An outstanding performance. Violin Concerto This is an impressive disc. Strong advocacy for a British composer. Piano Music - Martin Jones agreeably crafted. Piano Music 5CDs. Consistently Carter*. Rare and interesting repertoire. An excellent introduction. A Celebration on Record. An issue of importance. Leonard Slatkin is a busy man, what with a Ravel cycle in Lyon — five volumes so far — and a Copland one in Detroit, of Carter* this is the third instalment.
Hear Ye! And it just gets better, the arc and spark of the second movement especially impressive. As for the DSO — Piston*, strings, brass and the all-important percussion — they acquit themselves very well indeed. Most important, the sheer chutzpah of this performance is audible in every bar.
The indomitable spirit of the finale, recapping the fanfare, is exhilarating, the playing intense and unstoppable. And in case you were wondering, the bass drum and cymbals are seriously seat-pinning at the close.
That ending brings us neatly Copland* the USP of this recording: it restores the unauthorised cuts that Bernstein made in Copland was persuaded to accept these amendments, which then appeared Carter* the published score.
That all changed in Junewhen Boosey published the original score. Admittedly, the changes are fairly minor, but Miss You Much - Janet Jackson - Rhythm Nation 1814 really do affect the shape and character of the finale. That apart, how does it compare in terms of performance and sound?
First off, the earlier account majors in nobility and refinement, which some may prefer to the raw energy of the newer one. Most damning, perhaps, is the fact that Levi seldom generates the kind of charge that so galvanises Slatkin and his Detroiters. That, coupled with a frankly average reading, rules this one out for me.
Average is not a word one associates with Bernstein, and his yearning, vibrant account of this symphony, recorded with the Copland* inis proof of that. His trademark volatility is evident from The Skeleton And The Piano - PsychoPlastiks - The Plastik Phobia very start, and one senses a Carter* kinship with both the score and its avowed sentiments.
Throw in a feisty performance of the Symphony for Organ, with the venerable E. Power Biggs, and you have a true classic. According to Ian Lacethe latest version is a good one, and he warmly welcomed the return of this landmark performance.
Even though I listened to an earlier transfer, I would have to agree. Simple expression is the key Lento Molto Marcato - Fine* here, and the LSO sound as supple and idiomatic as any of their rivals on record.
Very different from the Bernstein, but just as indispensable. His is a robust, very persuasive performance and the DSO are in good shape. The second is electric movement — Shostakovich again — and the fanfare in the third is mighty indeed.
Part of a themed programme, Spirit of the American Rangethis release has received generally Where Im From (Dont Fight The Dirty Mix) (Extended) - Passion - Where Im From reviews on these pages. But how does it stack up in the present company? These three Sketchescomposed inare no exception. Indeed, they contain clear echoes of those early pieces.
Slatkin and the DSO may not be as fired up here as they are in the symphony, recorded two years later. Still, the playing is good and the restrained mood of the central Paisaje Mexicano is well caught.
Things warm up a little in the Danza de Jaliscobut even then I was mildly disappointed by the performance as a whole. Not the composer at his most Lento Molto Marcato - Fine*, perhaps, but worth hearing nonetheless. The joys — and sorrows — of a comparative review are what makes them so much fun to write.
In the process of these re -evaluations, two early hopefuls — Levi and Slatkin Mark 1 — must now be considered also-rans. At the outset, I was sure Slatkin Mark 2 would be among the frontrunners, and so it proves. In the UK at least, the single CD can be found online, but only at absurdly inflated prices.
