Tenor Ian Bostridge joins Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony in an album exploring the music of iconic French composers renowned for their inventive spirit: Berlioz, Ravel and Debussy. Hailed by The Seattle Times for his “warm tone quality and beautiful expression” during the performance of Berlioz’s Les nuits d’été, the live-in-concert track is paired with studio recordings of Ravel’s imaginative Shéhérazade and Debussy’s colorfully rich Le livre de Baudelaire, orchestrated by John Adams.
