Hi-Res Onderscheidingen 5 de Diapason - 4F de Télérama
Daniel Barenboim has long held a deep affinity for the epic symphonies of Anton Bruckner, and by recording them with the Berlin Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and the Staatskapelle Berlin, he has demonstrated a profound understanding of the music, comparable in importance to the interpretations of such legends as Günter Wand, Georg Tintner, and Eugen Jochum. This live cycle on Deutsche Grammophon with the Staatskapelle Berlin presents only the nine numbered symphonies, unlike Barenboim's Chicago Symphony set, which included the Symphony in D minor, "Die Nullte," along with the Te Deum, and the Berlin Philharmonic set, which offered the choral work Helgoland. Barenboim has chosen a mix of original versions and revisions, relying for the most part on Leopold Nowak's editions, though the seldom-heard 1878 version of the Symphony No. 3 in D minor appears in the 1950 edition by Fritz Oeser, and the Symphony No. 8 in C minor is the 1939 edition by Robert Haas, not the 1887 original, as listed. These are the finer points which serious Bruckner fans will note, though the popular Symphony No. 4 in E flat major, "Romantic," and the Symphony No. 7 in E major will be quite familiar to many listeners, and the remaining symphonies present no obstacles for appreciation. Bruckner devotees will acquire this set for the sake of completeness, though newcomers to the symphonies should give these inspired readings a try. © TiVo

After establishing a secure reputation as an interpreter of the large-scale symphonies of Anton Bruckner and Gustav Mahler, Yannick Nézet-Séguin turns his attention from late Romanticism to its earlier phase, as represented by the five symphonies of Felix Mendelssohn. Over three successive concerts in February 2016, Nézet-Séguin and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe performed the cycle to critical acclaim in the Grande salle Pierre Boulez of the Philharmonie de Paris. The vibrant sonorities of the orchestra and the hall's resonance are major attractions for this 2017 Deutsche Grammophon release, because Nézet-Séguin is focused on crisp articulation and clean instrumental colors, while the acoustics give the music a luminous sheen without blurring it. This is nowhere more evident than in the purely orchestral works, particularly the underplayed Symphony No. 1 in C minor, the ever-popular Symphony No. 3 in A minor, "Scottish," and the Symphony No. 4 in A major, "Italian," which offer infectious melodies, lively rhythms, and the warm tone colors that Deutsche Grammophon's expert engineering captures so well. The sound quality is less appealing in the choral movements of the Symphony No. 2 in B flat major, "Hymn of Praise," due to the RIAS Kammerchor's hazy blend and Mendelssohn's heavier scoring, which make this quasi-oratorio suffer in comparison with the transparent "Scottish" and "Italian." The Symphony No. 5 in D minor, "Reformation" is perhaps the least compelling, owing to its earnest treatment of Lutheran hymns and the lack of effervescence that made the other orchestral symphonies so delightful, and to which Nézet-Séguin seems more attuned. © TiVo

Hi-Res Booklet
A fantasy that turned into a symphony? First and foremost, this double album enshrines the exemplary work of an ensemble whose designation ‘Baroque Orchestra’ by no means limits its excursions into later repertories: under the watchful eye of a gifted conductor, the ‘Freiburgers’ (and co.) offer us a profoundly renewed vision of the Ninth, that myth among myths, that touchstone of a genre in quest of the absolute – and the direct descendant of a much earlier Choral Fantasy. The latter work showcased one of Beethoven's most extraordinary talents: improvisation. Kristian Bezuidenhout has joined forces again with his concerto partners to let us experience this little-known score as if it had just been premiered ... then transcribed by Beethoven himself! © harmonia mundi

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen Diapason d'or
A few weeks ago BIS label released the last volume of the complete six symphonies of Nielsen by Sakari Oram. In recent attempts, Paavo Järvi, the head of the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, also delves into the world of the powerful, colourful Danish composer, and the fruit of his work thus appears today on the RCA label. The sound of Orth and Udo Rüdiger Wüstendorfer was the first major asset developed by the Estonian conductor, with the quality of definition allowing for greater clarity in the various departments. Multiple details suddenly become perceptible, to the point of changing the perception of the rich and bountiful style coined by Nielsen himself. The direction of Paavo Järvi similarly stresses the inexhaustible inventiveness of the Nielsen’s orchestra, which then becomes a creator at the crossroads of the most diverse aesthetic. The most complex of the series, the 6th symphony is simply amazing. In reality, Paavo Järvi captures all the malicious nature of the work of the Danes, and gives a performance which is both incredible and full of musical relevance, constantly exciting. A great success. © TG / Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen 5 de Diapason
Estonian conductor Paavo Järvi has recorded a lot of Sibelius: there are at least a couple of complete symphony sets as well as single recordings. In general, he has tended toward the abstract, toward the view that Sibelius, despite his adherence to tonality, was essentially a modern composer with a unique conception of form on both the small and large scales. Consider the finale of the Symphony No. 5 in E flat major, Op. 82, with its popular half-note theme of open fifths and sixths. It's been thought to evoke anything from Thor's hammer to swans taking flight, but here the epic quality of the motif is toned down, and what emerges instead is the depth to which the fifths and sixths are all over this finale. Järvi's recordings of all three of the final symphonies are masterful, and the one-movement Symphony No. 7 in C major, Op. 105 unfolds with an organic inevitability that's mysterious and miraculous. Perhaps Järvi's approach is a little less desirable in the Symphony No. 1 in E minor, Op. 39, a genuinely Tchaikovskian work that is a bit drained of sentiment here, or in the Symphony No. 4 in A minor, Op. 63, which lacks the requisite gloom in this darkest of all symphonies. But the Second and Third symphonies have sweeping power, and the Orchestre de Paris is precise and sharp throughout. The Eiffel Tower on the cover does not exactly say Sibelius, but Järvi conducted this orchestra for several years, and it responds to his every wish. Your mileage may vary, for these readings are toward one extreme in the interpretation of Sibelius, but many will find the last three symphonies to be capstones of Järvi's Sibelius career -- unless he returns to Sibelius again. © TiVo

Booklet
Sets of Franz Schubert's complete symphonies fall into two categories, either presenting the Symphonies, Nos. 1-6; the two movements of the Symphony No. 8, "Unfinished"; and the Symphony No. 9, "Great," with or without miscellaneous filler pieces, or, more innovatively, offering all of the above, a reconstruction of the sketches for the Symphony No. 7, and a completion of the last two movements of the "Unfinished." While the latter would be best represented by Neville Marriner's fascinating box set on Philips, which includes even sketches for unnumbered symphonies and a Symphony No. 10, most sets follow the first and simpler layout, without any speculation over what Schubert might have written, and focus instead on the masterworks that are beyond any dispute. Claudio Abbado's set for Deutsche Grammophon basically belongs in the first category, because none of the sketches are bothered with. However, along with its unsurprising choice of the Rosamunde Overture as filler, the orchestrated "Grand Duo" Sonata in C major makes a rare appearance. This work was originally composed for piano duet, but the famous violinist Joseph Joachim arranged it in 1855, and it is the best-known orchestral treatment of this large-scale keyboard work. It has features common to Schubert's symphonic style of his last years and is fairly convincing for its resemblances in lyrical flow to the "Unfinished" and in its expansive framework to the "Great." Abbado's performances with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe are first-rate readings that have fresh touches that keep the listener alert for novelty, and the orchestra plays with spontaneity and warmth. Deutsche Grammophon's reproduction is exceptional, as always. © TiVo
