RAVEL & DUPARC – the second recording from Robin Ticciati and the DSO on Linn Records

Right on time for the beginning of his second season as Music Director of the DSO, a second recording from Robin Ticciati and his orchestra will be released with works by Ravel and Duparc in September 2018. Again they are joined by acclaimed mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kožená. The recording will be released on the Linn Records label.

After last year’s highly praised recording debut focussing on the composers Debussy and Fauré, Robin Ticciati and the DSO will also dedicate themselves to the spirit of French music on their second joint recording – with works by Maurice Ravel and Henri Duparc composed shortly before the First World War. Even before he drove his musical examination of dance to extremes in ‘La valse’, Maurice Ravel honoured the Viennese waltz and Franz Schubert with his ‘Valses nobles et sentimentales’ from 1912 in an ingenious, harmonically multi-layered way. At the same time, the ballet ‘Daphnis et Chloé’ was premiered, a flamboyant pastoral and “broad musical fresco” (Ravel) that particularly won favour in the concert halls in the form of the second suite. Prodigious talent and a tragic fate are intertwined in the legacy of Henri Duparc. With his first songs in the 1870s, the 20-year old created a sensation, but psychological suffering inhibited the creative energy of the highly gifted man, and only a few works bore up under his massive self-criticism. Only later, in the 1910s, did he orchestrate some of his wonderful “Mélodies”, some of which can be heard on this new recording interpreted by Czech mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kožená – ‘L’invitation au voyage’, ‘Chanson triste’, ‘Au pays où se fait la guerre’ and ‘Phidylé’. The graceful, youthful orchestral nocturne ‘Aux étoiles’ also underwent a revision at this time.

With this new release in September 2018, the DSO is continuing its collaboration with Linn Records that was initiated in 2017. With its carefully curated portfolio, the award-winning audiophile label (part of the Outhere Music Group) also offers, besides physical media, high-resolution studio master files for downloading. Other joint productions are already in the pipeline.
