Product Description


Heinrich Schiff is 50 and he's celebrating in the best possible way: with a double CD offering an unusual combination of cello works by Dvorák, Schumann, Strauss and Prokofiev. It makes perfect sense to start with Dvorák's Cello Concerto, since this is one of best-loved works in the repertoire. Schiff's entry has a dark gravitas which presages a performance devoid of the usual heart-on-sleeve stuff: with Colin Davis and the Concertgebouw providing the underpinning, emotion is at full throttle, but Schiff's natural restraint prevents it going over the top. Next comes Prokofiev's Symphony-Concerto Op. 125--a long-running headache for the composer, who took 20 years to find its right form. It's uncharacteristically muted and tentative--qualities which Schiff turns into strengths. Meanwhile, with Kurt Masur at the helm, Strauss's Don Quixote emerges in all its whirling, variegated intricacy, while Bernard Haitink and the Berlin Phil provide the ideal setting for Schiff's noble and tender treatment of Schumann's concerto.--Michael Church
