An inward Schumman Concerto, a genial Brahms Serenade 10 July 2007
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Natalia Gutman, although not well known in America, has a distinguished preforming career in Russia and Europe; she used to perform in chamber music with no less than Sviatoslav Richter. Compared to that fiery improvisatory genius, her pairing with Abbado is rather mild but quite self-assured. Gutman doesn't attack the Schumann Cello Concerto with the impassioned fervor of du Pre or Rostropovich. Instead, she uses a steady, full, sweet tone that emphasizes singing and phrasing. One feels drawn into the inward aspect of the cello, its capacity for reflection. (The short slow movement is mesmerizing and touchingly personal.) On those terms, this is quite a masterful performance. DG has caught both soloist and orchestra (reduced to chamber size) in excellent sound.

Abbado made a recording of the youthful Brahms Serenade #1 when he himself was young. My high expectations were a bit dashed by that reading, particularly because of the wiry, thin sonoics. This new version begins much less bumptiously than versions I love from Stokowski (newly reissued on DG) and Haitink (an early Concertgebouw recording on Philips). What Abbado has on his side is fine ensemble playing from the young Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the caramel tones they produce. Every phrase receives its due with loving affection; tempos are relaxed, and the mood is that of a summer evening on the grass.

Because this is a work of symphonic length, I wish Abbado had provided more dramatic contrast, but there's no arguing with his style and assurance. All told, however, I'd place this new recording ahead of versions one sees recommended from Boult, Tilson Thomas, and Slatkin.
