Camille has to be one of the Great French Composers of the last century and from what I've read, he admired Mozart. With that admiration, Camille's composition style is definitely Romantic Period, but with lively melodies reminiscent of Mendelssohn and Mozart. He is completely underrated and underplayed. I find him very excellent and maybe some of the best music in the Romantic Period. Everything here is so well written. From the Symphonies, Violin Concertos, to the Piano Concertos it's "Over The Top". If you ask me, that is the way everything in the Romantic period should be written. I especially love the Violin Concertos and other pieces. They are Bombastic! They are filled with Drama and Raw Power! They sound much better dialed way-up and the ending of the 1st movement of the 2nd VC is possibly the best I've ever heard. Once you listen to this Box-Set you will understand.
