Review: Morlot in his element for L’Enfant et les sortilèges

4th June, 2017

“Without a doubt the pièce de résistance of the evening was Ravel’s L’Enfant et les sortilèges. Here, Morlot was in his element, lovingly recreating the score and shepherding the massive assembly of soloists, choruses and orchestra with Gallic panache. Morlot fashioned the magical atmosphere of this symphonic tone poem, in which the composer had no qualms about quoting his own orchestral poème chorégraphique, La Valse, to accompany enchanted creatures dancing, in entrancing ways.”

Review: Ravishing Ravel from Seattle Symphony

4th June, 2017

“Morlot had his players basking in Ravel’s delectable score — one of those miracles of remarkably far-ranging stylistic references that transcends being merely “eclectic.” There were far too many moments of superb musicianship to recount them all in detail.”

Review: An Unusual Night at the Symphony

2nd June, 2017

“The orchestra with its many solos and prominent parts for instruments, gave the singers excellent support. Morlot, himself French and with a clear affinity for French music, gave the whole a memorable presentation. This is a not-to-be-forgotten production.”
