DUTILLEUX, H.: Symphony No. 1 / Métaboles / Les Citations (Ciabaud, Tomczak-Feltrin, Petit, Robine, Lille National Orchestra, J.-C. Casadesus)

A fiercely independent composer, Henri Dutilleux wrote music that is refined, colourful and scrupulously crafted. Symphony No. 1, his first purely orchestral score, established his international reputation. Structurally unconventional—it opens, unusually, with a passacaglia—it illustrates his principle of ‘progressive growth’ through its sustained lyricism and towering, chorale-like statements. Métaboles was inspired by the virtuosity of the woodwind section of George Szell’s Cleveland Orchestra. Distinctive instrumentation for each movement allows for deep expression, jazzy rhythms and moments of irony. The enigmatic diptych Les Citations quotes from fellow composers Benjamin Britten and Jehan Alain.
