I hardly write reviews and certainly not on classical music but since I bought this disc yesterday I can't stop be mesmerized by it. I actually bought it because I wanted to document it here on Discogs knowing the original issue wasn't in the database but also because I am fascinated by this orchestra and its development over the years. It might look like a disc with a collection of some of the slighter pieces of these two composers (ok, Tchaikovsky's Serenade is quit highly regarded) but I want to make a case for the three pieces (tracks 2 to 4) for cello and string orchestra by Tchaikovsky. Having them here together in this sequence is almost like they are making a case for it to be a singular three movement piece, a miniature cello concerto by Tchaivosky and a strong case it is. These three pieces compliment themselves really well and despite all three movements having a husked night-time mood it doesn't feel monochromatic. The cello playing is exemplary and the Nieuw Sinfonietta Amsterdam is following and supporting the soloist every step of the way.
