1. Product Details
Violinist Maxim Vengerov is joined by Virtuosi an ensemble of 11 violins lead by Mikhail Parhomovksy. This is above all a fun record - even more than most collections of violin lollipops a disc for those with a very sweet tooth... Here is a young violinist at the peak of his form enjoying himself from first to last in music undemanding on the ear if not the technique outrageously showing off in a way that for most will be very endearing. Not that the playing is extrovert all the time... Meditationi from Massenets Thais conveys a rare depth of feeling making it more than just a lyrical interlude. With full open recording this winning young violinists many devotees will no doubt have the same response as the enthusiastic Vienna audience. - GramophoneThe latest disc from Maxim Vengerov offers some refreshingly lite listening. Each selection was arranged for Virtuosi an ensemble consisting of 11 violins by its leader Mikhail Parhamovsky. Pianist Vag Papian joins in all the works creating an interesting hybrid of violin/piano duo and chamber orchestra an arrangement that works particularly well in Manuel Ponces hot-blooded Estrellita Schuberts tranquil Ave Maria and Khachaturians rollicking Sabre Dance. Just as effective are Antonio Bazzinis Le Ronde des Lutins which comes off sounding like one of Schnittkes nervy Concerti Grossi and a beautifully homespun rendering of Dvoraks Humoresque No. 7. Of special interest is Tchaikovskys rarely-heard three-movement Souvenir dun lieu cher. One of the composers more restrained works it nonetheless features some beautiful tunes especially the melancholy Meditation.
