The orchestral music of Henri Dutilleux is noted for its economy, directness, and exquisite craftsmanship, and the three works on this 2014 Seattle Symphony release support this assessment. The Symphony No. 1 is as compact in its form as a Classical-era symphony and as focused in its dissonant counterpoint as any modernist work, yet it is most enjoyable for its vibrant sonorities, and Dutilleux's masterful orchestration keeps it fully engaging. Tout un monde lointain features a virtuosic part for solo cello, and Dutilleux praised this soloist's interpretation, saying, "Xavier Phillips fully owns this work and evokes the very essence of its title -- all of a distant world." Phillips' impassioned playing carries this music with lofty intent, so it never feels like a mere showpiece, and he gives it a nearly rapturous expression. The Shadows of Time for three children's voices and orchestra is even more ecstatic in its otherworldly dimensions, and the multi-layered scoring yields the most fascinating music of the program. Ludovic Morlot leads the Seattle Symphony in these attractive performances and continues the innovative programming he has pursued since becoming music director of this orchestra in 2011. This stands out as one of the group's best recordings on its own label, and it promises great things to come.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.
