Lesser known pieces give alternate look at classical masters
The lush Chandos sound continues on these recordings of Beethoven's Triple Concerto (violin, cello, piano w/ orchestra) and Brahms' Double Concerto (violin, cello w/ orchestra).
While these pieces pose a challenge to the listener (and quite possibly a challenge to the composers), with the soloing instruments seeming to struggle for their moment in the spotlight, the genius of both composers remains evident.
The 1887 Brahms Double is a darker, sometimes brooding romantic piece. While the 1803 Beethoven Triple is a lighter classically-oriented (read: Mozart) piece.
The soloists from Trio Poseidon and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra play with masterful control and fervor when called upon by maestro Neeme Jarvi.
Overall, highly recommended versions of these lesser known pieces.more....
