Seattle Symphony’s house label releases its latest recording

By Michael Upchurch/Seattle Times arts writer

In March , when the Seattle Symphony launched its record label, Seattle Symphony Media, with three CDs, SSO executive director Simon Woods promised there’d be more coming soon. A fourth release of orchestral works by Gabriel Fauré was issued last month, and it’s an hour-plus delight of sumptuous melodies and gossamer-fine orchestration. Ludovic Morlot conducts “Masques et bergamasques,” the “Pelléas et Mélisande” suite and four other works. Soloists include principal cellist Efe Baltacigil (“Élégie” for Cello and Orchestra), concertmaster Alexander Velinzon (“Berceuse” for Violin and Orchestra) and former principal flutist Demarre McGill—who shines not just on “Fantaisie” for flute and orchestra, but throughout the recording, delivering some truly sublime passages in “Pelléas et Mélisande.” Available as both download and CD.
