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.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

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.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.
