By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 13, 2010
Format: Audio CD
I don't know whether to applaud Joanna MacGregor or throw up my hands in horror. She is a superlatively talented musician but she is also a bit quirky for the staid classical music world where she generally resides, and this CD confirms both those assessments. This disc was recorded live at a concert in Buenos Aires in 2007 where she toured with the Britten Sinfonia, a group with whom she has been intimately associated. MacGregor figures in all the tracks here except for the Stravinsky Concerto in D Major -- given a rather rough and ready performance -- and the Golijov piece, both of which are for string orchestra alone.

MacGregor is both the pianist and conductor in the Bach D Minor Concerto, BWV 1052, in a performance that makes Glenn Gould's performance with Leonard Bernstein sound like it was recorded in slow motion. This is without question the fastest Concerto in D Minor I've ever heard. Exciting, yes, satisfying, well not so much. First of all, the piano is recorded WAY too prominently; there are actually moments when one cannot hear the orchestra at all. Further, the recording level is extraordinarily high. As the Concerto is the first track on the CD, when the disc started playing at my usual volume setting I had to leap out of my chair to turn the darn thing down. I wound up decreasing volume by ten whole points on my volume control. Even then the sound is raucous and somehow grating. But, as I said, this is an exciting performance with so much animal energy it's amazingly alive.

But then things begin to get weird.

I must respectfully disagree with Mr. Morrison. The tendency with Bach these days is to take him a bit faster than we might be used to. While I found this objectionable in both the generally superlative Hilary Hahn's D.G. disc, and the equally formidable Julia Fischer's London violin concerto recordings (especially the 2 violin concerto), Macgregor's approach feels perfect to me. I don't care at which tempo Gould took it. For me, he's never been the be all end all with Bach anyway. The other performances and arrangements are just lovely. The sound is quite well-balanced, especially for a love recording (the keyboard doesn't overwhelm the strings). Finally, if the c.d. sees to be mastered at a high volume, it certainly doesn't distort. So, turn your volume control down. What's the big deal?
