Claudio Abbado – Conductor


The cd is unique for including Mussorgsky's rarely-performed independent orchestral pieces: Intermezzo in modo classico, The Capture of Kars and the Scherzo. The conductor, Claudio Abbado, takes advantage of the sensitive modern digital sound to produce a record full of inspiration. The Berliner Philharmoniker responds to him terrifically. Kotcherga, older than he was is Abbado's dvd of Khovanshchina, sings Shaklovity's aria like a Dosifey or a Boris, and his Chernobog is thrilling. Tarasova has a real depth of tone which great Marfas such as Semtschuk and Cossotto lacked. She is described as a mezzo but both here and in Boris Godunov (where she played the innkeeper) she sounds like a contralto. The choir here sings with better diction than in Abbado's Khovanshchina dvd. The only problem is the packing: There's no mention of who orchestrated the excerpts from Khovanshchina. (Shostakovich, I guess) On the whole, this is a perfect example of Mussorgsky's art (and Abbado's). ---amazon.com
