SOMM Recordings’ The deeper the blue… offers an intriguing exploration of colour and timbre in music and a revealing investigation of the connections between four very different composers over a near-100-year period. Taking its title from painter Wassily Kandinsky’s assertion that a deepening colour ultimately ‘turns into silent stillness and becomes white’, the recording illuminates the intimate relationship between student and teacher: Vaughan Williams and Maurice Ravel, Kenneth Hesketh with Henri Dutilleux and the influence on Dutilleux of Ravel.
