I thoroughly enjoyed this CD, particularly for the Tchaikovsky. It's one of those really lovable works which, however, goes on a bit - Tchaikovsky in prolix vein, but with lyrical beauty, drive and energy. It needs to be played with commitment, and that's exactly what happens here. Listen to the grinding, inexorable pulse in the agitated sections of the third movement, and the power in the lower instruments, or the full-throated cantabile in the second movement, or indeed any one of many other moments. A performance like this live would have me out of my seat. The Dvorak, in a gentler, quieter way, is just as idiomatic and just as effective. The CD is distinguished by the presence of Sarah Chang. This is not the only CD of chamber music she has made - it's nice to see charismatic soloists choosing to play as primus inter pares in works which are less glitzy but no less musically satisfying than the big concerti, just as Heifetz, David Oistrakh, Menuhin and other wonderful names from the past used to do. She plays with poise and assurance, quite beautifully. It's a fine CD and can be recommended heartily.
