CD Reviews

One of Chailly's best CDs, in spectacular sound
Santa Fe Listener | Santa Fe, NM USA | 09/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mangred is a major misfire by Tchiakovsky, a stepchild to his six symphonies that feels diffuse and uninvolving. But chailly makes it involving by paying precise attention to every detail of balance and phrasing. This would be too fussy in many other works, but it helps give Manfred moment-to-moment interest. The engineers have helped even more by giving Chailly spectcular sonics that make every bar sound gorgeous.

If you want an exciting Manfred, so for Markevitch, but this is good enough to satisfy anyone who would just like to hear the music done well."
A Solid Manfred Symphony

"The reviewer who called this music "boring" isn't listening hard enough. It's a beautifully intense piece of music that rewards the listener with each listening. Riccardo Chailly isn't really known for his Tchaikovsky interpretations, but this is a great reading with excellent playing from the Royal Concertgebouw and audio quality.

Unfortunately, like many recordings, this one is sadly out-of-print, but if you can find one used and in good shape for a good price, it would be worth it. "Manfred Symphony" is seldom recorded. I own many different versions: Jurowski, Pletnev, Petrenko, Jansons, and Rostropovich. I wish Bernstein had recorded this symphony as he would have really brought it alive, but this is a good performance by any standard and worth acquiring."
