Continuing their exploration of 20th century masterpieces, Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony present two scintillating ballets that share an undeniable affinity, Igor Stravinsky's Petrushka and Claude Debussy's La boite à joujoux (The Toy Box). Stravinsky and Debussy were leaders among the modernists based in Paris in the 1910s, and they became friends and mutual admirers of each other's music. Indeed, there are several similarities between these ballets, not least that the principal characters are a marionette in Petrushka and a doll in La boite à joujoux. Debussy was so impressed with Petrushka, which he heard in 1911, that two years later he styled La boite à joujoux after it. Both scores offer extremely colorful and atmospheric orchestration, with a virtuoso piano part as a focal point, and their playful melodies and sophisticated harmonies have much in common. Morlot's conducting is precise, and the orchestra delivers vibrant performances that emphasize the sparkling timbres and buoyant rhythms of both works. Seattle Symphony Media's recording is clear, noiseless, and finely detailed, so every note is perfectly audible, an important consideration with the many dazzling passages in these live performances.

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.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.

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.
