Henri Dutilleux (b. 1916) has been the elder statesman of French music since Olivier Messiaen's passing (1908-1992). Dutilleux has never been prolific, but the quality of his small body of works is very high. He is a quintessentially French composer, obviously continuing in the vein of Debussy and Ravel with luscious orchestral textures and recurrent nocturnes with gauzy, oblique, fluid, drifting constructions. Dutilleux is a moderate modernist, maintaining continuity with the early 20th century and always maintaining a flowing, lyrical quality, reflecting his mystic vision of nature, even as he moves outside standard tonality.

There are two cyles of Dutilleux's orchestral music, the first from the 1990s on Chandos, with Yan Pascal Tortelier leading the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, and this one recorded in 2000, 2001 and 2004 with Hans Graf leading the Bordeaux Aquitaine National Orchestra -- a French conductor leading an English orchestra, and an Austrian conductor leading a French orchestra.

Graf's Dutilleux is excellent, and quite competitive with Tortelier. Graf enjoyed a close relationship with the composer as he recorded these works, which are sharper, more detailed and Boulezian than Tortelier's, while Tortelier's readings are smoother, deeper, and more mysterious. Neither has a world-class orchestra at his command, but both produce fine recordings that complement one another. As Stravinsky said, a score will allow for more than one interpretation.

I concur completely with the other reviewer here; these are the recordings to have of these profound and vital works by one of the most brilliant of contemporary composers. I have the Rostropovich "Tout un monde...", but this is more than just competetive; and the Chandos collection with Tortelier is great, but it's also expensive, whereas I bought these three discs for less than 20$. Indeed, I chose these to download to my phone over the Chandos for listening out of the house. The sound is clear and impactful bringing out details beautifully. The orchestra can be a little rough around the edges but in performances as insightful and forceful as these, who cares? A tour de force for Arte Nova Classics.
