I suppose I should be satisfied that this recording is available as an MP3 download. What puzzles me is that a recording of this quality, filling a gap that can only be filled by purchasing multiple discs (by various groups on various labels), should have ever gone out of print. The Swiss label Claves is not big on re-releases. Doesn’t it seem to you that all the major Classical labels – EMI, the Universal group, and Sony/BMG – are surviving solely on the re-releases of major performers? The dedicated collector has these discs in their collection already. Why should I have purchase (even at a discount price) the latest remastering of a classic release in a multi-disc set? I have no room left on my shelves as it is!

It is unfortunate that a composer as talented and important as George Enescu is unappreciated by the recording industry save for numerous versions of the popular Romanian Rhapsody No. 1. And it should be mentioned that more than any other conductor (even Mandeal on Arte Nova), Lawrence Foster has brought to light the symphonies and his opera Oedipe on EMI, the 3 Suites and the Symphonie concertante on Erato (currently available on its bargain label, Apex), and this remarkable recording of the Symphonie de chambre, Dixtuor, and Intermedes pour cordes on Claves, with a rare conviction and insight.

The listener is immediately struck by the discovery that Enescu did indeed change his style with the times. The Symphonie de chambre is tonal but rife with dissonance that perhaps reflects the journey of his life (this 1954 piece was his final work), fraught with pain and despair but hopeful in the last bars. While complex and personal, the music does penetrate the heart even at first listening.
