"Pasdeloup was a great stimulus to French musical life. In creating an orchestra devoted to playing new works, he inspired the writing of symphonic music by composers who might otherwise have ignored this form. His promotion of Classical, German Romantic and French symphonic music contributed to the creation of a new, larger and more diverse musical public. He also wrote music for the voice, for the piano and for orchestra..." Elisabeth Bernard in Grove Music Online.
