. . . [Shostakovich / Symphony no. 6]: this Sixth is very much a worthy successor to the previous releases . . . [Nelsons's tempos in the opening Largo are very spacious,] but they allow him to marshal a cumulative power and a nearly Brucknerian heft in the massed strings. In the middle movement, the BSO winds and brass find a way of lacing old-school virtuosity with a knowing twist of irony. And the forcefully propulsive gallop of the closing presto drives the entire work home . . . there are also some well-remembered releases with high-profile guests . . . including Rafael Kubelik's famous account of Smetana's "Ma Vlast" and Claudio Abbado's diaphanously beautiful recording of Debussy's "Nocturnes" . . .

[Shostakovich /Symphony no. 6]: Both sonically and interpretively, this Sixth is very much a worthy successor to the previous releases in this series. Nelsons's tempos in the opening Largo are far more spacious than those taken by, for instance, his mentor Mariss Jansons, but they allow him to marshal a cumulative power and a nearly Brucknerian heft in the massed strings. In the middle movement, the BSO winds and brass find a way of lacing old-school virtuosity with a knowing twist of irony. And the forcefully propulsive gallop of the closing presto drives the entire work home . . . there are also some well-remembered releases with high-profile guests (including Rafael Kubelik's famous account of Smetana's "Ma Vlast", Claudio Abbado's diaphanously beautiful recording of Debussy's Nocturnes, and a Schubert "Unfinished" Symphony with Eugen Jochum).

. . . tout ici se situe entre l'excellence et l'exceptionnel, la qualité se substituant à la quantité . . . un disque Hindemith comprenant la Symphonie "Mathis der Maler", une interprétation impressionnante des "Planètes" de Holst n'ayant rien à envier aux références anglaises, une version grandiose "d'Ainsi parlait Zarathoustra" de Richard Strauss, le tout rehaussé d'une prise de son époustouflante! . . . Claudio Abbado et Michael Tilson Thomas nous éblouissent par des Debussy inoubliables: le premier avec les Trois Nocturnes, le second avec les Images et le "Prélude à l'après-midi d'un Faune" . . . [nous savourons] une intégrale Ravel où il surpasse Munch (c'est tout dire !); des Respighi très colorés mais sans la moindre vulgarité; de remarquables intégrales de la "Damnation de Faust" et "Roméo et Juliette" de Berlioz, et de ballets ("Lac des Cygnes", "Casse-Noisette", "Roméo et Juliette"); une interprétation idéale du "Songe d'une Nuit d'Été" de Mendelssohn . . . une superbe Symphonie no 1 de Mahler où Ozawa fut l'un des pionniers à restaurer "Blumine" en deuxième mouvement; un Concerto pour violoncelle no 2 de Chostakovitch avec Rostropovitch, aussi indispensable que le no1 avec Rostropovitch-Ormandy; un disque Fauré de toute beauté, où la Pavane se déroule dans sa version chorale rarement enregistrée . . . Il est également intéressant de retrouver dans ce coffret des oeuvres concertantes de deux compositeurs américains que l'on n'attendait pas nécessairement dans ce domaine: André Previn et John Williams, respectivement interprétées avec panache par les violonistes Anne-Sophie Mutter et Gil Shaham. Mais surtout remercions Deutsche Grammophon de joindre au coffret les enregistrements publics extraordinaires réalisés à ce jour par Andris Nelsons d'oeuvres de Dimitri Chostakovitch, musicien de coeur du chef d'orchestre letton.
