4.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Reading 9 Aug 2009
By B. R. Merrick - Published on
Verified Purchase
d'Indy is a French composer solidly in the tradition of the finest late-Romantic Germans. These pieces are absolutely beautiful. The Luxembourg Philharmonic under Krivine is very good, and I have no complaints about the technical aspects, either.

One minor complaint is use of vibrato in certain French Horn solos, which, if you've read any of my other reviews, is something I don't care for. If that doesn't trouble you, it won't matter. If you feel as I do, you'll be comforted to know that it is very infrequent.

Other than that, it seems to me that something more could have been done with the overall performance. It's just fine if you're not familiar with these pieces, but I can imagine that in the future, I'll be looking for a recording of these works that gives just a bit more attention to subtlety and detail, as well as more dynamic contrast. These negative observations are trivial, however. This is a good recording to own.
5.0 out of 5 stars LE MAITRE D'INDY--HOMAGE IS DUE 6 Jan 2014
By Cody Robert at Spokane - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Our French allies across the pond must be appalled at the criminal neglect those boorish American recording companies have shown toward one of their most celebrated cultural heroes, Vincent d'Indy. He was an important and extremely influential pedagogue, yet his varied and inventive composition catalogue has never quite caught on here as it should. Monteux was long an advocate of the luxurious and structurally ambitious ISTAR Variations (which look back to the Franck Symphony and way ahead to the film MEMENTO), included here in excellent modern sound. Would that Charles Dutoit had given us more d'Indy than just the generally admirable SYMPHONY ON A FRENCH MOUNTAIN AIR (Decca, 1991).

This release, then, filled a serious gap: the requisite ISTAR logically coupled with the more unfamiliar POEME and DIPTYQUE. The cover art, incidentally, tells the whole story and quite seductively illustrates the music you're about to hear. Krivine conducts with discreet idiomatic reticence, suggesting that he's listened well to his Monteux. Before it disappears entirely, snap this one up to fill out your French Modernist carte du jour.
