5.0 out of 5 stars A sparkling confection - one of Marriner's best, 10 Jun 2013

This review is from: Suppe: Overtures (Audio CD)
This well recorded disc, made in 1989, finds Marriner on top form doing what he does best - leading performances of sparkle and vigour coupled with immaculate playing of music that is essentially high quality light entertainment.

Music of this entertaining character requires playing of great precision and verve if it is not to fall flat. Producing a disc full of light music such as this requires a particular brand of skill and musicianship and that, Marriner has in some quantity. Marriner has made other recordings of similar music but this can be counted as being among his very best.

I would suggest that this disc warrants serious consideration as a purchase prospect. A compelling but more serious view of more of these overtures conducted by Kuhn with the RPO can be bought as a pair of discs on BMG/RCA and there is a famous Mercury set with Paray and the Detroit orchestra that stands in a category apart for sheer verve that leaves even Marriner in the shade. The music and variety of performances on all these discs warrant buying them all, but Marriner's will give plenty of pleasure on its own for those just looking for a single disc of distinction.
