Dvorak: Symphony No. 9, Silent Woods, Rondo for cello & orchestra, Slavonic Dances Op. 46 Nos. 5, 6 & 8

Miklós Perényi (cello
Concerto Budapest
András Keller (conductor)

Dvořák’s 9th symphony paints the town red, for sure. But that’s not all! The strings of András Keller are able to blossom like flowers. They don’t play uniformly but with a seemingly congenital naturalness as if it were easy for 14 violins to sound as homogeneously and at the same time as individually as a single violin. Also for the wind it is not the high performance that counts but the sensitivity and the flowing of the music, e. g. the English horn solo in the second movement. The brass: no power play but rich and gentle, always sensitive chords. – The tempi, the transitions, everything flows organically and invites you to go along. That is the great art of legato. Old-fashioned to some people, in fact timeless beautiful. No surprise that one role model for András Keller is Wilhelm Furtwängler. After that and without any showing off the loved by many cellist Miklós Perényi gently carries you off into the mysterious world of the rondo op 68/8 and “Klid” (silent wood) op. 95. Three slavonic dances from op. 46 round off the program.

This is available on both cd and sacd formats. Following the links to buy will take you to the cd version, which I'm sure would not be intent of the purchaser. The SACD does not appear to be available on any of the purchase links. The correct sacd is listed on Arkiv.

Further investigation reveals that this is being released in both cd and sacd formats. The CD is available in a few days and the SACD in Sept. If you order the SACD, be careful that you haven't received the CD. This has happened to me in the past on another label.

There is a mistake in the order number: Tacet 0250-0 is the CD version. The SACD version is Tacet 0250-4 (Barcode 40 09850 025047)
