Ludovic Morlot, Conductor
Seattle Symphony

“Ludovic Morlot’s luminous conception of Ives’s Second strikes me as a very European take on Ives. I’ve had the slow movement on a loop.”“The Gershwin is suave, the Carter, a Seattle commission not heard until after the composer’s death, episodically, thornily witty.”

David Allen, New York Times, October 2014
