Concertos pour violon & orchestre n° 1 à n° 6 / Alexandre Dubach, violon - Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo, dir. Michel Sasson
Top Customer Reviews
Concertos 1 and 4 are conducted by Michel Sasson, and the rest by Lawrence Foster, (What a pity Sasson hadn't been used throughout), and the sound is very good but variable from disc to disc.
The performances of Nos. 1 and 4 are easily the highlight of the set. I'm not sure whether this is mainly due to these two being probably the best of Paganini's six existing concertos, the fact that they get the best recorded sound, or to Sasson's superb orchestral contribution. Probably a combination of all three.
The chemistry between Sasson and Dubach is phenomenal, delivering easily the best performances I've ever heard. The two strike sparks off one another in what I can only describe as the cheekiest and most outrageous performances on disc, (listen to the third mvt. of No.4 if you don't believe me). The set is worth its modest price for this disc alone. The orchestra literally have to play second fiddle to the soloist in any of Paganini's works, but nobody seems to have told Sasson this. His witty and tongue firmly in cheek contribution is infectious to say the least, and Dubach raises the bar himself to match it. Terrific stuff.
The remaining concertos are very well done, (although no performance by anyone is ever likely to make more than a curiosity out of the boring No.Read more ›
Each of the six concertos is rich in tonal colour and as these are also very difficult concertos to play the soloist gives a virtuoso performance in each piece.It is quite difficult to review classical music as each person will have their own preferences as to how a particular piece should be played and sound.
As a violin player myself I will just say that the solo parts on this set are expertly played and the individual interpretations, although quite subjective, will please the most critical listener.
It is always a danger for a soloist or conductor to take a piece either too slowly or too quickly but on these particular recordings I find that all the pieces are taken at the correct tempo causing no undue frustrations to the listener. The sound is bright,crisp and fresh and Dubach gives a precise and well studied performance. The music of Paganini is scintilating and sparkles and shimmers all the way through and nothing is left wanting by the listener.Read more ›
