Cleveland Orchestra/Christoph von Dohnányi. London 425 694-2 [Concerto for Orchestra and Lutos?awski: Concerto for Orchestra] (recorded 1988-89)
Christoph von Dohnányi comes by his affinity for Hungarian music naturally enough as the grandson of composer Ernst von Dohnányi (who, incidentally, signed Bartók’s diploma,) and his solid, weighty account of the Concerto for Orchestra has plenty of undertow. While the Introduction and Game of Pairs come off sounding a bit deliberate, there is still plenty of energy and focus to the reading. The Cleveland Orchestra plays with superb discipline and thrilling virtuosity—at the time probably no other orchestra in the world could match its combination ofRead more knife-edge attacks in the brass, evocative solo wind playing, and glowing string sonority. The disc is very well recorded. – Ted Libbey, author of
