Alberic Magnard - Symphony No. 4
Thomas Sanderling/Malmö Symphony Orchestra (BIS)

Magnard is pretty much a new composer to me. Being a French music aficionado, I figured I'd better check him out. This is a lovely, rich late-Romantic symphony that combines the best of Bruckner and Mahler into one. Highly recommended!

Edit: This is now my favorite symphony by a French composer that I have heard. Just unreasonably gorgeous, especially the last few minutes of the finale.
Magnard's 4th is my favorite French symphony ever as well (even above Saint-Saëns' 3rd). I was truly impressed by that robust and noble performance, a real ear-opening rendition.
