Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions 5 de Diapason - 5 Sterne Fono Forum Klassik
The Triple Concerto is recorded here in concert, which is sure to guarantee a bit of spontaneity for a work of great symphonic dimensions – 35 minutes long – which owes as much to chamber music as to concert symphonies. There is still the question of whether it's better to call in an established trio for the triple soloist part: Anne Gastinel, Gil Shaham and Nicholas Angelich didn't know each other musically beforehand, and they opted, here again, for spontaneity and stepping out of the routine: which pays off brilliantly, as the orchestra is directed by Paavo Järvi, who can tailor the performances so well. His judicious eye is indispensable to this rather dense work, which tends to move in circles in terms of tonalities. The album closes with the Gassenhauer trio for clarinet (with Andreas Ottensamer), cello and piano (with the same soloists as for the Concerto), recorded in studio. The title Gassenhauer was chosen after the fact, in view of the different themes in the third movement, which came from an opera which was a smash hit in Vienna - and the Viennese slang of the day, a "hit" is called a "Gassenhauer".
