What a difference when it's played by an establisMay 2, 2015By Fletcher James (Leesburg, VA)See All My Reviews"I came here to say that I bought this after hearing a snippet on the radio, and I was amazed at what a difference it makes when it's performed by an established trio rather than a collection of superstars. Then I found that Dorothy Rosenthal had already said exactly what I had planned to, almost verbatim. I will add one aspect, which is this: When an idea is repeated through the voices, they start with a totally common conception of the basic phrasing (e.g.: which note is brought out; how a particular note is shaped; which note in a group is the one which starts the motion to the next beat, etc.) As a result, when there is a
in the development, the smallest change in phrasing can bring it out with total transparency.
The Triple hits a Home RunMarch 31, 2013By Dorothy Rosenthal (Tilghman, MD)See All My Reviews"Now in my eighth decade, I can't count how many times I've heard The Triple Concerto, a great work, but usually poorly played by the trio of soloists. After hearing this recording, I realize why. All other recordings have super stars as the trio, not chamber musicians. The result: the stars are in competition with each other! This recording has a trio of dedicated chamber players, whose chamber music recordings are reliably among the best in the business. No exception this time. The trio treats the work as if they were one instrument supported by an excellent orchestral accompaniment. Beethoven would have been proud! No matter how many recordings of The Triple you have in your collection, you must have this one. You'll put away all your others."Report Abuse
