Leonard Slatkin is an exceptionally versatile conductor, but it is perhaps in French repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries that he feels most comfortable. The singers in Ravel's exquisitely formed little comic opera L'Heure espagnole, complete with cheating lovers hidden inside grandfather's clocks carried up and down stairs, are all entirely appropriate and admirably clear, but it is really Slatkin who's the star here, right from the "Introduction" that's so artfully linked to what follows. Ravel here cultivates a kind of updated accompanied recitative, well matched to his stated goal of reviving the old tradition of Italian opera buffa.

In 1878 Édouard Lalo wrote to the Spanish violin virtuoso Pablo de Sarasate: ‘Your arrival in my life has been my greatest artistic opportunity… without you, I would have continued to write insignificant odds and ends’. The three works gathered here all spring from this arrival, beginning with the Violin Concerto, composed in 1873. The melodious and charming concerto held a great significance for the composer, who regarded it as his first work truly worthy of the name. In the eye of the public it was soon to be overshadowed, however.

Augustin Hadelich is an Italian violinist. Born to German parents, Hadelich was raised in a musical family with two brothers who played cello and piano, while he took up the violin at age five. Hadelich developed into a prodigy, playing violin and piano and composing as a sideline. Hadelich suffered burns in a fire in 1999, which required treatment in Germany and more than a year of recuperation before he could play the violin again. He then graduated from the Instituto Mascagni in Livorno with honors, and studied with Joel Smirnoff at the Juilliard School, receiving his graduate diploma in 2005 and his artist diploma in 2007.

George Orwell, qui a participé à la guerre civile espagnole en tant que combattant, a écrit en 1942 ces quelques phrases qui annoncent presque mot pour mot le monde fictif de son célèbre roman, 1984, publié en 1949 : " Je me rappelle avoir dit un jour à Arthur Koestler "L histoire s'est arrêtée en 1936", ce à quoi il a immédiatement acquiescé d'un hochement de tête. Nous pensions tous les deux au totalitarisme en général, mais plus particulièrement à la guerre civile espagnole…
