Truls Mork, Louis Lortie, Hélène Mercier, Alasdair Malloy & Neeme Jarvi - Saint-Saens: Cello Concerto & Other Works (2016)

The Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and Neeme Jarvi present this unusual collection of popular works by Saint-Saens, for orchestra and piano or cello.
Truls Mork, this season Artist in Residence with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, is the soloist in the two contrasted cello concertos. His 'seemingly flawless technical command' is tested in the suave, expressive, famous No. 1 as well as in the many taxing solo passages, huge leaps, and double-stopping flourishes of No. 2.
The indefatigable duo Louis Lortie and Hélène Mercier join in the posthumously published Carnival of the Animals, after a highly successful recording of Concertos by Poulenc with Edward Gardner, Disc of the Week in The Sunday Times. They offer the original version, which features a glass harmonica (normally substituted by a glockenspiel). Louis Lortie is also the soloist in the entertaining fantasia Africa, which incorporates folk tunes of the different countries in which it was composed and which is brought off with consummate zest, as well as in the most characteristic and probably challenging of the composer's keyboard pieces, the Caprice-Valse Wedding-cake, written for the second wedding of the composer's virtuosic pianist friend Caroline Montigny-Rémaury.

"Lortie dispatches the Wedding Cake and Africa with an appropriate light touch and Gallic insouciance, clearly revelling in the digital challenges Saint-Saens presents, matched every step of the way by the spirited Bergen players and Jarvi. It is the best version of these two enchanters since Stephen Hough in 2001, but if you want this particular Chandos selection there is no competition. Lovely programme. Lovely recording. What's not to like?" --Jeremy Nicholas, Gramophone, January 2016
