Editorial Reviews

Review

"In everything, Nézet-Séguin -- who is flashy and hyper-expressive in his gestures -- got a sound I had never quite heard before from the Angelenos. It was lean, sleek, tart in the French manner, yet also very bold and forward. It reminded me of the sound of the Montreal Symphony during the Charles Dutoit era, but with more punch." -- Los Angeles Times

Yannick Nezet Seguin is a rather natural-likely candidate for being nominated, Next Big Thing, when it comes to leading Ravel's orchestral music. He hails from French-Speaking Canada, and has already made a super audio surround sound splash with his Atma disc of Debussy's La Mer, and that rarity work by Canadian composer Pierre Mercure, Kaleidoscope.

My personal listener's bottom line complaint mainly is: I only wish we got the Daphnis et Chloe ballet, whole, in super audio surround. Other than that, I find my positives running contrary to other commentator negatives.

The opening of the second suite from Ravel's complete ballet is properly clean, clear ... and what's more to my ears, fresh and sparkling. Compared to Jun Markl in Lyon on Naxos, Nezet Seguin in Rotterdam is warmer, and to that extent, less fiercely etched than Markl. This suite is vibrant yet modernist - not so much overflowing with sensualist excess as set afire with the very musical intervals which shape a Ravel-ian phrase-texture, seeming to magically catch fire within the phrasings, enhanced by what my ears hear as considerable tonal warmth, balanced just so, coloring the typical fires lit by the band departments etching. Nezet Seguin offers us a reading that is somewhere on the modernist spectrum of expressive manners - as so far suggested by Markl in Lyon and Boulez (New York, or Cleveland, or Berlin). Yes, Nezet Seguin lets his Rotterdam departments loose as the ballet proceedings rev up, nicely.

I have heard these pieces, these old Ravel warhorses for many decades, all of my life, in fact. A local radio station played "la Valse" and it was so staggering I pulled the car over to the curb so I could listen better!

Astounding,

Not only a wonderful performance but spectacular recording quality! Ravel scored subtle interior voices moving sideways or often counter to the main thrust of the melody. Like cross currents running underwater in the ocean. Voices: third violins, soft tympani notes, second bassoon, etc etc Some of these, many of these I'd never heard before , despite owning a half dozen recordings.

I bought it and listened on my high end stereo and it revealed even more. Don't expect to hear this if you listen on an IPOD with earbuds or your computer, or an old stereo. This recording will test the limits of a high end stereo.

I had a cognac and fell asleep listening. The clouds parted, there was a ballroom, women with upswept hair, in impossibly long hooped gowns dancing with men in soldiers uniforms with handlebar mustaches. On one side of the room were the French on the other side were the German officers. they were trying to outswirl and outdance each others, increasingly eccentric circles or dancers. One group challenged the other. A swirl of petticoats and shiny shoes and too toothy grins. Finally a fistfight and the sound of cannon in the distance and the whole scene dissolved into WWI trench warfare. Then it was overtaken by clouds
I woke up.
I could swear I could almost smell the fumes of Ravel's bottle of absinthe.

This is surely one of the best cd's with Ravel's orchestral works that I heard in my life! When I got the cd I was not prepared for this level of playing and so much love in the execution of the orchestra! The recorded sound is clear but never harsh, with a lot of details and much atmosphere.

As people in Europe and certainly in Holland know already for a long time there is one more fabulous orchestra in Holland apart from the Concertgebouw Orchestra and it's beautiful pluche sound: the Rotterdam Philharmonic.
The managing director of the Concertgebouw Orchestra Jan Raes put it like this: "Our sonority is closely associated with the hall: very different than in Rotterdam. If Rotterdam is "energetic" then Amsterdam is more "velvet", "rounded". The orchestra here is more introverted. Rotterdam is sometimes an orchestra of soloists and Amsterdam an orchestra of people working together to find a homogenous sound." (Quote from Musicweb International).

Two worldclass conductors only want to work with the Rotterdam Philharmonic when in Holland: Simon Rattle and Valeri Gergiev. Simon Rattle will do the Rosenkavalier with them next season and did a.o. Pélleas et Melisande, Parsifal and Tristan in the past. Gergiev's relation with them spans more than 20 years and he comes back each season for his own festival.

So, Yannick Nézet-Séguin had a dreamteam to make his first CD for EMI and a fine producer in Michael Fine. Each phrase on this cd is played with so much love and care and (especially in the Daphnis suite) you hear so many things which pass by in other performances!
