Yannick Nezet-Seguin by Jessica Griffin, Joyce DiDonato by Simon Pauly
Boundless possibilities of orchestral color and harmonic daring connect four composers. Wagner’s ethereal prelude floats in timelessness before building to a powerful crescendo, while Chausson’s two-song collection smolders with harmonies inspired by the German master. The vibrant orchestration used by Respighi to depict landmark locations in the Eternal City resonate in Mason Bates’s irresistibly lively Anthology of Fantastic Zoology. Bates uses technicolor splashes of color with wild sonic and spatial effects to portray sprites, gryphons, sirens, and other extraordinary beasts in a wonderfully surreal showpiece.
