22 of 22 people found the following review helpful By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 14, 2007
This DVD preserves the opening concert of the 2006-2007 season at Carnegie Hall, which took place on October 4, 2006. As 2006 was a 'Mozart Year' -- the 250th anniversary of his birth -- and as Franz Welser-Möst is an Austrian, the program includes, in addition to music of Mozart, music by two other Austrian composers, Franz von Suppé and Johann Strauss II. The concert was to have included orchestral songs of Mahler, another Austrian, sung by Thomas Quasthoff, but a last minute cancellation due to the singer's illness caused a minor crisis. But as it happens a preeminent Mozart singer, soprano Dorothea Röschmann, then currently singing in the Met's production of 'Idomeneo', graciously agreed to step in to sing the Countess's two arias from 'The Marriage of Figaro.'

I had not seen the Cleveland Orchestra for several years and noted how many new relatively young players are in the orchestra, including many of the principals. Still, the orchestra, in its fifth year with Welser-Möst at its helm, maintains the very high standards achieved under the legendary Georg Szell. This orchestra plays like a large chamber ensemble, high praise indeed.

The program opens with an exhilarating performance of von Suppé's 'Light Cavalry Overture'. The brass particularly sound exciting and yet always elegant. The string pianissimi in the overture's second theme gives one goosebumps. A gorgeous performance. This is then followed by one of Mozart's lesser-played concertos, one that is notable for its creative form and lovely themes. In the booklet notes the solo pianist, the magnificent Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, calls this concerto 'a little opera', an apt description.

This Orchestra is superb ... And lead by conductor Pierre Bouletz makes it one of the best combinations I have ever heard... This orchestra really sounds in a different way. There are however few choices of DVDs or Blue Rays with the Cleveland orchestra to choose from the Amazon listing.
