Bach: Concertos Customer Reviews
||Sparkling, classy performance|
What a brilliant performance! Contrary to some comments I have read already (“too fast”), I find the choice of tempo is just right –“fast” movements are energetic and with a tightly focused sense of rhythm which is utterly compelling, and the slower movements are played with an finely judged intensity and beauty, especially in the concerto for oboe and violin. Bach’s secular music is for playing for the sheer sake of enjoyment, as much as anything else, and I particularly like the sense of naturalness and spontaneity in these performances which make them sound live rather than the product of studio sessions. I am no violin player myself, so I can’t comment on Ms Hahn’s technique except to say that I don’t even think about technique or feel I need to comment on the standard of her performance (or indeed any of the other musicians) when listening to this disc - the music simply shines through and it just sounds so “right”. I believe this recording will quickly become a reference standard. What I particularly appreciate (and this is a feature of all of Hilary Hahn’s discs) is her own personal comments in the CD booklet about how she relates to the music – why don’t other musicians do this? Music is such a personal thing and it’s great to personalise the recording like this instead of most CD’s where usually nothing is said about or heard from the artist. The sound quality on the SACD is great – string instruments are, to my mind, never properly captured on 44kHz, 16bit PCM, whereas their timbres are realistically portrayed in this recording.
