is a wonderful panorama, ideal to discover and love this music, featuring for the first time on CD a wonderful performance of the 1st Symphony by the Orchestre National de Lille and Jean-Claude Casadesus as well as the original recording of Le Loup, one of the most important ballets written after 1945, both recorded in the presence of the composer.
