Sometimes amazon can be annoying with their "if you liked.... then you might like..." messages; but, at the price of a cup of nice coffee I decided, on impulse to buy this download. The music is growing on me, it's more reminiscent of Barber, Saint-Saens and Copland than of Bruckner (Magnard was apparently known as the "French Bruckner". The playing and recording is excellent, with the later works more memorable than the earlier. No real hint of Wagner (even if Magnard was christened "Alberic!).
Try it, it's cheap and enjoyable!!
