Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, Netherlands

The present disc mixes various genres. There’s the rampant satin Wagnerian extravagances of the Chausson symphony with its Franckian moments completely assimilated into the whole. This is an earnestly late-romantic symphony to be counted alongside the symphonies of d’Indy and Magnard. The five Faure movements are by contrast tender, cool, elegant; just as romantic as the Chausson but spun with a telling restraint. The famous Sicilienne is taken at just the right pace - thank heavens it is not rushed. After the accessible classicism of Faure in Pelleas et Melisande we are confronted with the ‘modernism’ of Honegger. These pieces were clearly recorded at a different venue or with a radically different sound set-up producing a wonderfully transparent audio image. The Faure and Chausson are fully acceptable but the Honegger tracks sound brilliantly vivid.
