12 CELLISTAS DE BERLIN LOS

Format: Audio CD
Twelve German BPO musicians play 19 tunes in a heady mix of French classical music by such impressionist stalwarts as Ravel, Fauré, Debussy, Satie and Poulenc, and songs by popular composers such as Charles Trenet, Edit Piaf, Vincent Scotto and Michel Legrand, all tastefully and imaginatively arranged for a chamber ensemble of only cellists. This CD is a wholesome antidote to the nefarious omnipresence of André Rieu, he of the oily charm and the careful hairdo, and his saccharine simplifications of the classics and the "classifying" of the more lachrymonial brand of popular music. Nowhere on this CD is emotion confused with sentiment, are light textures mistaken for candyfloss, are no cuts or simplifications forced upon the original compositions, nowhere have cheap effects been resorted to. Contrary to what Rieu usually does, this compilation cleverly mixes popular tunes (in a setting that closely follows the original intentions) with the "lighter" side of the impressionists (although Satie's Gymnopédie's simplicity is deceptive), while the centre of gravity is kept to the end, the rather more challenging Poulenc composition Figure Humaine, which is not abridged or simplified in any way. There is a logical build up to what real classical music sounds like; the ears have time and opportunity to adjust to an ever more "abstract" kind of absolute music, as opposed to Gebrauchsmusic or utility music.
The musicianship is breathtaking, the beauty of tone, technical prowess and range of the instruments almost beyond belief. If you don't yet know what riches classical music has to offer, this is a much better way of being introduced to it than any Rieu production. But perhaps mine's just a voice in the wilderness.....

this is really easy and enjoyable listening to a world class performance orchestra. I'd call the "12 Cellists" a "BPO sidekick" and good at that they are indeed. And hearing French "classic" chansons presented by cellos is very different indeed and does the chansons every justice.

Brought the product namely due to the artists. The CD I think is beneficial for unwinding after a tough day at the office. The seller provided a very good and courteous service, and the product arrived in excellent condition as described.
