CD Reviews

At last a recording of the Popper Requiem
olke | Bainbridge Island, WA USA | 04/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Finaly, a cd recording of one of the best cello ensembles inthe world. The Yale Cellists live up to their reputation in thisrecording. I originally bought this for the Popper Requiem, Op 66. The requiem is not frequently played. About 15 years ago, I asked Yo Yo Ma what his favorite piece was, to which he replied the Popper requiem. The original score for the Requiem is for 3 cellos and piano. This recording has multiple cellos on each part, making the layers more complex in a way suitable to a requiem, more like a choral requiem. The other pieces on this cd are wonderfully arranged. The Vivaldi Four Seasons arrangements are exceptional, as well as the Pachelbel canon. The Joplin tune at the end of the disc gives the cd a little pep, with most of the other pieces being very serious and solemn. This is the perfect cd to entertain guests with, or read the Sunday morning paper to."
