Byzantion
MusicWeb International, July 2013

The two French chamber ensembles Contraste and Initium, one wind-based, one strings, give elegant, expressive readings of some of Koechlin’s most imaginatively scored works. © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review



Don O’Connor
American Record Guide, January 2013

Performances are clean and well phrased, with good sound. The opus number is 221, so it’s one of Koechlin’s last pieces. I found it inspiring to hear that admirable mind steadily at work right to the very end, making sense. © 2013 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide online



Grego Applegate Edwards
Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review, August 2012

Ensemble Initium and Ensemble Contraste share the performance assignments, and both ensembles sparkle with brilliance in realizing the works at hand. The compositions span most of Koechlin’s career…

I have to my knowledge not had the pleasure of hearing any of the works previously. I will be hearing them many times more via this marvelous disk. This would make a great introduction to the composer for those who are not familiar. It is most certainly a welcome addition to any Koechlin enthusiast’s library, or anyone wishing to explore some excellent examples of 20th century French chamber music. © 2012 Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review Read complete review
