"In the music Roussel composed after 1925 he achieved his ideal of ‘a music willed and realized for its own sake’. An eclectic, he forged a personal, unique style in a modern idiom resting on the foundations of traditional music. Never having wished for disciples, he remained independent and unique." Nicole Labelle in Grove Music Online.
