Collectors have come to expect topnotch results from conductor, Marek Janowski. This set of the four symphonies by Albert Roussel clearly embodies the conductor’s ethos: thoughtful, unhysterical music making. There is great care exercised regarding tempo relationships, dynamics and most saliently, clarifying complex textures. To be sure, there may be more hard driven accounts of these works, especially #3 and #4, but none more logically worked out. Throughout, the O.P. de Radio France is responsive to Janowski’s ideas. Originally recorded by RCA in 1996, the set is excellently engineered. Packaging and liner notes cannot be faulted.
