Cello – Steven Isserlis. Composed By – Camille Saint-Saëns. Conductor – Christoph Eschenbach. Orchestra – r Hamburg.
Happily, Saint-Saens' far less well-known Second Cello Concerto has now received an outstanding performance by Isserlis, accompanied by the r under Christoph Eschenbach. While Isserlis is more impulsive and spontaneous than a super-elegant player such as Pierre Fournier, he is nowhere near as mannered and theatrical as Paul Tortelier, to cite two masters of this repertoire. Eschenbach and his orchestra give a Northern flavor to the music, which makes it seem more rigorous, and, as Isserlis implies in the CD's booklet notes, Saint-Saens needs all the image mending.
Saint-Saëns: Cello Concerto No. 2. Eschenbach, North German Radio Symphony Orchestra, Isserlis. Standing in the shadow of Saint-Saëns' extremely popular first cello concerto, his second never stood much of a chance. With this recording, Steven Isserlis, Christoph Eschenbach and the NDR Symphony Orchestra demonstrate how unjustified this neglect is. Although it features fewer virtuoso passages than the first, this concerto still demands real technical mastery from the soloist. Isserlis masters the tricky passages with bravura. Together with Eschenbach, he brings a real sense of flow.
