Notes & Reviews:

Paul Dukas is almost entirely known for his popular tone poem 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice.' This work is, of course, included in this release; however, these discs also offer several larger-scale works, including his impressive Symphony in C major and the Overture 'Polyeucte' as well as the delightful ballet 'La Peri.' This bargain two-CD set, which includes the main orchestral and piano masterpieces of Dukas, is an ideal summation of the achievement of this wonderful composer.

I cannot praise Tortelier's mastery here enough
