4.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful and beguiling.... 20 juin 2014
Par Hannibal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I have many recordings of these wonderful symphonies, and I'd have to say that Lawrence Foster seems to bring out less "personality" or "insights" than many of his contemporaries do, but his middle-of-the-road interpretations never wander or hold back the magnificent flow of these gorgeous scores and certainly do not promote the old shibboleth that Schumann's scoring wasn't up to the task!

Of course, Foster has the magnificent Czech Philharmonic at his disposal, and their playing is simply marvelous, as is Pentatone's SACD recording process which allows one to admire all the beauty of the sounds they produce. If you are able to take the music at face value, without concern for "psychological" interpretations, you'll be happy listener indeed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Sound 30 mai 2008
Par D. Paper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
The two symphonies (1 & 2) on this disc are very well played with a wonderful recording. The tone of the recording is warm and rich. I have several versions of these wonderful symphonies and these are among the best I have heard. I highly recommend this disc. I am patiently awaiting the next release of symphonies 3 & 4 by the same artists on SACD!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lawrence Foster, Czech Phil, Schumann: Syms 1 & 2: Elegant, Moving ... Caught in Excellent High Resolution Surround Sound 9 mars 2009
Par drdanfee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Immediately let me concur with the positive reviews already posted. These readings of the first two Schumann symphonies are as well played as any currently available in the catalog, plus have that extra frisson of full, rich presence which can result from a variety of effective super audio surround sound methods in contemporary recording. Some of this is due to the venue, Dvorák Hall of the Rudolfinum in Prague. The danger of that setting involves its cavernous-sounding spaces; yet the engineers for this recording have struck a very workable, clear, full-frequency balance between the reflections of the hall and the pungent tonal identity of the Czech Philharmonic.

So far as I can tell, the conductor Lawrence Foster has not fiddled with Schumann's orchestration. Even as strict a reader as George Szell could not resist the temptation. I prefer my Schumann orchestrations in two modes, the original, and perhaps Mahler's revisions. Otherwise, I am quite content if leaders and players leave well enough alone.

Comparison markers for these works are many, and those many include very fine performances. My fav shelf already has Sawallisch (Dresden), Klemperer (Philharmonia), Mehta (Vienna), Solti (Vienna), Kubelik (Bavarian Radio), Jerzy Semkow (St. Louis), Szell (Cleveland, in SACD stereo), James Levine (Berlin, & searching hard for Philadelphia), Marek Janowski (Royal Liverpool), Bernstein (Vienna), von Karajan (Berlin), Haitink (Amsterdam), and the most recent add, three discs of super audio released on BIS with Dausgaard and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra. With Dausgaard you also get the original plus the revised versions of the fourth symphony. I also top off this mix with sets of Gustav Mahler's re-orchestrations of the original Schumann, one from Aldo Ceccato on BIS, and one from Ricardo Chailly in Leipzig, plus a marvelous-sounding HIP Set with Herreweghe on Harmonia Mundi. Done yet? Well I also really like David Zinman's complete set of all four symphonies, with what sounds like a reduced size Tonhalle band in Zurich, and I still like his older big band readings from Baltimore on Telarc.

The reason for getting this one, too, involves sound plus performance.

I have been a hard fan of the Czech band for a long time, going all the way back to Karel Ancerl, Vaclav Neumann, Charles Mackerras in Prague, and the under-rated Lovro von Matacic. I watched, or more to the point, listened, as Vladimir Ashkenazy stepped in during a crisis time to buoy up Czech spirits; and it is rewarding to now hear what Lawrence Foster is up to, in Prague. I think Foster is sometimes as under-rated as von Matacic was, though each conductor rates much higher in my own listening. I recall some fine discs on Decca London when Foster led the RPO in Richard Strauss. Then his reach went even higher when some really stunning work was released with the regional orchestra of Barcelona y Catalunya in Spain. To me, Foster passes the old Walter Legge test: Can a conductor get a fifth rate orchestra to play up higher, like a second rate orchestra? (Leos Svarosky also passes this test, with flying colors.) A corollary marker might be: Can a conductor lead a first rate orchestra without the professional players going on high level automatic pilot?

For an example of this point, compare any routine high level reading by Boston, then spin the very special way they play for Abbado on a couple of interim DGG discs (Debussy, Ravel, Tchaikovsky, Scriabin). Automatic pilot does not sound like a very bad reading with any of the top bands, until you hear that band playing off, automatic pilot.

In these two Schumann symphonies, the Czech's are all wide-awake. No automatic pilot. Thanks to the mid-hall listening position, the strings balance well with both brass and woodwinds. This is a true, big band approach to Schumann, like Sawallisch in Dresden, Levine in Philadelphia or Berlin, and so forth. A special sparkle stems from Foster being able to get all the band departments moving, alive, responsive, coordinated in excellent musical time and purpose - lethargy or inertia can drag down big band readings of these Schumann works, sometimes. Foster gets the Czechs to phrase very elegantly without going soggy; and I do like his sense of musical paragraphs. Hear how alertly, how beautifully the Czechs play - strings especially - in the slow movement of each symphony. In faster or more scherzandi passages, Foster encourages the Czechs to play with Mendelssohn Midsummer Night's Dream music lightness and point. For these reasons, and more, I'll take Foster any day over, say, Yakov Kreizberg, among my options in the existing Pentatone catalog. (Just how my ears hear it.)

Now, let's contact Pentatone right away to ask if they can get Julia Fischer to do the violin concerto, and maybe Peter Jablonsky or Juana Zayas to do the piano concerto? Or, how about a complete Mendelssohn incidental music from Prague - led by Foster, with Gabriela Benackova and Dagmar Peckova?

How about getting Leos Svarosky on board, too, while we are at it? He is a real find of a dark horse sleeper candidate among Pentatone choices who might be waiting in the concert hall wings.

The remainder of a full set of all four symphonies is due, shortly. If the last two symphonies are as good as these first two, we have yet another very competitive and very musical option, added to our cornucopia fav shelves. I simply cannot think of any real reason not to get these performances, unless one strenuously objects to big band readings of the Schumann symphonies. Other than that caution, open the wallets, full steam ahead. Kudos to the Pentatone engineering teams, too. They so far seem to be mastering a challenging number of different recording venues, and that is a feat all too easily missed when it comes to appreciating these and other Pentatone discs.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Superior Schumann One and Two in Superb SACD Sound 13 mars 2008
Par J Scott Morrison - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Here in Vermont Spring is just around the corner and we can hardly wait. Slightly jumping the gun, then, was the arrival of this new recording of Schumann's First Symphony, 'Spring', and its successor the lovely Second Symphony. And by one of my favorite orchestras, the always wonderful Czech Philharmonic. Lawrence Foster is a conductor very well known to me from his years as the music director at the Aspen Music Festival, which I've attended yearly for nigh on thirty years. He can be a maddeningly uneven conductor but he has his moments of transcendent music-making and these performances are among those. The traversals of these two endearing symphonies are not outré in any sense, being pretty main stream, but the delicacy and finesse brought to such matters as voicings and phrasings are evidence of a close and artistic relationship between conductor and orchestra. The CPO sound to be in particularly fine form. I've always loved their winds and certainly in these symphonies they have more than enough moments in which to shine. The opening trumpet call of the Spring Symphony is stentorian and yet not brash. The little brass chorale in the slow movement of the 'Spring' is marvelously resonant. And of course the silken strings of this orchestra are famous.

The slow movements of these two symphones are among the loveliest things Schumann ever wrote; indeed, I nominate the third movement of the Second Symphony as one of my top five symphonic movements by any composer. Foster and the CPO play them with obvious love and profound musicianship. The other movements of these two symphonies are on a par musically with them. These performances go to the top tier of great Schumann orchestral recordings.

Possibly the real star of this CD is the recorded sound--rich, supple, deep-textured and yet crystal clear. It is experienced viscerally almost like being in the concert hall. PentaTones engineers deserve the highest praise.

Strongest recommendation.

Scott Morrison

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The surface is most agreeable, but there's no depth 15 mars 2009
Par Santa Fe Listener - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I vaguely knew that Lawrence Foster was a mid-level American conductor, now in is late sixties (he made a brilliant start as a teenager conducting the San francisco Ballet, moving on to be assistant conductor in LA under Zubin Mehta), but I'd never heard a recording or a concert under him. PentaTone has now released a complete Schumann symphony cycle with the delightful Czech Phil. in luscious SACD sound -- I lsitened in regular two-channel stereo.

The accolades don't quite sotp there. Foster takes an optimistic, vivacious view of Sym. #1 and #2, so there's a certain freshness in his readings without dipping into the brisk run-through of David Zinman's cycle form Zurich. It's faddish now to conduct Schumann fast and light form beginning to end; for the most extreme case, try the chamber orchestra version under Thomas Dausgaard. It was raved over, even though at times I wondered if the engineers had mistaken 33 rpm for 78 rpm. Foster isn't as radical, but to my ears, he's just as shallow.

Robert Schumann was the archetype of a Romantic composer, a divided soul as anguished as he was rapturous. Neither side is in evidence here. We get pretty playing that moves nicely from bar to bar, and the sum total is emotionally zero. A previous reviewer who loves the slow movement of the Second Sym. -- as I do -- seems satisfied with the cheerfy skim that it gets under Foster, but one listen to the same music under Bernstein, Karajan, or Klemperer reveals so much more depth, saness, and musical meaning. I've tried to describe what's on this CD without empty fluff. It's a thoroughly professional product if you aren't that interested in being moved very much.
