Five stars for the performance, the performers and the programme. If you like watching young people working hard to deliver a great musical performance this is a very interesting DVD. I've never seen an orchestra with so much beautiful performers either. What a beautiful woman are there in Spain!!! The solo-bassoonist is a treat, one playing double bass has a look like a tigress really attacking her instrument. Probably more than 50% of this young orchestra consists of woman so the future of classical music playing in Spain lies in their hands. Could give a shock when some of these girls will ever manage to work so hard they can become members of the Berliner Philharmoniker or that male-orchestra in Vienna.
Five stars for the choice of repertoire. Stokowski's orchestrations of Mussorgsky's key-works are really great and they're played with hair-rising preciseness and accomplishment. The Wagner sounds very processional but it's because I don't like that music very much. The choice for Serebrier's own 3rd Symphony is good, it's a nice work, sometimes reminds you of the English school in string writing or Bernard Herrmann's.
3 stars for the camera direction. 3 or 4 cameras for such difficult works, where there can be so much to see, isn't enough. Sometimes you see that a cameraman is searching for an instruments and he's too late to focus properly on the instrument. Key phrases like timpani strokes are missed, when the oboe plays solo you're focussed on the clarinet, only the first violins are brought properly, important bass or cello phrases - you won't see them.
5 stars for recording and sound quality, great!
1 star als for the very short performance of Carole Farley in Serebrier's 3rd Symphony. I don't know what's wrong: could be just false singing, or the recording, or the acoustics or all those things. A very nasal sound is produced; on the recent CD of this work her singing (vocalising that is) is great, no problem. Maybe she'd cold..... pity.
