In 2014, the Seattle Symphony and Music Director Ludovic Morlot announced the launch of Seattle Symphony Media, the Symphony’s in-house record label, with its first three recordings.

This disc is dominated by two masterpieces of early 20th century American music, which reflect eclectic influences of jazz club, church hall and military band. Elliott Carter’s last orchestral work and his penultimate composition of any kind, Instances, received its world premiere in February 2013 in Seattle Symphony’s Benaroya Hall. The work was a co-commission by the Seattle Symphony and Tanglewood Music Center and the first live performance of this single-movement piece is featured on this recording. Carter dedicated Instances to Ludovic Morlot, who, in his words, “has performed many of my works so beautifully.” All works on this disc were recorded live. - Seattle Symphony Media
