Hidden TreasureNov. 5 2010
James S. Pasto
- Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I came across a reference to this CD while browsing online and managed to get a used copy. It is quite lovely. The Symphony hovers between Franck and Impressionism, but in the latter it is closer to Jean Cras than Debussy or Ravel. Les Chants de la Mer is has echoes of Franck's Psyche and Debussy's La Mer. The Concerto is a bit melancholic but sweet. Anyone who enjoys French orchestral music of the early twentieth century will enjoy this.
