Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Every so often – not as often as one would wish – an awesome performance of a masterwork is performed by a rare and extraordinary talent that completely blows away everything that went before. Such rare occurrences can be counted on ones fingers – the two stunning interpretations of ‘The four seasons’ – one performed by Nigel Kennedy – the other by Jacques Lousier; The Royal Ballet’s 2014 visionary performance of ‘Don Quixote’ as realised and choreographed by Carlos Acosta and danced by Marianela Nunez and Carlos Acosta (available on BluRay); and Itzack Perlman’s performance of Sarasati being perfect examples of what I mean.

THIS CD contains just such performances!

When one watches an opera or ballet, or listens to a performance of a masterwork, one requires TWO things to be in place – a moving interpretation of the masterwork one wishes to savour and relish in its splendour and magnificence, and SONIC FIDELITY to capture ALL of the nuances and dynamics that the performers deliver at the flick of a baton. THIS CD delivers BOTH in SPADES!

Recorded in August 1986 on the finest recording media of the day, here we have a stunning partnership of the American conductor Laurence Leighton and the Russian conductor Dmitri Kitayenco – both conducting The Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra - creating beautifully expressive and very moving interpretations of the music of Shostakovich (The Festival); Copland (Appellation Spring – which includes ‘The gift to be simple’); Gershwin (Lullaby for string quartet); Griffes (The White Peacock tone poem); Glazunov (Valse in D); and Ives (The Unanswered Question) as they take you on a deeply moving spiritual journey where East meets West.
