Notes & Reviews:

Stephane Deneve's accounts of Roussel's symphonies have been praised for their 'energy, enthusiasm, and panache' (American Record Guide on No. 2 - 8.570529 - which also gained Gramophone Editor's Choice) and 'electrifying... ravishing...breathtaking' (The Herald on No. 3 - 8.570245). 'Resurrection', Roussel's first orchestral work, is a delicate and mysterious piece inspired by Tolstoy's last novel, while 'Le marchand de sable qui passe' (The Sandman) is a tuneful, colorfully orchestrated suite. His Symphony No. 1 'Poem of the Forest' traces the cycle of seasons from winter to autumn through its four movements.

BBC Music Magazine
The sumptuously beautiful First Symphony is the headline work... Stéphane Denève and the RSNO have already proven themselves to be fine advocates of Roussel's music, and this is no exception, with plenty of colour and panache.

Classic FM Magazine
Denève excels in flagging up Roussel's supple ear for hybrid washes of colour." "... Le poème de la forêt... sounds beautiful to the ear, especially in Stéphane Denève's sensitive but firmly paced interpretation. ,,,Le marchand de sable qui passe... is disarmingly gentle, attractive and easy on the ear. Highly recommended.

Penguin Guide
The most recent digital set on Naxos is, on balance, perhaps the best [Roussel cycle], and is certainly well on its way to being the most comprehensive...The First Symphony is a highly atmospheric, impressionistic piece and, although with no programme, each movement represents a season, starting with Winter.
