The Moscow Chamber Orchestra, about twenty players and their leader, American-born Constantine Orbelian, as always perform with elegance and refinement, qualities that show up admirably in things like Tchaikovsky’s Waltz from the Serenade for Strings, Gershwin’s “Summertime,” Rachmaninov’s Vocalise, and, especially, Frank Bridge’s Valse-Intermezzo.
It’s a lovely, if perhaps redundant, collection from an impressive group of musicians. © 2017 Classical Candor Read complete review
