Quote from: OrchestralNut on April 22, 2021, 10:07:04 AMI'm listening to the Maria Kliegel/Halasz recording for the first time (as I run through the Naxos complete Dvorak published orchestral works box set), and I must say I am preferring this version to the other version I have of the Cello Concerto in my collection (Rostropovich/Karajan).
Quote from: Madiel on July 06, 2022, 03:27:18 AMThis thread was an interesting read in conjunction with a couple of other sources, after listening to 1 one of my 2 recordings and really, really disliking it. And I ought not to dislike Dvorak.The recording in question was Tortelier/Previn. There's a kind of shrillness to the cello, which might well be the fault of the recording rather than the performer. I just found myself uninvolved throughout. Come to think of it even in the orchestral introduction.After reading I started on my other recording, which is Schiff/Davis. This doesn't seem to make anyone's best of list, but it just seemed so much more listenable. Maybe a touch on the mellow side but that was a better option than everything being shrill.I shall definitely have to try Queyras - consistently praised and I know I like him in other works.Funnily enough, Hurwitz' absolutely top pick is Schiff/Previn. I have the right cellist and the right conductor, just not together. :laugh:

Quote from: Brian on July 06, 2022, 02:33:16 PMI have tried Paul Tortelier in a lot of contexts and unfortunately he always seems to have that shrill, unpleasant tone to his playing. The Fauré disc with Eric Heidsieck is ruined by it as well.
