Editorial Reviews

Without exception, the first edition of 10 titles in the new RED LINE series is an instant classic of the EMI catalog. The repertoire ranges from Bach to Debussy, Beethoven to Lalo and Mozart to Gershwin. Each CD of this series could stand alone as a milestone of the highest quality interpretation of these timeless classics. Internationally celebrated cellist Jacqueline du Pre comes together with Daniel Barenboim and Gervase de Peyer for one of the best chamber music recordings of Beethoven s Clarinet Trio. The outstanding Andre Previn leads the London Symphony Orchestra in their performances of highlights from Tchaikovskys Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, and Sleeping Beauty. Sir Simon Rattle not only exemplifies the orchestral works of Debussy with the BSO, but shows his versatility with his outstanding leadership of the Londin Sinfonietta s vivacious and jazzy take on Gershwin, Bernstein and Milhaud. Daniel Barenboim appears again, this time breathing life into Bach s extraordinary concerto repertoire while accompanied by the English Chamber Orchestra. The excitement is not limited to the few examples listed above but extends through to all of the newest ten titles from the Red Line series.

Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
The clarinet sonatas and trio here were composed near the end of Brahms' life. He "retired" from composing in 1890, but then heard the superb clarinettist Richard Muhlfeld and was inspired to write these. I have treasured this wonderful recording since I first heard it 30 years ago. A while ago I remastered an old LP and I'm thrilled to see it here as a downloadable mp3.

There is a fine Richard Stoltzman/Richard Goode recording too, but this is the one that I think best captures the deep autumnal beauty of the sonatas.

The warmth and generous rubato in this recording make the Stoltzman/Goode recording sound a little stodgy, a little wooden. There's wonderful interplay between a youthful, ebullient Barenboim and De Peyer, who plays with wonderful restraint -- the piano crashing chords while the clarinet floats ethereally above it.

There is one place where Barenboim, at the time one of the world's great pianists, completely blows a chord. I suppose they left it on the record because the take was so beautifully phrased, if not note-perfect. It's the musical equivalent of a beauty mark on this wonderful recording.

Some people are put off by De Peyer's French technique -- the sound is a little more reedy, thinner and more focused than the darker sound that is more in vogue. It's a relatively subtle difference. The significance of this recording is the lush yet delicate phrasing, which should be an inspiration to anyone who wants to play romantic chamber music.

I was excited about this cd and when it arrived I listened to it right away. What a disappointment. While du Pre was wonderful as always, de Peyer was not up to what I would have expected. His sound was ok overall and musically the performance was pretty good, but he had a tendency to spread whenever the dynamics approached the forte level in both the sonatas and the trio. I would recommend the performance as a good representation of what these pieces should be, but would caution that one should not emmulate de Peyer's sound on this disk. Having heard him live more recently than this recording, he might just agree...
