Notes & Reviews:

Hänssler presents the latest release in the acclaimed series of Charles Koechlin's orchestral works. Koechlin is considered one of the most prominent 20th century French composers, yet there has not been a comprehensive examination of his works until now. This release features three world premiere recordings, including arrangements of works by Gabriel Faure, Franz Schubert and Emmanuel Chabrier.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Overall, this is an interesting entry in HSnssler's documentation of the work of one of the most fascinating minds in music.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2012
The performances by the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra are beautifully poised and refined, with an audible relish for Koechlin's instrumental magic.

International Record Review, June 2012
Those who regards Koechlin as purveyor of the complex and ambitious are in for a treat.
