Notes and Editorial Reviews

The fresh, open sound and passionate conducting of countless orchestra performances have made Mariss Jansons one of the most distinguished musical talents of his generation. This exciting program goes behind the scenes to study the rehearsal process for a powerful rendition of Bela Bartok's "Miraculous Mandarin Suite" with the Oslo Philharmonic, followed by the complete final performance of the piece itself. Jansons' energetic and intense approach to this controversial, landmark piece--based on the story of a prostitute whose three accomplices beat and rob her clients--is conveyed to the orchestra through the rigorous rehearsal process, with the musicians pushed to bring the utmost freshness and vitality to their work.
