Notes and Editorial Reviews

Approaching Dutilleux is a series of recordings taken from a concert project that took place in London and Cambridge in May 2014. Scheduled on the one-year anniversary of Henri Dutilleux’s death (22 May, 2013), five emerging composers from around the world were commissioned to write pieces inspired and/or informed by Dutilleux’s masterwork Les Citations.

Scored for Oboe, Percussion, Double Bass and Harpsichord, Les Citations (meaning “quotations”) has an array of musical quotations running through it – including Jehan Alain and Benjamin Britten. The resulting piece is constantly asking questions about memory, balance and the relationship of the old to the new.
