CD Reviews

Mismatched style
Patrick Randall | 08/11/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Regardless of what you think of the controversial Schlueter, his unique style is simply not suited to these classical pieces. Schlueter can certainly handle them technically, but his sound is too amorphous and fuzzy for the concertos to sound like the grandiose pieces they are. Even his piccolo playing has this quality. The ornaments also sound out of place, and the trills aren't great. I even noticed a pitch issue here and there. For the Tartini, listen to the Maurice Andre recording. For the others, try Marsalis or Hardenberger."
