CD Reviews

Sparkling performances of two string classics.
Miles D. Moore | Alexandria, VA USA | 09/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's more usual to pair Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings on disc with the Dvorak Serenade. Yuri Bashmet and the Moscow Soloists, however, choose instead to complete their Tchaikovsky Serenade CD with Grieg's Holberg Suite and, for encores, two of Grieg's Norwegian Melodies. Dvorak fans may rebel, but the Tchaikovsky and Grieg, unquestionably among the glories of the string orchestra literature, go extremely well together, and the Moscow Soloists turn in appropriately elegant, graceful performances of these classics. Why RCA Red Seal allowed this disc to go out of print is beyond me; here's hoping they correct that error soon."
