What's not to like?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Henri Dutilleux Retrospective (Audio CD)
I confess it was only the death of Dutilleux earlier in 2013 that prompted me to buy some of his music...and I've realised what a klutz I was not to have listened to him earlier. I find him captivating, particularly in his quiet and lyrical moods. Several times I've caught myself gasping out loud at the beauty of some of the effects he produces. Personal favourites are: Mystere de l'Instant; Metaboles; and the Shadow of Time - but there is plenty else to enjoy besides. This is a great value set with good quality recordings and I'd especially recommend it to anyone who's a bit dubious about modern music - it's a real eye-opener (or do I mean ear-opener)?
