Editorial Reviews

Under the direction of Sascha Goetzel, the Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra has built a formidable reputation as one of the most creative and exciting orchestras in Europe. The group's first two CDs for Onyx were extremely well received by critics around the world. Since it was founded, the orchestra has worked to become a showcase for music from different traditions. This new recording explores the eastern musical roots of Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, identifying elements from the eastern side of the Bosphorus which have impinged on the Western cultural background of these composers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Triumph! September 4, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Brilliantly recorded, making available inner orchestral passages that are usually passed over due to orchestral boredom with this warhorse. Interesting passages on Middle Eastern instruments, but they're so short that they're alone not worth buying the record for. Very lovely additions of other works. All in all, a triumph. This orchestra and conductor clearly loves and cares about this music.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Recording of "Orientalism" August 17, 2014
Format:Audio CD
This is a very interesting recording, and by and large very well done. I'd heard of the orchestra, but not the conductor (OK, call me a Philistine), but he's apparently an up-and-coming conductor from Vienna, and he conducts the title piece wonderfully. Most intriguing, however, is that interspersed with the title piece are short interludes on Middle Eastern instruments that create a suitable atmosphere. It's an interesting take on a war horse, and it works.

The other pieces vary in quality, but they create a consistent atmosphere of what used to be called (and perhaps still is) orientalism - playing on western fantasies of a lush, seductive, and exotic Middle East. The orchestra and conductor all do well, and I'd like to hear them in something else to judge whether it's the playing or the theme that I found so appealing.
