HD-Vinyls 24/96 (DGG) Peter Tchaikowsky – Ouverture 1812, Capriccio Italien, Hamlet, Marche Slave (Bernstein)

Many thanks to our friend Dagote for the vinyl
Since the Israel Philharmonic usually plays as a second line orchestra, i never
took this issue seriously. But after listening disastrous readings of those works by Dudamel, i decided to give Lenny a chance, and.. what a big surprise, can this orchestra play! Those are thrilling and first line performances of this basic tchaikovskian repertoire. First of all, a superb and breathtaking Hamlet, that is with no doubt one of the best on record. Lenny explore every texture, note and detail from the score, taking advantage of some wide tempi, delivering a fantastic and unforgettable rendition, comparable to his late Romeo & Juliet with the NYPO. Then we have a very compelling Marche Slave, powerful and energetic, perhaps not so excellent as his old NYPO recording for CBS, but still a very good one. Finally, the Capriccio Italien and 1812 that are delivered with swaggering virtuosity and panache; cannon salvoes, bells and processional brass approach overkill, but with Lenny before a live audience anything could happen, and often did!

Pay attention: due to a converting error, the tracks B1 and B2 were corrupted. Now everything’s OK. Please, DL again.
