About

Drawing on Ludovic Morlot’s personal relationship with the great French composer, this disc opens with a virtuosic and sensuous performance of Symphony No.1 and closes with a live concert recording of Dutilleux’s late masterpiece, The Shadows of Time.

The disc also includes the cello concerto Tout un monde lointain with French cellist Xavier Phillips, of whom the composer remarked, “[He] fully owns this work and evokes the very essence of its title — all a distant world.”

With naturalistic imaging, depth of field and dynamic range, these recordings have been engineered to audiophile standards and aim to capture as realistically as possible the sound of the orchestra performing on the Benaroya Hall stage.
