5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful playing and beautiful music, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lieux Retrouves (Music For Cello and Piano) (Steven Isserlis/ Thomas Adès) (Hyperion: CDA67948) (Audio CD)
I do not always like Isserlis' playing – too much self-consciously intense, fast vibrato distracts from the music – but this recording is quite different. The melodic, singing lines are very moving, and absolutely stunningly controlled, nuanced and flowing, even to a whisper of a pianissimo (the hardest thing on a cello). The music is very 'accessible' (sorry about the word, but it is...), but with depth and real substance. This is the first piece of Ades' that I have liked too and the cello writing really is just that. Well worth the struggle Isserlis says he had in learning it! Ensemble and piano playing are lovely too. Super disc and a lovely Christmas present.
