Notes & Reviews:
This is hardly the first time that a disc has been devoted to these works (let us recall that La Mer was recorded 80 years ago by Koussevitzky). But when the most highly-ranked conductor in France (along with Boulez) is at the head of the 'Frenchest' of non-French orchestras, the results are an in-depth interpretation, brimming with vigor and showing off the particularly 'fruity' woodwinds to advantage. This disc is also a response to all those who might have thought that Timpani was definitively a label dedicated exclusively to forgotten works.
