D'Indy - Orchestral Works – Rumon Gamba, Iceland Symphony Orchestra Vols. 1-3






The zest for new musical discoveries results in unexpected and amazing surprises. Whoever could divine that Vincent d'Indy, an almost forgotten French late 19th century composer somewhere between Wagner and Impressionism, was going to be rediscovered in a successful way, and mainly so by an Icelandic vol2 symphony orchestra under a young enthusiast like Rumon Gamba? There is something to be said for Nordic musicians. The Lahti Symphony, for one, is turning out one incomparable recording after another. Here the Iceland Symphony under Rumon Gamba gives further proof to that conclusion. This is music that runs much deeper than the painted surface, and is being played vol3 with a seriousness that matches the richness of the texture. After all, it is wonderful to hear fresh music of this quality and in very fine sound without having to go back to the two or three all-too-familiar staples. The three volumes are brilliant.
