4.0 out of 5 stars No Nonsense Approach March 1 2010
By mishmashmusic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ben-Sasson and Sternfield take a no-nonsense approach and pretty much play these pieces by the book, whereas the previous release with Maria Kliegel and Nina Tichman had a slightly more adventurous flare. In this latest release, Ben-Sasson's cello is reserved and subdued, while Sternfield mainly plays the support role. It's not quite academic, yet it gives the whole album a more serious feel overall. This is not a bad thing, quite the contrary, because it complements the previous album and its relative looseness. For me personally, having the two different performances to compare shows the depth of interpretations that can be made.

That having been said, this particular album would be a great introduction to Fauré because of this steady, hands-on approach. It captures the essence of the music without straying too far, allowing the listener to branch out from there. Add to the fact that this is a complete rendering of his output for cello, and you have a fantastic starter for the rest of his chamber music.
5.0 out of 5 stars Naxos always delivers March 11 2014

I'm sure that many people who buy recordings of classical music select from among the various recordings of a piece by choosing a soloist or ensemble that they like. In general, that means that they won't consider many Naxos recordings, which is a shame. I have a number of Naxos discs, and they are uniformly well-recorded and produced, and although I'm no great expert the performances (usually by less well-known musicians) sound fine to me. The Naxos discs are often less expensive than other recordings, too.

Naxos also offers many works--especially works by American composers--that aren't available elsewhere. While I wouldn't opt for Naxos recordings only because they seem committed to keeping a wide range of classical repertoire available, I am happy to buy dependably excellent recordings that also keep classical works accessible to fans. Try a Naxos recording of a favorite piece and see what you think.

(No, I'm not associated in any way with Naxos.)
