Written in the summer of 1910, Symphony No. 10 was Gustav Mahlers final work. At the time of the composers death, the composition was not fully orchestrated, and was unperformable. The version performed here is the Deryck Cooke final version. The Seattle Symphony performs this monumental composition under the baton of Principal Guest Conductor Thomas Dausgaard. On this live performance: It was impossible to be in the house and not realize that something rare and significant had taken place. (The Seattle Times)

Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra summon a magical set of distinctly American impressions. Morlot is a sorcerer with this kind of music, finding balance between the work’s myriad events: ominous strings cast dour moods, while woodwinds interject with unanswered questions.

The viola has long languished in the shadow of its smaller and more popular sibling, the violin. While it has been an essential ensemble and orchestral instrument, the viola has had relatively little music written for it in solo rolesin both the chamber and (especially) concerto genres. But owing largely to the influence of 20th-century English viola virtuoso Lionel Tertis, a number of prominent English composers have been inspired to write new music for this overlooked instrument.

Terry Rileys name will always be associated with his breakthrough work In C, but his influence on modern music has stretched far beyond minimalism. Both of the works on this recording reveal Rileys spirit of exploration and his close collaboration with remarkable musicians. Commissioned by the Nashville Symphony, The Palmian Chord Ryddle is a kind of musical autobiography in which electric violin pioneer Tracy Silvermans one-man string quartet sets the pace for the sparse, translucent orchestration.

Born into a working-class family, George Dyson became one of the most important musicians and composers of his day. The previously unknown Choral Symphony was written as an examination work while Dyson was studying at Oxford, and it was only recently discovered at the Bodleian Library. Dyson relishes his dramatic chosen text from Psalm 107 on the expulsion from and homecoming of the Jews to Israel, a narrative that inspires trademark features that would make his later works so attractive. Its seascape finale links neatly with St Pauls Voyage to Melita, another vivid text from which Technicolor musical images are conjured.

László Lajtha is recognised, along with Bartók, Kodály and Dohnányi, as one of the great Hungarian composers of the first half of the 20th century. He established his reputation as his countrys foremost symphonist but also showed a strong affinity for the stage, writing his one-act ballet Capriccio in 1944. Despite the darkness of the times the ballet is filled with light and set in the period around 1700, the age of Watteau. Taking commedia dellarte as his model, Lajthas characterisation brims with wit and elegance.
