The Gramophone Classical Music Podcast

Jun 11, 2021

For the next album in his universally acclaimed series for Chandos with the Sinfonia of London, John Wilson turns to the music of Henri Dutilleux. He talks to Gramophone's James Jolly about his love of the French composer's music, the art of orchestration and gives a sneak preview of some of the recording projects in the pipeline. His new album couples Kenneth Hesketh's orchestration of three works for solo instrument and piano – the Flute Sonatine, Oboe Sonata and Sarabande et cortège – with Dutilleux's 1953 ballet, written for Roland Petit, Le Loup.
