With musical excerpts from: Debussy: Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, Stravinsky: L’oiseau de feu, Schönberg: Fünf Orchesterstücke op. 16, Debussy: Jeux, Boulez: Notations for piano, Messiaen: Et expecto resurrectionem mortuorum, Takemitsu: Dream / Window, Ravel: Daphnis et Chloé Written and presented by Sir Simon Rattle, the foremost British conductor of our day, this series forms a fascinating introduction to, and overview of, the music of the twentieth century. Each of the seven programmes feature over thirty minutes of specially-shot music in performance, with Rattle conducting the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Volume 3 Painting and poetry developed a more abstract style during the latter part of the 19th century, and music was quick to follow. In Colours, Sir Simon Rattle looks at the shift away from melody towards an emphasis on tone colour or ‘timbre’.
