Notes & Reviews:

"This is a spectacular release. If Chandos offered nothing more here than some of the richest, warmest, fullest orchestral sound you'll hear on a CD...this recording would command serious attention. But when you add major orchestral works by one of this century's most important composers combined with superlative performances, the whole thing approaches irresistibility..." -Brown, Fanfare

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Timbres, espace, mouvement (1978, revised 1991) can be counted as Dutilleux's best orchestral composition, at once rooted in tradition yet persistently sceptical about conventional 'symphonic' values. It's a tricky score to bring off, and Tortelier is successful in negotiating its twists and turns of form. In the Violin Concerto (1985) Tortelier again favours a symphonic approach, and very effective it is too, with a soloist who's authoritative without being overly selfassertive.

The disc also includes Dutilleux's orchestral arrangement of his Cassou settings, and also his orchestration, made in 1944, of Jehan Alain's touching prayer. Well-characterised contributions from Martyn Hill and Neal Davies complete this valuable release.
