Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin
Written in response to Fauré’s own Requiem and with Debussy’s influence paramount, Duruflé created one of the most significant sacred works of the twentieth century. Ticciati describes this masterpiece as “a balm for the soul, a score filled with tremendous hope and peaceful searching”. Most typically recorded with organ accompaniment, Ticciati has chosen to record Duruflé’s own orchestrated version which allows the conductor to create a unique blend of choral and orchestral colours recalling the sound-world of Debussy and the Impressionists. Fittingly the programme also includes Debussy’s Nocturnes, a welcome addition following the critically-acclaimed reception of Ticciati’s recording of La Mer.
Robin Ticciati has been Music Director of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin since 2017 and Music Director of the Glyndebourne Festival Opera since 2014. He was Principal Conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra from 2009 to 2018. Guest-conducting highlights include concerts with the Wiener Philharmoniker, the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, the Budapest Festival Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the Staatskapelle Dresden.
For more than 70 years the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin has distinguished itself as one of Germany's leading orchestras. The DSO Berlin is also in demand worldwide with many awardwinning recordings including a 2011 Grammy Award.
