Ludovic Morlot has wasted little time in recording with the Seattle Symphony, following his appointment as music director with a handful of CDs on the orchestra's own label. Recorded in September 2013, the concert performances of Maurice Ravel's Alborada del gracioso, the Pavane pour une infante défunte, and the Rapsodie espagnole are balanced with a June 2013 live recording of Camille Saint-Saëns' Symphony No. 3 in C minor, "Organ," which makes this album an impressive showcase for French music. The Alborada del gracioso is Ravel's spectacular arrangement of the piano piece by the same name (No. 4 of the set entitled Miroirs), and it shows his masterful orchestration as well as his love of Spanish-tinged exoticism. This penchant is displayed more fully in the Rapsodie espagnole, a work in four movements that was Ravel's most ambitious attempt to capture the colors and expressions of Spanish music in his own impressionistic style. The popular Pavane is a graceful and melancholy dance in an antique style, evoking the celebrated portraits of the Infanta Margarita by Velásquez. Saint-Saën's Symphony No. 3 is Romantic work in the Lisztian mold, highlighting the virtuosic abilities of the orchestra and adding the colors of the organ and two pianos to make the work even more dazzling. All of these performance show the Seattle Symphony in fine form, playing with high energy and precision, and the recordings are remarkably rich and vibrant, thanks to the label's expert engineering.

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.

Nino Rota directed by Giuseppe Grazioli

Four years ago, Decca issued the first volume of Nino Rota’s complete orchestral works, directed by Giuseppe Grazioli. Between the recent release of the fifth opus (with La Strada as a main driver) and the preparation for the sixth, we met with the Milanese conductor to learn more about this fascinating, gigantic and essential endeavour.

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.
