Recorded live in Grieghallen on Thursday 21 Feburary 2019.

Henri Dutilleux continued the tradition of Debussy and Ravel deep into the twentieth century with music that married uncompromising modernity to striking beauty. He based his violin concerto on the processes of continuous growth and renewal seen in trees, choosing the title L’arbre des songes to reflect it.
