While Luciano Berio's landmark Sinfonia is the main attraction of this 2018 release by Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony, the two other works on the program may be viewed as complementary, albeit somewhat anticlimactic, coming as they do after such a powerful opener. The centerpiece of Sinfonia is its famous third movement, "In ruhig fließender Bewegung," a musical collage built on the scherzo from Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2 in C minor, "Resurrection," incorporating quotations from myriad sources, including Maurice Ravel's La Valse and Pierre Boulez's Pli selon pli, among numerous references to composers from Ludwig van Beethoven to Igor Stravinsky. Because it has a prominent place in Berio's palimpsest, programming La Valse is an obvious choice, though the inclusion of Boulez's Notations I-IV, not directly quoted in Sinfonia, is a bit more oblique; listeners may only find in it a tangential connection to the avant-garde chaos of the previous work. Even so, Sinfonia is more than enough to preoccupy listeners, and Morlot leads the orchestra and the vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth in an exciting and sometimes hair-raising version. Because this is a live recording, some of the voices fade in and out in the welter of sound, and details that are easily picked out on a studio recording are harder to discern here. Even so, this fresh performance is required listening for fans of the piece, who will likely find something new with attentive listening.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.
