Best Listened To In The Local Pub On A Saturday Night July 12 2014
By Melvyn Bowler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This 2 cd set is very disappointing.

The word insipid comes to mind when describing the orchestra. Aalborg is not known for it's symphony orchestra, but I thought if Bournemouth can produce such a great orchestra for Sibelius, then maybe Aalborg can do the same for Tchaikovsky.

It can't and it didn't.

Whilst listening to Oleg Marshev I did wonder if he was really a wannabee drummer, and had missed his vocation. Tchaikovsky was such a brilliant composer that his music can usually bring pleasure no matter how poor the performance. But Marshev and Aaborg achieve a first for me. They have succeeded in making Tchaikovsky sound like the players are ensconced in a bowl of porridge.

Don't look for nuances - there are none.

Included on the cd are some rare pieces of Tchaikovsky - andante and finale, which is interesting - and allegro, which is not.

A final note about the piano - if the notes had said it came from the local pub and used every Saturday night for a sing-song I would have believed this.

If fact, the whole performance would probably sound a lot better in a pub.

On the other hand, full marks for a spirited physical performance that is possibly unique - and therefore has interest and value.
