Australian Decca's generous decision to release basically all of conductor Ernest Ansermet's back catalog is a boon for classical collectors. Unfortunately, since this move is coming rather late in the CD era, and the fact that these recordings are being released individually rather than in a large box set, means that many of these reissues replicate previously available material. That is the case for half of the selections on this disc, featuring the works of 20th Century composers Bloch, Oboussier and Gieser. This same Bloch "Schelomo" and "Voice in the Wilderness" are available on Decca Recordings 1950-1956, and the former also on Zara Nelsova Plays. However, the other two works, originally paired on vinyl (as where the Blochs interestingly) are receiving their first release on CD -- Oboussier's "Antigone" and Geiser's Symphony in D minor. With the possible exception of "Schelomo," all of this material is really outside of the standard repertoire, but Ansermet is at home here just as he is with more well known 20th Century works by Stravinsky, Debussy and Ravel. My reason for not awarding a 5th star is a better "20th Century" Ansermet release in my opinion, would have been to include his Honegger 3rd Symphony (see my review of Honegger: Symphonies Nos. 2, 3 & 4 / Martin: In terra pax) and replace it with the Bloch works altogether, as most serious collectors for whom this disc and series are marketed to, probably already own them elsewhere as I do.Read more ›
