Review: Morlot and the Seattle Symphony present a rediscovery and a première

“When news of the discovery of the Chant funèbre (Funeral Song) reached the classical music world, a near-revolution of excitement took place. Ludovic Morlot’s West Coast première of the Funeral Song with the Seattle Symphony this past weekend was equally exhilarating, especially when programmed with the local première of György Ligeti’s intricately difficult Violin Concerto, performed by award-winning violinist Augustin Hadelich, and Mozart’s sublime Symphony no. 39 in E flat major. All in all, another example of the French maestro’s flair for the uniquely unusual in his programming.”
