Hiroshima & Odori
[SACD Hybrid Stereo]
The third volume in Dutton Epoch's exploration of Widor's orchestral music will delight and surprise in equal measure. Conductor Martin Yates writes: The recordings of the orchestral works of Widor came about simply because I could not believe that the composer who we all knew through his Organ Symphonies had written nothing else of value. I soon discovered there was a considerable amount of orchestral music and that some of it, La Nuit de Walpurgis for instance, had been celebrated during Widor's lifetime. In addition to that evocative and gripping score, here we feature the delightful First Symphony and the unknown Violin Concerto, the latter in a superb performance by the brilliant Russian soloist Sergey Levitin.
