Roussel Symphony 4

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Following a period of soul-searching during the mid-1920s, and as his music gained success outside France during the 1930s, Albert Roussel took the rhythmic dynamism, thematic integration and formal lucidity of his Third Symphony (8.570245) to new heights with his less well-known Fourth, notable for its intensely wrought slow movement.

The pungent Sinfonietta, the Flemish Rhapsody, which draws on popular songs of the Belgian provinces, the picturesque Petite Suite and the exquisite Concerto for small orchestra showcase the composer's colourful orchestration and fastidious craftsmanship.

Deneve conducts the RSNO through both, shaping the story with a sensuous arm, freeing the dances and seeking out the nuances in Roussel's rich instrumentation... This is a thrilling reminder of an under-performed composer. Classic FM on Roussel: Bacchus et Ariane
