In this unique edition, Deutsche Grammophon and Universal Classics France pay a long awaited tribute to the music of Henri Dutilleux, one of the greatest composers of the 20th century, who died in May 2013 at the age of 97. The number of works by Henri Dutilleux hardly exceeds 30 (with the exception of youth compositions, incidental music and film scores, rejected by the composer himself). The new Henri Dutilleux Edition brings together the majority of his works, drawing from recordings in the Universal catalogue and those of partner labels. Henri Dutilleux’s work is both instinctive and refined. Few musicians have been during their lifetime as much respected and admired alike by music lovers, musicologists, historians and musicians. This outstanding set is a great tribute to an 'unclassifiable' musician and composer, whose music already has a place in history. “With the death of Elliott Carter late last year, Dutilleux represented a generation of musicians with roots almost back into the 19th century; certainly his music can be seen in a direct line from that of his great predecessors Debussy and Ravel.” Gramophone
