The Best SS PC Cycle2012年7月21日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
For my money, EMI has always had the best Saint-Saens Piano Concerto Cycles available on CD, with the "Double Decker" Decca by Roge/Dutoit, Saint-Saëns: Piano Concertos 1-5 , a nose behind. But why the label chooses to promote the Collard/Previn, first in the "Double Forte" series and more recently in the "Gemini" series as Saint-Saëns: Piano Concertos 1-5; Wedding Cake Caprice-Valse , and the Tacchino/Froment, usually the box set representative and loaned out to Brilliant Classics on Saint Saens Symphonies:Piano Concertos-Violin Concertos , is surprising to me now that I've listened to this set by Aldo Ciccolini with Serge Baudo leading the Orchestre de Paris. The former is a solid performance, primarily due to Previn's command of the Royal Philharmonic, but there is a certain sparkle and confidence in these 1970 recordings that is lacking ever so slightly in the others -- perhaps the sign of a truly great pianist in Ciccolini versus simply good ones. The 1st and 5th Concertos never really appealed to me before, but after hearing them in these master's hands, I've changed my tune. The fact that EMI has kept Ciccolini's hands tied by leaving this set out of print for so many years is a crime.

I bought the LP version of this product many years ago and wore it out. Aldo Ciccolini is one heck of a talented pianist who can play as accurately and as fast as anyone, including Shostakovich who was technically incredible. However, speed alone does not a virtuoso make. I also love the interpretation. If I had to pick one track off the entire set it would be the last movement of the second Concerto. His playing is absolutely mesmerizing. The LP recording sounds a slight bit "warmer" but otherwise the set is blessed with very good sound as well. Whenever I buy CD reissues of an LP I always hold my breath because the quality is generally lower but in this case the engineers did a pretty good job! I highly recommend this set.
