'J.-M. Nectoux's [book] on Faure is as much literary as theoretical and, in spite of the enormous fund of information it contains, is more reflective than didactic. It is a superb demonstration of the possibilities of creative criticism.' L'Avant-Scene Opera '... marks a new stage in the understanding and "discovery" of this body of work.' Monde de la Musique
