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.”

Henri Dutilleux (1916-2013) was the outstanding French composer of recent decades, despite produced barely a dozen major compositions in a six-plus decade career. The Symphony No. 1 is an early work and the composer’s first piece for orchestra. It is in four movements, but these do not all conform to traditional types. Cellist Xavier Phillips' interpretation of Tout un monde lointain was praised by the composer, who remarked, “(he) fully owns this work and evokes the very essence of its title.”
