Album Notes
Manhattan Chamber Orchestra
conducted by Richard Auldon Clark

Music composed by Patrick Soluri

Though based on my own personal remembrances, and the time I spent caring for an aging parent, this ballet, WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT MOTHER? is not strictly autobiographical. These characters are based on many people, all struggling with one of the major issues of our time. Adult Care is a topic that our elected officials never seem to get around to addressing. I hope to open a dialogue! Thank you to my mother, Elvira Rosa Philomena Recupido Patrelle, for 12 years of Joy, Love, Friendship, Support, Memories, and yes, even Heartbreak. WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT MOTHER? is dedicated to Amy Bermant Adler and the Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation. Their support and generosity in underwriting the score made this ballet happen! ("Mother" notes by Francis Patrelle)

"WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT MOTHER?" was commissioned in 2006 by Dances Patrelle with the World Premiere on March 23, 2007 in New York City featuring JENIFER RINGER (Principal, New York City Ballet) & STEPHEN HANNA (Principal, New York City Ballet).

Special Guests in “Jazz Ballad:” Tromobone Soloist: J. Walter Hawkes and Drums: Tony Jefferson

PROGRAM NOTES: MADAME X (tracks 12-16)
MADAME X is about a legendary scandal, a major American Artist, and the painting that rocked Belle Epoque society. John Singer Sargent's famed paintings, "Madame X" (Madame Virginie Gautreau) and "Doctor Samuel Jean Pozzi at Home" were the inspiration for Francis Patrelle's ballet. The bold pose, illicit glance, and bare shoulder of the title figure - making a public spectacle of what had formerly been a private and torrid love-affair - so shocked Parisian society that Sargent was forced to repaint part of the portrait and Virginie Gautreau, MADAME X, the most famous socialite of her era, went into seclusion for most of the rest of her life.

MADAME X was commissioned in 1998 by Dances Patrelle. The World Premiere was April 8, 1999 in New York City; the ballet was revived in 2004 for Dances Patrelle’s 15th Anniversary. The 2004 cast included SANDRA BROWN (Soloist, American Ballet Theater) as Madame X and MARCELO GOMES (Principal, American Ballet Theater) as Dr. Pozzi.

Recording Engineer - Joe Castellon. Recorded at Kaufman Astoria Studios. Edited, Mixed & Co-Produced by Richard Martinez. Mastering Engineer - Andreas Meyer.
