Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony have released a string of impressive albums on their home label, Seattle Symphony Media, and most of these recordings have included masterpieces of 20th century music. This 2015 album is devoted to the music of Charles Ives, offering a balanced program of two symphonies and two short orchestral pieces. The challenging Symphony No. 4 is regarded by some as Ives' definitive masterpiece, and despite its massive forces (which make performances infrequent) and the complexity of its polymeters, multiple tempos, and dense textures, it has enjoyed a devoted following since its first complete performance in 1965. In contrast, the Symphony No. 3, "The Camp Meeting" for chamber orchestra represents Ives at his most approachable and direct, and the quotations of hymns and the rustic feeling of the music give this symphony a nostalgic appeal that has endeared it to audiences. Between these symphonies are two of Ives' most enigmatic but popular pieces, The Unanswered Question and Central Park in the Dark, and Morlot and his orchestra give their performances an atmospheric feeling appropriate to their soft dynamics, wispy textures, and haunting orchestral colors.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

The Little Tramp: The Great Composer

As the Paris Philharmonic puts on a major exhibition dedicated entirely to his career, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a look back at Charlie Chaplin’s close ties with music. He may be famous as a legendary performer and director, but the man with the iconic bowler hat and cane also composed the music in his films himself.
