Description: Although this symphony and concerto are on the edge of leaving the "unusual repertoire" niche (at least on disc), the early (1863) suite is still quite unknown. A tribute to the French composers of the 17th and 18 centuries, it is an attractive and instantly appealing act of homage (and the Prelude and Sarabande are almost Brahmsian in their warm pastoralism). Later this year, we are promised D'Indy's long-unknown first symphony from this disc and these performers! Jérôme Pernoo (cello), Orchestre de Bretagne; Nicolas Chalvin.
