Format: Audio CD
Those who read my reviews know that I often find Marriner and his band to be less than satisfactory, missing drama and going for music making that is too straightforward. When they're playing composers such as Sibelius, Brahms, or Tchaikovsky they can sound too buttoned up and unable to commit themselves to the inner world of those composers. But no matter what I may find lacking in their performances, I'm also quick to admit that they can produce tender, affectionate sounds that are very charming.

Are there times when daintiness and charm provide exactly what we're looking for and no less? In the case of Victor Herbert, it's an unequivocal yes. An undervalued composer, Herbert's music is tender and personal, not seeking to impress the listener with outward show but rather attempting to warm the heart. Disregarded or no, the cello concerti on this disc are consistently interesting, filled with delightful melodies. In this kind of environment Marriner is more than capable. I couldn't help but smile as I witnessed music making full of vitality and wit. Of course Lynn Harrell only adds to the fun. One of the foremost cellist around, he plays with astonishing technique but also with love. He seems to enjoy the music as much as Marriner does. To my ears Harrell and Marriner share the same artistic vision and it's tough to pin down who's more responsible for the success of this album. But one thing's for sure: both of them know how to surround us with waves of nostalgia, with a tenderness that makes me never want to stop listening. Herbert seems to always be reminiscing his childhood (remember "Babies in Toyland"?) and he does so in such a touching way that all one's troubles are forgotten and for a blissful hour we're innocent children again.

I first heard 5 Pieces for Cello and Strings years ago on Public Radio. Finially found it here and bought it. Sounds as good as I remember.
