Mozart : Quintette piano & vents, K452 - Symph. Concertante hautb., clarin., basson, cor, K297b - Beethoven : Quintette piano & vents, Op.16 / Walter Gieseking, piano - Dennis Brain, cor... - Quatuor vents du Philharmonia - Philharmonia Orch., dir. Herbert von Karajan
Walter Gieseking is joined by stellar wind players, including the great hornist Dennis Brain; and the Quintets have a gleaming, robust quality that make them irresistible. They were recorded in the mid- 1950s, a time when Gieseking sometimes operated on automatic pilot, but here he sounds involved and fluent; the keyboard part played with aristocratic grace and, where appropriate, sparkling high spirits. The filler is one of Herbert von Karajan's few successful Mozart recordings, aided immeasurably by the expert first-desk soloists of the Philharmonia. Fans of Gieseking and Dennis Brain will want this disc, but anyone will enjoy this happy combination of fine playing, music that's lovely if not profound, and excellent mono sound. --Dan Davis
I'm afraid that while I otherwise applaud and approve his review, I take great exception to David Bryson's description of K297b as "a minor work of spurious attribution to Mozart performed under the baton of Uncle Herbert". It is a sublime piece in a recording I have loved for thirty years; I was delighted when it appeared on this issue. It features the same wonderful artists as in the Mozart and Beethoven quintets, with an orchestra and conductor in top form - no need to be snide about Karajan, especially if one is not even familar with the music. Mr Bryson says that he is "of course unable to offer comment on the filler" and admits that even if he did know it he "would have had next to nothing to say about that in any event" - so why talk disparagingly of it?
Having got that off my chest, I urge any music lover to acquire these cheap, classic accounts of some of the most delightful music ever written.
wohl eine von denen ich meine, besser geht es nicht.
Applause is appropriate upon hearing this marvelous disc full of piano, winds and orchestra accompaniment. Never much of any instrument overshadowing or stand aloneness, but always together, with remarkable tone balance and pure speaking.
Performers here are extraordinary, from superb hornist Brain to clarinetest Walton to bassoonist James and oboist Sutcliffe soaring on the Sinfonia, which is one of treasures of this piece.
