Editorial Reviews

An all-star recording gives the rare opportunity to hear these Nielsen concertos on disc. It was always Emmanuel Pahud's dream to record the Nielsen flute concerto, so when it came to the recording, the orchestra had to be the BPO under Rattle of which he is the principal flute. Sabine Meyer, herself also a former member of the BPO and "primadonna assoluta of the clarinet", was the natural choice to partner with him on the disc. Critical acclaim for their previous live performances of Nielsen: "Nielsen triumphs thanks to Sabine Meyer" (Tribune de Gen‚ve), "The flautist Emmanuel Pahud joined Mr. Harding and company for a beautifully shaped and sometimes dramatic performance of the Nielsen Flute Concerto" (New York Times).

I have been waiting a long time for Emmanuel Pahud to come out with this recording. His incredible capabilities on the flute itself give him the freedom to draw so much from any piece he plays, but particularly from Nielsen's Flute Concerto. His performance gives a clear image of the scattered flutist Nielsen wrote about (as each concerto was intended to be a portrait of the musicians of the Copenhagen Wind Quintet during that time). Pahud's playing is impeccable. From fast, crisp, lightly articulated passages to beautifully long, luscious phrases, his interpretation is the most convincing I've heard out of the 7 I own.

Sabine Meyer, another superb musician, plays the Clarinet Concerto with a gorgeous sound and great accuracy. Personally, I'm not the biggest fan of the piece, and I feel the playing sounds almost too contrived, but that could be the intent (as I don't know as much about Nielsen's clarinetist that he wrote it for).

As for the quintet - what an incredible group of musicians! This is another favourite in my books. The group plays together with such ease and all of the voicings are passed around seamlessly. A fine ensemble of musicians playing one of the greatest wind quintets ever written.

No other orchestra can boast such top notch musicians as the Berlin Philharmonic. They have first desk soloists who, on their instrument, can compete with practically any other player of the same instrument. I'm thinking in particular of Emmanuel Pahud, the flute player whose dazzling playing has been wowing audiences since he joined the Berlin Philharmonic in the early 90's. As one of the Berlin Philharmonic's two principal flutists, he's been the head flutist in roughly half of the Berlin Philharmonic records since he joined the band. Here he's been elevated to a place as an actual soloist.

But he's not the only soloist featured on this disc. Also stared is Sabine Mayer, who has won herself a place as one of the greatest clarinetists alive. While she is currently on her own (not a member of the Berlin Phil), she was once in the orchestra for a short period of nine months during the end of the Karajan years. This was back in the years when the Berliners didn't look too favorably on having female members in their orchestra; Karajan thinks this is why the orchestra voted to oust her and not because of anything lacking in her actual playing. Either way, she's turned out to be an astonishing genius, one the Berlin Philharmonic is glad to invite back to record with their own Emmanuel Pahud.

In the flute concerto, Pahud has absolutely nothing holding him back, resulting in playing that is full of deep love on his part. In this two movement work, he uses his flexibility to achieve a wide range of emotion and dynamics. Memorable as the exhilarating virtuosic moments may be, it is Pahud's tender, affectionate phrasing in lyric passages that are the most gripping.

My 5-year-old granddaughter wanted some classical woodwind music to listen to and I picked this collection. I picked Carl Nielsen works because I wasn't familiar with his work and like impressionist-era music. The clarinet and flute concerti and wind quintet are fabulous but may be an acquired taste for some (the jury's still out on whether a 5-year-old can enjoy such complicated, and at times bi-polar, music).
