4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Pathetique, but Could of Been Better April 17, 2014
Format:Audio CD
04-17-2014 Written in 1870, the verture Romeo and Juliet runs 20:18 and under Jarvi, one can really hear the sword play, but it is anything but play, as Tybalt seems determined to slay the fun-loving and very less than seriousd character in the play, Merfcutio, a name quite appropoe to his nature, Mercurial. He is Romeo's best friend and this "fight" isd supposed to be mere jousting, which the overly tense Tybalt refuses to accept. h e believes Mecutio is mocking him, which hw is, but that behavior doesn't support the deadly intent of the enraged Tybalt.
m As for the Z"love theme," I have always fet it a little weak, lacking that guteral passion that Tchaikovsky was certainly capable of producingDespited their youth, Juliet is supposed to be about 13, as marraiges were arranged in thosew days with girlsa that young, they azre very passionate in their dialogues in the Shakespeare play, hence, the music seems to trail the story line and the character portrayals.
Jarvi does what he canin this music, but but he refuses to misrepresent the lovers asd grown adults. madly in love with one another, and he sticks to Tchaikovsky's original sceme, with the "star-crossed" lovers being young and essentially very innocent. Where Jarvi really shines is in the "fight music" with his crisp attacks, which are biting and even scarey. The Cincy ensemble plays with excitement and commitment.
By the time we reach the climax, the funeral marchis stately, poignant and tragic. The CSO's winds and brass are well balanced and blended, but the SA sound doesn't really add much to the already fine Telarc sound. Their daily, run-of-the-mill sonicsStill, the TelaRC SOUND IS VERY FINE AND WHAT WE HAVE COME TO EXSPECT FROM THAT NOW, DEFUNCT COMPANY.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tchaikovsky done marvelously October 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD expecting decent playing, but not anything outstanding. Well, I got outstanding playing anyway. Jarvi gives us deep, emotional music, but he has not given place to hysteria like so many Tchaikovsky conductors. (Leonard Bernstein's DDD recording with the New York Philharmonic {Tchaikovsky: Symphony No.6 (Pathétique)} is a great example of a "Pathetique" performance that resorts to hysteria.) Here Jarvi pulls wonderful detail and sentiment from Cincinnati, but without the slightest exaggeration. The wonderful music of Tchaikovsky speaks for itself.

Paavo Jarvi leads Cincinnati in a riveting account of the ever-popular Romeo and Juliet Overture. The "love theme" is deeply moving; Cincinnati pulls out wonderful color and detail. This is not to mention the spellbinding account of the opening music - the "Friar Lawrence theme". Especially impressive are the last closing moments. After a moving rendition of the "love theme" (in B), we are thrust into a brilliant, free-for-all conclusion.

The "Pathetique" symphony is a piece full of emotion - it's so obvious that hardly anyone needs to be told. Interpreters have a decision to make. Either the music can be exaggerated and given a high dosage of sentimentality, or the interpreter can let the music speak for itself, pulling out the melodies in a hopefully dramatic way without crossing into sentimentality. (Yes I know, the lines can get a bit fuzzy.) Jarvi has very clearly chosen the second path. The music shines with wonderful passion and melancholy, but the listener never feels that Jarvi is being aggressive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Järvi/Cincinnati; Tchaikovsky - "Pathétique" July 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a breathtaking recording (listen to the solo Bassoon in the first movement, where, when called for by the score, you can hear an unbelievably soft and quiet 7 point piano - i.e., ppppppp!!!) of a wonderful performance.
