Notes & Reviews:

Henri Dutilleux (1916-2013) was the outstanding French composer of recent decades, despite produced barely a dozen major compositions in a six-plus decade career. - The Symphony No. 1 is an early work and the composer's first piece for orchestra. It is in four movements, but these do not all conform to traditional types. - Cellist Xavier Phillips' interpretation of Tout un monde lointain was praised by the composer, who remarked, "(he) fully owns this work and evokes the very essence of its title."

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
The First Symphony is very, very good. The piece is full of those big, lush, tightly controlled waves of sound that the French were so good at. If you don't know this composer, this is a perfect place to start. Tout un Monde Lointain is Dutilleux's cello concerto; the titles all come from Baudelaire's poetry. It is more confident, more original. The soloist is expressive, competent, and a joy to hear. The Shadows of Time is for three children's voices and orchestra; Benjamin Richardson, Kepler Swanson, and Andrew Torgelson are the boy sopranos in III, 'Memoire des Ombres', dedicated to "Anne Frank and to all the innocent children of the world (1945- 1995)".
