Penguin Guide, January 2009

Koechlin’s lifelong fascination with Kipling’s Jungle Book is reflected in this four-movement tone-poem whose composition extended over several decades. La Course de printemps, Op. 95, the longest of them, is extraordinarily imaginative and pregnant with atmosphere: you can feel the heat and humidity of the rainforest and sense the presence of strange and menacing creatures. La Loi de la jungle is the most static and the least interesting. Leif Segerstam is excellent in this repertoire and with this refined ear for texture distils a heady atmosphere and he is beautifully recorded. Anyone with a feeling for the exotic will respond to this original and fascinating music.
