Here is my review comparing this recording with that of the Boston Baroque Ensemble, conducted by Martin Perlman: In many ways the Boston Baroque recording is flawless. It sounds technically impeccable, well recorded, and restrained. I only wish I had not heard it after hearing the Kammerchor/Hofkapelle Stuttgart recording, conducted by Frieder Bernius. Some may prefer the conservative performance style of the Boston Baroque recording, but I much prefer the more expressive and dramatic style of the Stuttgart ensemble. The latter performance breathes, with every phrase shaped and contoured. Every phrase tells a story, rather than a serial piece of a narrative. The Stuttgart ensemble connects emotionally; the Boston Baroque ensemble is more cerebral, requiring more work of the listener. Both approaches are valid and rewarding; the Stuttgart recording evokes drama, while the Boston recording evokes intellect. The Boston recording requires examination and study to discern the inventive genius of Cherubini, while the Stuttgart performance requires less effort to hear the amazing structural, tonal, and rhythmic surprises which appear with drama and emotion, although never with reckless excess, to my ear. If I had not first heard the Stuttgart ensemble, I would have rated the Boston Baroque recording five stars. Others may disagree. This composition is deep enough to support more than one performance style, without question. Nonetheless, I consider the Stuttgart/Bernius recording brilliant. It is layered and nuanced while at the same time dynamic and often dramatic -- a remarkable balance of technique and passion that sounds unrestrained and readily accessible, yet no doubt the product of remarkable attention to detail and performance discipline. Every time I play this recording I discover something new; it never wears thin. Brilliant is an accolade I seldom use.
