Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 30 December 2009
It's very easy to forget Dukas' distinguished place among the French composers of his time (and he didn't help by tending to throw away so much of his output) but the earlyish symphony is a triumphantly enjoyable affair with a Beethovenian rigour. There's nothing vague here. La Peri I have seen described as a bore (probably by the same critic who though L'enfant et les sortileges scored the same way!) but it's a most attractive piece and far from being boring (shades of Balakirev's Tamar but more varied). Everyone knows the Sorcerer, of course, and it comes off just fine. Very good performances and splendid sound makes this CD a real winner. And it's hardly expensive!
