The bonuses are two rollicking and rumbustious overtures by Weber, the first very High Romantic and the second simultaneously very Germanic and Turkish, too, of course very reminiscent of "Die Entführung". Great fun.
Having bought Stein's magnificent recording of Bruckner's 2nd Symphony (on Decca, again with the Vienna Philharmonic), I couldn't wait to hear this CD. I certainly wasn't disappointed. Stein brings a human warmth to this most underrated of symphonies that is infectious and extremely satisfying. Where other conductors such as Wand, Karajan, Celibidache to name a few, focus on the monumental aspects of this music, Stein combines a more lyrical and light-handed approach with plenty of gusto and rustic spirit.
The 1st movement is thrilling here with the Viennese brass players presenting a swashbuckling sense of style, together with the exquisite antiphonal effects in the coda, which are brought off magnificently. Stein keeps things moving and doesn't allow the lyrical sections to drag and become ponderous. With the Adagio we are treated to a gorgeous performance, full of colour and a natural elegance of phrasing that is extremely poignant. This is Bruckner as seen through Schubertian glasses I feel - and in the Adagio from the 6th Symphony, this is a very convincing way of interpreting Bruckner's more intimate writing.
Although Stein's reading of the symphony as a whole is not quite as taut as Norrington's very interesting account with the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra, his interpretation of the Scherzo and Finale do come close.Read more ›
