Label -

George PERLE - Dance Fantasy; Six Bagatelles; Concerto for Cello and Orchestra; Sinfonietta I; A Short Symphony

Ludovic Morlot, Conductor
Jay Campbell, Cello
Seattle Symphony

“Listen, for instance, to the way in which he [Morlot] gives the fifth of the Six Bagatelles (composed in 1965) ample time to breathe; to find and make its own way as it develops… for Morlot and the Orchestra to bring out what is distinctive to Perle yet reflect his homage is a triumph.”

Mark Sealey, Musicweb International, June 2018
“American cellist Jay Campbell is expressive and assured, conductor Ludovic Morlot balances all wonderfully, and the Seattle Symphony shines. The clever Dance Fantasy (1986) rounds off this remarkable disc.”

Roger Knox, The WholeNote, June 2018
