5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Beautiful! July 3, 2010

I ordered this recording because of the unusual tempo of the 1812 heard on a classical radio station, but found the whole CD most enjoyable with the exception of the cello accompaniment. I just don't care for her style. She's an excellent cellist and musician; I simply prefer a different sound. The beauty of these pieces are the slow tempos. In fact, the violins seem to have a hard time putting on the brakes a couple of times. For the first time I didn't feel "pushed" by the orchestra on these selections. The slow tempos allowed the music to speak for itself--very different and very pleasant! There are several really good 1812's with the old Mercury recording having the best cannon ever, but I think I would play this one over all the others just because it is relaxing and beautiful even though it has some of the most passionate music in the classical repertoire. The sound is also excellent with very good mic placement, especially in the percussion and low string sections.

3.0 out of 5 stars Glad He Has Picked Up The Baton September 11, 2009
This is a very entertaining Tchaikovsky "Pops" sort of program.
Domingo has clearly thought hard about these works and despite its "Pops" nature,
this is very well conducted.
The orchestral detailing is beautifully realized.
The performance of the 1812 OVERTURE is one of the slowest I have ever heard, but it somehow seems to "move" along well enough.
Domingo also sings Lensky's aria and a schmaltzy version of "None But The Lonely Heart" with the cellist Ofra Harnoy. The much underrated Randall Behr takes over podium duties for these two numbers, and they are superbly well sung.
The sound recording is excellent.
