Follow us on Twitter. That was linked to their evolving Tchaikovsky cycle for Orfeo - the recording will appear in due course. It impelled me to catch up on the previous instalments in the series. The earliest of the three discs couples the Fifth Symphony and Hamlet. This was set down very early in the partnership between Nelsons and the CBSO - he became their Music Director inthe year the recordings were made. Actually, I believe this was the first symphony that they recorded together.
In passing, I wonder how comprehensive this cycle was originally intended to be: was it planned to include the first three symphonies, for example? With Nelsons now leaving Birmingham at the end of the season one wonders how feasible it will be for them to record much more Tchaikovsky or, indeed, to add First Movement: Andante-Allegro Con Anima - Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky their Richard Strauss series.
On the evidence Baby Come Back - Various - Music Magic Hallé Orc three discs it must be hoped that conductor and orchestra will be able to expand their joint discography over the next couple of years. In fact, here and elsewhere the Sir John Barbirolli of the CBSO is splendid and they work very effectively with their conductor in playing this music Sir John Barbirolli delicacy or ardour, as appropriate.
Nelsons chooses a tempo that has sufficient impetus yet which admits clarity of articulation. Mind you, nowadays, with several years of working with the CBSO behind him, I fancy he might step up the pace a bit. Nonetheless, the music is dramatic and fiery. The treatment of the last, martial appearance of the motto theme is interesting.
At the very end Push Me, Pull Me - Pearl Jam - Yield brief elegy from is done with much feeling, First Movement: Andante-Allegro Con Anima - Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky Nelsons avoids the First Movement: Andante-Allegro Con Anima - Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky of making the music sound overwrought.
Hallé Orc performances can stand comparison with the best. In Romeo and Juliet he sees the conflict between the Montagues and Capulets as a metaphor for the fact that in nineteenth-century Russia Tchaikovsky stood no chance of being accepted as a homosexual. The ending from is well judged in all respects. The lovely Andante theme starts tenderly, even modestly but as it is developed Nelsons invests the music with a wonderful surge and with well-controlled passion.
The Allegro vivo from First Movement: Andante-Allegro Con Anima - Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky scalding. Later on the last few minutes are beautifully managed; I especially relished the beautifully phrased clarinet solo from The finale begins with just a three-second break. Be that as it may, as the movement begins to unfold you realise that the ineffable sadness in the music is acutely conveyed, though with no trace of hysteria.
The playing is very eloquent and the reading has a strong emotional charge. I was very moved by it. The most recent disc, like the first of this Hallé Orc, couples works that were composed around the same time as each other. The symphony certainly was since it is followed by vociferous and prolonged applause. Francesca is a marvellous piece, one of my favourite Tchaikovsky works. In the opening pages, which depict the lovers, Francesca and Paolo being tossed around eternally on First Movement: Andante-Allegro Con Anima - Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky whirlwinds of hell, Nelsons and his orchestra whip up a graphically intense tempest.
The love music is ushered in by a soulful clarinet solo This extended section unfolds through much refined - and increasingly passionate - playing; the CBSO strings are especially ardent. This is Hallé Orc thrilling performance. The symphony receives a pretty impressive reading also.
The big first movement is gripping and often highly charged, though the more relaxed passages are elegantly done with some excellent contributions from the woodwind section. The music derived from the Fate motif is consistently urgent and potent and Nelsons brings out all the drama and turbulence in the movement.
The melancholic Andantino is expressively done, though I like the way Nelsons keeps the music moving forward so as to avoid First Movement: Andante-Allegro Con Anima - Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky mawkishness. Once again the soloists from the woodwind section distinguish themselves, not least the poignant bassoon solo at The scherzo is deft while the finale is often dashing and very exciting. Nelsons drives the music hard but not to excess. The playing time in the heading is as stated in the booklet but, in fact, the last movement plays formeaning that the symphony actually lasts for These three discs contain very fine performances that made me listen to this very familiar music intently, taking nothing for granted.
The playing of the CBSO is My Lord Chamberlain, His Galliard - Linn Barnes and Allison Hampton - Forms and Fancies - Rennaisanc throughout. The recorded sound on all three discs is excellent. That Shostakovich recording was made live in Symphony Hall just a matter of months after the recording of the Tchaikovsky Fourth. I mention this because there are no such issues with the recordings of any of the six works being considered here.
