Although Albéric Magnard's oeuvre is relatively small, the uncompromising perfectionism with which he worked created a catalogue that is filled with expansive, complex and beautifully crafted music. Composed while he was still a student of Vincent d'Indy, the Suite d'orchestre dans le style ancien follows 18th-century models and is simultaneously solemn and joyful in mood, while the Chant funèbre is seen as his first true masterpiece. The importance of justice in Magnard's life is expressed in the Hymne à la justice, while the Hymne à Vénus reflects every aspect of love, from tenderness to elation. This new release continues the Magnard's symphonies recorded by the Freiburg Philharmonic Orchestraunder Fabrice Bollon. The Third and Fourth Symphonies was released in September 2019 (8. 574082), in which ClassicsToday. Com commented: 'Bollon delivers confident, flowing performances that fully encompass the music's wide-ranging expressive vocabulary, from the haunting modal opening of the Third Symphony, to an amazing clean and clear fugal development in the finale of the Fourth. He and the Freiburg orchestral clearly enjoy the rustic charm of the two scherzos, while the profound lyricism of the slow movements emerges naturally and songfully, without dragging. ' The First and Second Symphonies were released on January 2020 (8. 574083).
