Henri Dutilleux’s perfectionism resulted in a distinctive and individual musical
language of rare poetry and invention. The interplay of stereophonic and
polyrhythmic effects and jazzy brass writing in Symphony No. 2 ‘Le Double’
forms, in the composer’s own words, ‘a musical play of mirrors and of contrasting
colours’, while Timbres, espaces, mouvement is Dutilleux’s response to Vincent
van Gogh’s Starry Night, a ‘longing for the infinity of nature’. The series of
snapshots in Mystère de l’instant evokes fleeting and almost magical moments
in time, its cumulative power indicative of a consummate composer at the height
of his powers.
This is the first of four recordings planned for release
on the Naxos label in 2017 conducted by Darrell Ang.
These future albums will include works by Smetana,
Offenbach and Pierné.
