3.0 out of 5 stars fair introduction to these 20th Cello works 30 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
a recent aquisition on amazon as i'm ever curious to hear + learn new and unusual works. Tatjana Vassilijeva comes according to the cd biog as a competition winner of several cello competition since 1999 + here is teamed up with Yumiko Urabe on piano except for the solo Dutilleux pieces, in an interesting programme of Stravinsky, Britten, Dutilleux + Debussy.

the neo-classical Stravinsky work will win most fans quickest i suspect with its easy sprightly writing in a wholly approachable work. perhaps the best played performance by Vassiljeva + Urabe with the best interplay between the two . i bought this cd primarily for the Britten cello sonata (a personal favourite of mine) + to hear the rare Dutilleux "3 strophes sur le nom de Paul Sacher". both are powerful, terse, late 20th C pieces that although fairly austere + demanding at first - are fine works that use the composers own inimitable voices. the final work - the late Debussy cello sonata is, when played with total insight, refinement + ardour is a staggeringly powerful,emotionally searching yet rhapsodic work . here alas, as with the Britten sonata - these performers don't quite realise the full expressive range + nuances, not helped by the piano suffering a slightly recessed sound.

an interesting introduction to some key 20th Century cello compositions but not fully realised by Vassiljeva + Aruba. go for Isselis/Devoyen (on virgin) or Britten/Rostropovich (on decca) for the Britten + Debussy instead. i 'll have to keep looking for better versions of the Dutilleux + Stravinsky. so for this cd - 3 stars going on 4.
