+ Description

Works by Girolamo Frescobaldi, Alessandro Marcello, Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frideric Handel, Louis De Caix D'Hervelois, Joseph Rheinberger, a.o. Recorded at : St. Giles in the Barbican, London, May 1993 Producer : Martin Fouqué Recording Engineer: Eberhard Sengpiel Assistant Engineer : Tobias Lehmann, Wolfram Niehls From the original masters of Warner Music. Direct metal mastering by Hans-Jörg Mauksch at Pauler Acoustics. 180g audiophile virgin vinyl pressed by Pallas Group GmbH in Germany. First time ever on vinyl records. The arrangements are clearly intended to spotlight the expressive capabilities of the cellist. Rostropovich responds with characteristic warmth and beauty of tone, and Herbert Tachezi is relegated to a discreet supporting role. - BBC Music Magazine Until we get to Rheinberger and Saint-Saëns these are works derived from the pre-romantic eras. They are however given the intimate romantic treatment... and glorious-ly indulgent too with the cello warming the cockles of the hardest heart. There’s a break from such radiance in the slim-line cantabile delicacy of the suite by Louis de Caix d’Hervelois where Tachezi exchanges the organ for the harpsichord. The contented warmth returns in three gentle movements from Rheinberger’s op. 150 – a work originally for violin and organ. The collector’s item is the lovely breathy Pastorale - Musicweb International
