MELODIES - Chen Yi-violin, Lars Hannibal-guitar (OUR Recordings)April 4 2010
- Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This recording is an example of the "best loved musical moments" school of classical music; nothing controversial or upsetting, just pretty tunes, all nice and comforting and familiar. As a sampler of great themes from famous composers, it works fairly well; while it probably wouldn't be of interest to semi-serious fans of the classics (who would be likely to have most, if not all, of this music in their collections already) I could see it being appreciated by older folks looking for background dinner music.
Chen Yi is a fine violinist; she is alternately delicate and subtle or strong and forceful, as needed. Mr. Hannibal provides a thorough, professionally competent accompaniment for her. The real trouble here is that this disc is so poorly recorded and mastered that both of their performances end up lost in a sea of reverb and bad mixes.
