Product Description

Product Description

Jamie Walton is joined by the Philharmonia Orchestra under the baton of their conductor laureate Vladimir Ashkenazy for this new concerto recording of concertos and orchestral works by Dvorák and Schumann. Jamie Walton has proved himself as a leading light in UK's musical life; as a performer in his widely praised concerto and sonata recordings, and as a festival director in his work as founder of the North York Moors Festival, which was shortlisted for an RPS Award in 2011.

Review

Jamie Walton and Vladimir Ashkenazy are as one. Their tempos are completely convincing and the work unfolds with a seamless flow of creativity that envelops the attentive listener ... The Philharmonia orchestra plays splendidly and the recorded balance is excellent. --Robert Matthew-Walker, International Record Review April 2013

4.0 out of 5 stars Elegance and Refinement 1 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
Walton's performance of the Schumannis lyrically expressive with an elegant refined tone and a lovely singing line. He plays with a warm tone, not too much vibrato, so that the sound is quite slim and clean but very fine. Speeds in the the opening movement are very relaxed with lovely shape to the melodic line. The second movement has a nice feel for rubato and singing of the line, though at times I would have liked the pulse to feel a bit more forward moving; Walton's performance is very meditative and inward. The third movement is nicely lively with some lovely showy cello work from Walton. The orchestra under Ashkenazy is wonderfully discreet in all three movements, elegant and shapely but never overwhelming. All in all a wonderfully elegant, finely crafted performance which sings.

Regarding timings, Walton and Ashkenazy take a minute less than Pierre Fournier on his recording with Charles Munch, though Rostropovich is overall rather faster than Walton and Ashkenazy, with Tortelier's running time on a par with that of Fournier.

We are in somewhat of a different world when we come to Dvorak's Cello Concerto in B minor. This was the last of Dvorak's four concertos, and dates from 1894-5. His first attempt in the concerto form was an unorchestrated cello concerto from 1865, the piano concerto followed in 1876 with the violin concerto in 1880, each one developing somewhat on the next. So that the cello concerto sprang fully formed, and was immediately taken up. It was written whilst Dvorak was in the USA and it was intended for the cellist of the Czech string quartet. But when Dvorak returned to Bohemia he revised the work, adding the extended coda partly in response to the fact that his sister-in-law was extremely ill and he had once been in love with her.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are many fine performances on disc of the Dvorak concerto and a few of the Schumann concerto, but Jamie Walton's new recordings of both on the one disc must rank among the very best. He treats the Schumann almost like a chamber work giving it a lightness and intimacy that bring out the best of this romantic work. His treatment of the Dvorak is more muscular, as befits an instrument that has to match itself against a full orchestral brass section. But great moments of tenderness are also achieved, most sympathetically underpinned by the Philharmonia Orchestra under the ever impressive maestro, Vladimir Ashkenazy. A "must" for any self-respecting classical music collection.
