“The cellists of the São Paulo SOP give measured and beautifully poised accounts of Nos 1 and 5 and the performers catch the intimacy one expects of the medium. Donna Brown is in fine voice in No 5… No 4 may well be the most unfamiliar to those who know the standard "orchestral" version... evocative of Bach in its use of a keyboard. Jean Louis Steuerman... plays with great finesse and understanding...” Gramophone Magazine, December 2007

Eight Cellists of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra

The “Eight Cellists of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra" were founded in 1980.

Numerous celebrated Austrian composers wrote works for them, and in the following ten years over one hundred concerts, both within Austria and internationally, were played by the ensemble. Since 2005 the “Eight“ have re-established, largely with new members. Eight cellos on the stage - that is a very special event. The choice of instruments makes it possible to explore the most diverse sound space. A wide variety of instrumental timbres are made use of the realisation of our musical ideas. These range from the virtuosic brilliance of the soprano to the sweetly saturated sound of eight tenors, down to the lowest fundamentals of the bass. Our particular interest lies in opening up new dimensions of supposedly familiar works through their re-instrumentation. The arrangements are true to the original; no note is actually new; doublings are simply omitted and octave transpositions are made where necessary. Scoring with eight of the same instruments brings new, exiting cross connections to the listener´s attention. Furthermore, the solo interpretation of each individual part creates a multifaceted, very personal, chambre-music-like intimacy. The “Cinemascope“ arrangement of the players lends a further dimension. You will need both ears.

Licia Albanese (soprano) & Robert Merrill (baritone)

RCA Victor Orchestra, Frieder Weissman, Dick Marzello, Jean Morel, Victor Trucco

“One of the most delicate, sighing, judiciously used women’s voices one might ever hear.” That was the verdict of the tenor Giacomo Lauri-Volpi, writing in his fascinating study of the leading singers of his time, Voci parallele (Bologna ed. 1977). “Licia Albanese,” he says, “would move on stage purposefully, with precision, painting her tones with careful control of her means and a clear perception of their end”. Audiences were captivated by an effect of modesty, simplicity and tenderness but behind that effect was a solid mastery of her art. He, the senior artist, is full of admiration. But he has a warning: we should not suppose that these fixed, fossilised, mummified objects we call records can convey the individuality, the true character of such singers. So: caveat emptor. Lauri-Volpi had his own way of putting things (that adjective ‘sighing’ surprises us, not so much in itself as in its placing, second among the primary characteristics of the singer he is describing, and one may well object that records, however ‘fixed’, can at least sing to us, which is more than fossils and mummies can do). There is still something in what he says. He is thinking of Albanese’s particular kind of art: that delicate, ‘sighing’ quality which he hears inwardly, summoned up in a memory that is visual as well as aural and which is scarcely to be ‘fixed’, held still. Its essence lies in the moving, breathing individual. He speaks of her strong intuitive faculties. She knew what she was going to do next, vocally and dramatically – but what the audience experienced was the sense of an assured spontaneity. In the theatre you felt that her singing and her movements might take any number of forms: in a recording it will always take one. The living being is caught, pinned-down, captured; and that’s not the way she was.

The 12 Cellos of the Berlin Philharmonic

Who knew that the solid, staid old Berlin Philharmonic had such a groovy group of swingers in its cello section? One of them plays the maracas during the rests in his part, others slap their instruments with abandon, and some of them even shout at appropriate moments: if this makes them sound like trainspotters letting their hair down, it's not meant to. This recording of South American and South American-inspired music is full of joy from beginning to end, and played with the kind of accuracy other ensembles only dream of. The mood ranges from sultry and sweaty (Kaiser-Lindemann's Brazilian Variations) through coolly intellectual (the Fugue from Bachianas Brasileiras No. 1) to pure sunshine (Burt Bacharach's "South American Getaway"). The arrangements are models of their kind, and the cellists respond to their challenges with bravura and passion--at times creating sounds remarkably like a bandonéon, at others producing perfect harmonics in octaves or just singing out with pure joy. Irresistibly seductive.
