Dvorak & Tchaikovsky: Works for Cello & Orchestra

Dvorak & Tchaikovsky: Works for Cello & Orchestra


Dvorak:

Cello Concerto in B minor, Op. 104

Tchaikovsky:

Variations on a Rococo Theme, Op. 33


“There have been a number of outstanding recordings of the Dvorák Concerto since this DG record was made, but none to match it for the warmth of lyrical feeling, the sheer strength of personality of the cello playing and the distinction of the partnership between Karajan and Rostropovich. Any moments of romantic licence from the latter, who's obviously deeply in love with the music, are set against Karajan's overall grip on the proceedings. The orchestral playing is superb.
You've only to listen to the beautiful introduction of the secondary theme of the first movement by the principal horn to realise that the BPO is going to match its illustrious soloist in eloquence, while Rostropovich's many moments of poetic introspection never for a moment interfere with the sense of a spontaneous forward flow. The recording is as near perfect as any made by DG in that vintage analogue era. It gives the cello a highly realistic presence, and if the passionate fortissimo violins lose just a fraction in fullness, and there seems to be, comparably, just a slight loss of resonance in the bass, the sound picture has an impressively clear and vivid focus.
In the coupled Tchaikovsky Rococo Variations, Rostropovich uses the published score rather than the original version. However, he plays with such masterly Russian fervour and elegance that any criticism is disarmed. The music itself continually demonstrates Tchaikovsky's astonishing lyrical fecundity, as one tune leads to another, all growing organically from the charming 'rococo' theme. The recording is marvellously refined.
The description 'legendary' isn't a whit too strong for a disc of this calibre.”
Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

“two great musicians performing with complete sympathy for each other: Rostropovich on top form and Karajan an attentive partner” Gramophone Magazine (James Jolly)

“The intensity of lyrical feeling and the spontaneity of the partnership between Karajan and Rostropovich ensures the position of their DG disc at the top of the list of recommendations.” Penguin Guide, 2011 edition

Jürnjakob Timm (cello)

Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Kurt Masur

Kurt Masur and Jürnjakob Timm – Masterworks For Violoncello

Jürnjakob Timm was for many decades Principal Solo Cellist with the Gewandhaus Orchestra of Leipzig and is today a member of the Gewandhaus Quartet. The cellist has performed as soloist with orchestras in Germany, other European countries, Japan, South America and the USA. In the course of numerous concert tours with the Gewandhaus Orchestra he played cello concertos of the Classical, Romantic and modern eras under the baton of Kurt Masur. The present recording was the first orchestra recording by Jürnjakob Timm for the classical Eterna label. Together with Kurt Masur, the Gewandhaus Orchestra’s director for many years, he recorded two standard works for cello and orchestra in the Paul Gerhardt Church in Leipzig in 1983: Schumann’s Cello Concerto in A minor and Tchaikovsky’s famous Rococo Variations.

December 2015 was marked by the death of the long-serving Principal Conductor of the Gewandhaus Orchestra and artist of world renown Kurt Masur. “He won over his critics in the course of his long life as a personality distinguished by his bearing, which surpassed music, and as a conductor whose ever more finely nuanced pragmatism of interpretation made the language of the orchestra intelligible, comprehensible, tangible. He was thus a maestro with the human touch, who could move people profoundly.” (Ralf Dombrowski, Der Spiegel)
