Le Roussel Rissole? Really?

How about Roussel le Roi?

Well, we can change yours and get the mods to put this one in,... what do you want to do? I'll gladly change this one to your title. I want to lay the 'sadly neglected' thing to rest, because, I think Roussel has got his proper due, and is as popular as he will ever get,... which suits me fine since I'm in the club. For anyone curious about Roussel, I will send them to the Piano Concerto first.

Things will be what they will be, but I hope we can soon rejoice! :D

No one had mentioned this is the... mm... other Thread:

Clutyens gets high marks around, and this set has an obscure recording of the 2nd Symphony. Has anyone heard this?

This set is a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned. Great stuff.

Symphony No.2 is great with Derveaux(?), it's quite a massive work. 3-4 with Clutyens are also nice and vintage, but, surprisingly I did not find Jarvi diminished. I was all ready to trade him in, but he seems to hold his own. The Chandos sound fits his sumptuousness.

I also pulled out the other EMI disc, but found the Concertino for Cello and Orchestra somewhat slight. Honegger's piece seems to be a perfect distillation of what Roussel might have been going for here.

I still haven't heard Symphony No.1.

For the record, "Rue" and "Roussel" technically don't rhyme, since when both are pronounced correctly in French, the vowel is different. In English we get lazy about it, since most people cannot pronounce the French "u" and only the French "ou", which is identical to the English "u" or "oo". I suppose this is the best we can do for now, though!

Listening to Petre's 'Spider's Banquet'. Is this Wagnerian?

??? No, it doesn't sound Wagnerian to me. Listen to Deneve's recording sometime.

I have most of these recordings on a the Cluytens Artist Profile set and a Japanese issue of Symphonies 3 & 4.  I haven't heard this Symphony 2, but the set is still highly recommendable.

For more out of the way Roussel, the following CD is very nice:



EDIT: those recordings seem to have migrated to this more easily available set:

"Le cas Roussel" is excellent! But the "s" between two vowels should be pronounced "z".
