Tchaikovsky:

The Nutcracker, Op. 71


The famous yearly Berliner Philharmoniker Open-Air concert at the Berlin Waldbühne attended by more than 20,000 people. The atmosphere is unique and unconventionally relaxed. People bring champagne, salmon and caviar, making the Waldbühne a giant picnic area. Candles are lit, transforming the area into an atmospheric venue for some of the most popular pieces of classical music.

The 2009 programme has a Russian feel to it, with classic pieces by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and Stravinsky; three pieces of the core repertoire, among the most popular ones.

Yefim Bronfman, artist of international reputation, and specialist of the Russian repertoire, achieves a brilliant performance of this 3rd Concerto of Rachmaninoff.

Romantic, different, and relaxed, this is a superb summer night in Berlin - not only for fans of classical music.

Romain Leleu (trumpet) & Julien Le Pape (piano)

"The Slavonic works presented here include original works for trumpet, written by composers who are not well known to the general public, and also arrangements of popular works, ones that everyone must have heard at some time or another. The latter include Vocalise by Rachmaninov, Valse Sentimentale and the last movement, Mélodie, from Souvenir d’un lieu cher by Tchaikovsky, and the famous Flight of the Bumblebee, an orchestral interlude written by Nikolay Rimsky- Korsakov for his opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan. This recording represents an important new step for me; I hope it will give the listener as much pleasure as it gave me. “ Romain Leleu

“healthy doses of both tumultuousness and poignant delicacy” BBC Music Magazine, September 2010 ****

“In large-scale sonatas by Glazunov, Medtner and Prokofiev, his playing glows with conviction and includes passagework spun off with an all-Russian legato. Then, his outwardly formidable and unsmiling demeanour on the concert platform is erased in a performance of Tchaikovsky's "Chant sans paroles" of a beguiling charm” Gramophone Magazine, October 2010

Dmitri Hvorostovsky (baritone), Ivari Ilja (piano)

“Bringing them all to life is Hvorostovsky's performance - passionate, brooding or forceful with Pushkin's flowing lines, in a manner which might be a bit overpowering in less emotional music, but is exactly right for these songs...His word-sense and diction remain exemplary...Ivari Ilja is an equally spirited accompanist.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2010 *****

“...his demonstration of finely controlled legato and evenness of tone through the registers is truly impressive.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2010

“...there's a particularly Russian ecstasy and agony in Pushkin's lyrical poetry that requires a broad musical brush to do it proper justice. This seems bred in the artistic bone for Hvorostovsky, so there's an almost conversation style...Despite his formidable horsepower [he] can be silky and subtle when required...evidently a singer for all Russian seasons!” International Record Review, July/August 2010
