This CD is a local Strasbourg, France release on the Valois label of the Strasbourg orchestra led by director Theodor Guschlbauer, containing three orchestral works spanning the career of the French late Romantic composer Vincent d'Indy (1851-1931).

The earliest of the works is "Saugefleurie" from 1884, a narrative symphonic `legend' about a sprite falling in love with a human. It is a pretty but unremarkable work in a style typical for the period. Guschlbauer and his orchestra provide a decent performance, with the capable brass section given prominence in the turbulent middle section.

The work on the CD which I thought the most original and successful was the symphonic poem "Souvenirs" (1906), best translated as "memories". An effective, moving work, it opens with a fifths-chord played by the winds, like the 3rd symphony by D'Indy's pupil Alberic Magnard, the work was very personal one and evokes his love for his wife, who had died recently. D'Indy clearly was devastated by the loss, which he expressed to his friends in letters, and poured his heart into "Souvenirs". Its recurring, plaintive main melody and its contrasting episode, for me represented memories of his past life and present sorrow. This performance by Guschlbauer is pretty good but as an alternative I recommend the outstanding Koch release with James DePriest leading the Monte Carlo orchestra, which is on a different level.

The major work on the disc is D'Indy's 3rd symphony, which he worked on from 1916 to 1918. The symphony is an explicitly programmatic work covering the first World War, with the opening allegro featuring the mobilization and initial action in 1914, including the crucial battle of the Marne.
