Notes & Reviews:

Son of Franois Magnard, the bestselling author and editor of Le Figaro Magnard could have chosen to live the comfortable life his family's wealth afforded him. But he disliked being called "fils du Figaro," and decided to have a career in music based entirely on his talent and without any help from family connections. In 1914, at the beginning of World War I, Magnard sent his wife and two daughters to a safe hiding place while he stayed behind to guard the estate of Manoir de Fontaines at Baron, Oise. When German soldiers trespassed, he fired at them, killing one of them, and they fired back and set the house on fire. The fire destroyed Magnard's unpublished scores, such as the orchestral score of his early opera Yolande, the orchestral score of Guercur and a more recent song cycle. It is believed that Magnard died in the fire.

Gramophone Magazine
Where Sanderling scores is in the long lyrical tunes which, as in the Scherzo of the Second Symphony, you feel the severe Magnard is allowing himself to write, as it were, under the bedclothes with a torch - this tune, in particular, shaped by Sanderling with great feeling and dynamic range.
