3.0 out of 5 stars Undernourished March 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD
There's no questioning the musicianship and professionalism on this disc. And the listening public's been done a service as this may be the first (nearly) complete recording of the Journal du Printemps in decades. An awful lot of scholarship and research must have gone into this production: Just a glance at those liner notes will tell you this is no slapdash job.

Seems like the main thing with pre-classical repertoire these days is to avoid the dense, padded sound of the last generation. One need only recall Stokowski's Bach transcriptions. Even the more reduced and modest arrangements of the French Baroque by the likes of Roger Desormiere and Fernand Oubradous sound positively bloated when placed next to contemporary performances on period instruments.

There's a precision and intimacy to Ms. Gaigg's interpretation that commands respect. All the same, her approach may be ill-suited to the material. Olaf Krone's liner notes mention that the Journal du Printemps was written for the court in Baden-Baden, where the francophile margrave sought to imitate the style of absolutist France. At grandiose Versailles, the big egos and big hairdos seem to have inspired a similarly colossal sound. The Sun King's twenty-four violins was just the core of the orchestra; often it was doubled or tripled. And the appetite for Large Music seems not to have diminished after the Grand Monarch's demise: By Rameau's time, one reads of up to three hundred musicians doing the honors.

Wall-to-wall sound normally precludes appreciation of the individual musicians, and it would be a pity to do so given the talent in this ensemble. It's just that this sort of music might be better served with larger forces.
