Music by the marvelous, criminally underrated composer and "Aural Alchemist" Charles Koechlin is always a discovery and invariably. "Koechlin can daub with notes as Seurat daubed with bright pigments on canvas [he] could, whenever he wished, bathe his music in the impressionist glories of Debussy and Ravel or give it the delicacy of Faur√© and then toughen it up with some Roussel-like grinding rhythms." (Robert Reilly) He is an impressionist dreamboat. With a title like The Seven Stars Symphony and following so closely on the heels of the equally enchanting Vers la vo√Ľte √©toil√©e (Toward the Vault of the Stars), you'd think the work was some spectacular colorist bonanza of celestial ambitions. Actually, it's Koechlin's ode to his favorite film stars - but no less bewitching for that.
