Henri Dutilleux, named the “van Gogh of classical music” (Die Welt), was a maverick, a dreamy and stubborn man searching for his own style between tradition and modernism, oriented toward his great paragons Paul Dukas, Maurice Ravel and Albert Roussel. “I compose colors,” he would always point out, admitting to his great reverence for van Gogh. His colorful music finally found for him much late success, especially the orchestral works. This CD offers the rarely performed First Symphony, two almost unknown orchestral songs set to poems of Jean Cassou and finally the far better known Métaboles.
