Review by raffells January 8, 2008 (9 of 9 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
Probably the best recorded Cello Concerto disc ever?.My late winner of last years disc of the year.Also my most expensive and difficult to obtain but well worth it.
Compare the sound to Starkers similair MLP and you are light years away and very little difference in playing.I have been startled by the range in this recording by ?????? and ???? with ????? conducting.WHO?
Yes Ive been to Germany at least 15 times and have never heard of the places.Sorry Darland.
The playing and placement of the orchestra are nigh on perfect for these works.Titled Romantic Cello concertos its basically French when you consider Sarasates life was spent in that country.
The Saint Saens lighter and the more romantic is not overplayed that way.The Lalo is given a slightly more dramatic performance which matches the work and the nine minutes showpiece ending where the playing will astonish you gives you a perfect balance for a disc.
The booklet in German and English mentions Kerstin Feltz was born in Jena but not when ,unkind photo of her in semi sephia on front cover could be 20 to 50ish there is a more youthfull portrait inside.I will buy anything she records in sacd now.
If you want demonstration discs of genuine high fidelity then buy this.Also if you want just under an hours perfect sounding cello and orchestra.
