Product Description

The latest release from the Seattle Symphony's Grammy-nominated label is a provocative coupling of two great works by European composers reflecting their response to the vibrant culture of the New World. Varèse's Amériques, written only 30 years after Dvorák's beloved New World Symphony, is a pivotal masterpiece that changed the course of music forever. In live performances of electrifying energy and recorded in stunning sound, this is a mind-bending combination of masterpieces that is not to be missed.

Review

" This recording bursts with terrific playing - listen to that tremendous brass! Those urgent, razor-sharp strings! And it serves as proof of the Seattle Symphony's triumphant claim, under the leadership of Ludovic Morlot, as one of the truly great American orchestras. Beautifully engineered, too."
--Anastasia Tsioulcas, NPR, June 2015

"...Dvorák's Symphony No. 9, "From the New World," is a staple, but this excellent rendition, with standout contributions by Seattle's powerhouse brass and razor-sharp strings, demands us to listen anew..." --T.H., NPR Music, December 17, 2015

Format: Audio CD
The Seattle Symphony’s house label is one of the best; they’re pretty much batting 1.000 with their releases since Seattle Symphony Media was launched in the spring of 2014. This welcome new disc provides more of the same: sparkling orchestral playing under the inspired direction of Music Director Ludovic Morlot, with high production values and an appealing package. I love the juxtaposition of the great modernist work Ameriques and a towering work of the previous generation, Dvorak’s powerful 9th Symphony. Both are presented as dramas of exploration and discovery of a new world, and each work illuminates the other. Bravo!
