June 3, 8pm: A New CD Release
When you listen to the music of Dvořák and Varèse, it’s hard to believe they were contemporaries. Dvořák reminisced on the Romantic era, while Varèse experimented with modernism and electronic sounds. Get an exclusive sneak peek of the Seattle Symphony’s latest recording, featuring these two composers. Ludovic Morlot and Simon Woods talk more about what you’ll expect to hear and why they’re so excited about the release.
