On August 14, Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony release the second volume of orchestral works of Henri Dutilleux on Seattle Symphony Media.
Part of a three-disc, multi-year recording project, Volume 1 was hailed by The New York Times as a “Gorgeous, authoritative collection” and received three Grammy nominations earlier this year for Best Orchestral Performance, Best Classical Instrumental Solo by Xavier Phillips and Best Engineered Album.
In Volume 2, Morlot and the orchestra continue their distinctive survey of the French composer’s orchestral works, featuring a studio recording of the violin concerto L’arbre des songes ("The Tree of Dreams") with violinist Augustin Hadelich, and electrifying live performances of Symphony No. 2 and Métaboles. The orchestra plans to release Volume 3 during Dutilleux’s 100th anniversary season in 2016.
