Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Stephen Gunzenhauser and the Slovak State Philharmonic Orchestra used to be staple fare in the romantic repertoire for Naxos and Marco Polo back in the early days. What strikes one when listening to these discs is that Gunzenhauser is a really fine conductor - his ideas are good, and his overall conception of the music often deeply compelling and convincing. The Slovak State Philharmonic Orchestra was (probably is) a fine band as well, though of course given insufficient preparation time the end results would often be variable; the performances would tend to be rough and the textures a little muddy. Now, when Marco Polo released their series of the symphonies of Anton Rubinstein, they generally employed the Czecho-Slovak State Philharmonic Orchestra under Stankovsky, and the results range from the acceptable to the bad - but the second symphony ("Ocean") was apparently issued separately with the Slovak State Philharmonic and Gunzenhauser, and the results are, frankly, in a completely different league. Yes, there are rough passages and murky textures, some cases of questionable intonation, and not all of the effects (shimmering, glittering oceanscapes; brilliant, playful ripples; thunderous billows) are perfectly realized, but overall this is very convincing playing, generally much better than in the rest of the series and much more than merely serviceable.

As for the work itself, it is probably one of Rubinstein's more inspired scores. Rubinstein, by the way, remains a curious composer.
