Seattle Symphony Releases Vol. 2 of Orchestral Works by Henri Dutilleux

On August 14, Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony release the second volume of orchestral works of Henri Dutilleux on Seattle Symphony Media

Part of a three-disc, multi-year recording project, Volume 1 was hailed by The New York Times as a “Gorgeous, authoritative collection” and received three Grammy nominations earlier this year for Best Orchestral Performance, Best Classical Instrumental Solo by Xavier Phillips and Best Engineered Album. 

In Volume 2, Morlot and the orchestra continue their distinctive survey of the French composer’s orchestral works, featuring a studio recording of the violin concerto L’arbre des songes ("The Tree of Dreams") with violinist Augustin Hadelich, and electrifying live performances of Symphony No. 2 and Métaboles. The orchestra plans to release Volume 3 during Dutilleux’s 100th anniversary season in 2016.

Digital downloads and CDs are available through iTunes and Amazon. Seattle Symphony Media recordings are also available in 96k 24-bit high resolution and 5.1 surround sound formats.
