Editorial Reviews

Various Artists. Two CD set of title: 20th Century Classics: Henri Dutilleux - Concertos And Orchestral Works (Capucon, Rostropovich). Henri Dutilleux is a hard-working French contemporary composer who emphasizes quality over quantity by ignoring formal structure and writing rock-solid music custom fit to the sizes of specific groups. Dutilleux's independent spirit stands out apart from many of his French peers. His emphasize for instrumental color and sense of spirituality maintains the French modernism which stems from the music of Debussy. Dutilleux is deeply inspired by visual art.

Is Henri Dutilleux the greatest classical composer of the late 20th and early 21st centuries? If such matters were subject to a poll, I suspect he'd get my vote.

Difficult to categorize, the comparatively few works of this French composer draw from several schools of modern music. Yet, at the same time, they seem to pick up where Debussy and Ravel left off. Dutilleux's music is richly sonorous, full of subtle colours and diaphanous textures. But it can also uniquely challenge the ear.

Perhaps an indication of Dutilleux's rising stock is this latest collection of major works, EMI's, which is the third, to my knowledge. The larger and highly polished Chandos collection with Yan Pascal Tortellier is, overall, tough to beat. However, EMI features other great conductors and orchestras, plus a few entries that are, in my view, also tough to beat.

First and foremost is the performance of Tout un monde lointain by cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, supported by Serge Baudo and the Paris Orchestra. Issued previously under EMI's "Great Recordings of the Century", this performance is remarkable for its power and insight. Over five movements, it emerges like a force of nature. While the concerto has been well recorded elsewhere, this version is like none other.

Another standout is The Shadows of Time performance of Michel Plasson and the Toulouse Orchestra. I have heard other recordings of this piece, including a renowned version conducted by Seiji Ozawa (on Erato). However, prior to Plasson, I never fully appreciated the special poetry of this work. The quality of the recording certainly helped.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Henri Dutilleux (b. 1916) has been the elder statesman of French music since Olivier Messiaen's passing (1908-1992). Dutilleux has never been prolific, but the quality of his small body of works is very high. He is a quintessentially French composer, obviously continuing in the vein of Debussy and Ravel with luscious orchestral textures and recurrent nocturnes with gauzy, oblique, fluid, drifting constructions. Dutilleux is a moderate modernist, maintaining continuity with the early 20th century and always maintaining a flowing, lyrical quality, reflecting his mystic vision of nature, even as he moves outside standard tonality.

This 2-disc EMI 20th Century Classics set certainly gives you a lot of music for not much money. And given that Dutilleux has not composed a huge body of work, you're actually getting a substantial chunk of everything he has written, so it makes a great introduction to a fine contemporary composer. However, given the omissions and other problems, it does not serve as The Only Dutilleux You Need, as one might hope.

The real strength of the set is the concertos, which are both among the finest available recordings. This is the original 1974 recording of the cello concerto, "Tout un Monde Lontain" (A Whole World Distant), played by Mstislav Rostropovich, for whom it was written, with Serge Baudo leading the Orchestre de Paris. There have been fine recordings since, but none have definitively surpassed Slava's original. The violin concerto "L'arbre des songes" (Tree of Songs), which was finished in 1985, is here given a terrific performance by Renaud Capucon, with Myung-Whun Chung leading the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France in 2001.

Format: Audio CD
Turning to resources who define the life and works of this strange but gifted composer results in the following statements: 'Henri Dutilleux (born 22 January 1916 in Angers, Maine-et-Loire) is one of the most important French composers of the second half of the 20th century, producing work in the tradition of Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy, and Albert Roussel, but in a style distinctly his own. Although his output is relatively small, its quality and originality have won international acclaim.' It may take just a bit more time and exposure before this composer's idiosyncratic works attract the audience attention they so justly deserve. His primary concern is orchestral color and of that he is a master. This hefty 2 CD recording should be taken piece by piece as the lack of intervals in his pieces does not allow the gestation time in the mind to respond appropriately.

Dutilleux sound best in live performances in concert halls where the visual aspects of his massive orchestral resources play a major role in the appreciation of the spectrum of color and sound he can achieve. In a recent performance a the Los Angeles Philharmonic with Gustavo Dudamel and Leonidas Kavakos performing the 'L'arbre des donges' (the Tree of Dreams) the massive orchestra included a large percussion section including piano, celeste, harp, cimbalom, timpani, bongos, crotales, tubular bells, glockenspiel, suspended small cymbals, vibraphone, snare drum, tam-tams, and tom-toms in addition to the full orchestral complement of strings , woodwinds, brass etc etc. Astonishing to hear, and equally astonishing to experience. By far the most convincing performance on this recording is that of Renaud Capuçon wth the Orchestre Philharmonique De Radio France, Myung-Whun Chung conducting.
