The live albums released by Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony typically have appealing programs of showpieces that complement each other in a musical or stylistic sense. In the case of this 2015 CD of Antonín Dvorák's Symphony No. 9 in E minor, "From the New World," and Edgard Varèse's Amériques, the basis for the pairing is the abstract idea of America, rather than any direct musical connection. Dvorák's portrait of the New World is a Romantic evocation of the United States, though this image is filtered through an essentially Bohemian and European outlook, as well as Dvorák's genius. Varèse's modernist work for a massive orchestra casts America (South America, this time) as an exotic and threatening jungle, though he likely intended it to represent the wilderness of the imagination, rather than a specific place. For some listeners, the match-up may seem incongruous, albeit thought-provoking, though the performances are first-rate and the sound quality of this CD is exceptional, a hallmark of the Seattle Symphony's label. Dvorák's extremely popular symphony is sure to invite most listeners, but don't overlook Amériques, one of Varèse's most brilliant and exciting works.

Steve Reich in 10 Works

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.

Orfeo Orchestra: 18th Century French Baroque, Resurrected

Orfeo Orchestra (conducted by György Vashegyi), a prolific performer of French baroque music since its birth, has been honoured in recent years by both Palazetto Bru Zane and the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles (CMBV) with invitations to record a series of explorations of French lyrical music – both baroque and classical.

The British Blues Boom, Chronicle of a Revolution

If Joe Bonamassa has come back with British Blues Explosion, a year after the Rolling Stones’ Blue And Lonesome, it has cemented the fact that the British Blues Boom was more than just a trend. More than a simple musical trend, it was the interest of a younger generation for the great American blues idols that had been ignored in their country, which led to a real revolution, with three major agitators leading the charge, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, considered in the UK as the “Holy Trinity” of rock and guitar. If they were far from being the only musicians involved, it is through their respective careers that we have discovered that blues, far from being an outdated musical genre, is some kind of getaway to other musical areas and has allowed for endless innovations.
