 Goebel does not take his time February 22, 2013 By Alan Saxon (Toledo, OH) See All My Reviews "Reinhard Goebel is an acquired taste that I haven't gotten used to yet. He takes the exquisitely beautiful Canon in D, usually performed in 6-7 min. and speeds it up to 3 minutes (2x normal)! The musicians struggle to keep from slurring, but often they can't and notes disappear. I realize that the interpreter has freedom to play with the dynamics and tempos, but Goebels seems to speed it up just to show us he can. I always get the impression that he is always just playing what he sees on the score and not feeling it. It is oh so correct in phrasing, ornaments and dynamics but always too perfect, and has the unwanted effect of squeezing the life out of a piece. The Buxtehude pieces are played dry except for the Sonata in C major, where softness and fluidity save it. The Pachelbel Suite in G major's ravenous dissonant sonorities are just to gorgeous for Goebal to suppress. Good job here!" Report Abuse
