Robin Ticciati's Les nuits d'été is chosen by Gramophone.
Robin Ticciati Records Duruflé
This week finds conductor Robin Ticciati back in the studio for his fourth recording with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin. Ticciati continues his series of music by French composers (Debussy, Fauré, Ravel, Duparc) with a significant move into choral music: the Duruflé Requiem.
Ticciati is joined by mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kožená, who has performed Debussy’s Ariettes oubliées and Duparc songs on previous DSO recordings, and the Grammy award-winning Rundfunkchor Berlin.
Fittingly the programme also includes Debussy’s Nocturnes, a welcome addition following the critically-acclaimed reception of Ticciati’s recording of La mer.
It will be released later this year.
