Debussy & Fauré: La Mer / Ariettes Oubliées / Pelléas et Mélisande (CD) – Magdalena Kožená

Conductor: Robin Ticciati
Number of Discs: 1
Label: Linn
CD Release Date: September 22, 2017

To launch their new partnership, Robin Ticciati and the DSO present Debussy’s La Mer, Fauré’s Pelléas et Mélisande, and the premiere recording of composer Brett Dean’s arrangements of Debussy’s Ariettes Oubliées featuring Magdalena Kožená.

Ticciati has conducted La Mer and Pelléas et Mélisande across Europe with the LPO, Concertgebouw Orchestra and the Budapest Festival Orchestra, receiving excellent reviews.

Brett Dean’s orchestration of the Ariettes premiered in Sydney in 2015 and at once displayed Debussy’s music in a new light. The new arrangements expand on the colors heard in Debussy’s original six songs, applying unbelievably delicate orchestration that sounds like gossamer. The Daily Telegraph declared it “a revelation.”

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
