专辑介绍:
这是EMI有史以来最成功古典音乐唱片制作,于1965年8月19日在伦敦著名金斯威音乐厅(Kingsway Hall)的录音。12个月后,这张唱片成为音乐评论家的年度首选。21年过去,当它被转制成CD的时候,人们对它的热情没有随着时间的流逝而减少。杜普蕾的唱片录音不多,每张都是乐迷的宠儿。
杜普蕾是上世纪60年代前后成名的大提琴家,当世人惊叹于她的成就时,却患上罕见的疾病——纤维硬化症;疾病中断了她的演奏生涯,也切断了她短暂的一生,艾尔加的这部大协也成了演奏者不幸的写照。她深入探索乐曲的内在世界、巨细无遗地呈现每个乐句与细节的演出,为此曲的经典之作——充分表达出痛苦与温柔。
这个曲目是埃尔加在协奏曲领域的最高成就,而杜普蕾变幻多彩的音色更为这部作品增加了魅力,她的演奏充满了自由的想象和惆怅的情怀,在第一乐章和第三乐章的深长的呼吸中,没有一个大提琴家能比得上她的那种情感投人,同时,她还传达出一种特殊的沉思意味。巴比罗利爵士指挥的伦敦交响乐团热情有力,对乐曲之领悟力极高。由于年代关系,该版录音虽然不够细腻,但临场感极佳,音场的平衡感也恰到好处。

e小调大提琴协奏曲,Op.85
Cello Concerto in E minor
在传统上,史诗通常是以祈求文艺女神缪斯为开端,而埃尔加便是以向巴赫祈求的曲风来展开这首四个乐章的协奏曲,手法别出心裁。他让独奏者拉出一段宣叙调,呼应巴赫的六首《无伴奏大提琴组曲》,当这段阴暗的序曲结束后,中提琴加入第一乐章的主题,以温和摇荡的9/8拍表达出曆尽沧桑的悲叹,埃尔加以此为基调,发展出整首曲子。
这首1919年完成的大提琴协奏曲,是埃尔加运用管弦乐团的最后一首作品,也是他最深切的自白。当时他病痛缠身,又曆经一次世界大战,让他陷入深切的失望情绪中,他将这些情绪一古脑宣泄于这首原本不太适合大提琴演奏的协奏曲中——但是考虑到大提琴丰富且深沉的特性,与热烈但阴暗的音色,也许此曲还是很适合大提琴的。
四个乐章依序由前一乐章衍生,就如同一个狂想的曲思——以埃尔加对主题材料的纯熟运用看来,的确如此。第一乐章葬礼般的开场,尽管曲中仍有田园风味的短暂缓解,但是全曲弥漫着幻灭与受苦的感觉,有时表现为向生命的呐喊抗议,但多半为低调地痛苦抒发。之后是由单簧管奏出12/8拍的抒情第二主题,有西西裏舞曲的优雅曲风。第二乐章大提琴先以拨弦方式奏出开端的宣叙调,第一乐章主体为谐谑曲风的G大调常动曲。优美的慢闆乐曲,将交响曲的规模变成室内乐,而大提琴隻吟唱了一个小节。
在终乐章的回旋曲裏,埃尔加在世界大战前的豪气依稀可见,但稍纵即逝。该乐章回顾了前面乐章的一些旋律片段,然后迈向苦楚与认命的高潮,陪衬的装饰乐段取用了慢闆主题的乐句。埃尔加彷佛在向过去的快乐时光道再见,中断这段挽歌,全曲在回旋曲主题的临去秋波中嘠然而止。

埃尔加作为浪漫派作曲家终身不渝,虽然成熟时期茂盛的风华凝聚为老年人的深思和怀旧。他喜爱色彩变化,对乐队的驾驽在当时无出其左右。作品的充沛感情驳斥了某些人认为英国音乐应当稳重、含蓄的看法。
英国素来有合唱音乐的传统,从亨德尔到布裏顿的英国作曲家都是写作合唱曲的能手,埃尔加自然也是个中翘楚。《海景》是歌咏位于海上的英伦三岛种种细节小事,也让人一开始就感染到那种浪漫派雄伟气势下所要捕捉的海上风景。他的这部作品至今仍被认为是歌唱套曲中堪与舒伯特和舒曼的同类作品媲美之作。
詹妮特·蓓克(Janet Baker,1933-),英国女中音歌唱家。曾从伊赛普、圣.克勒和洛蒂.雷曼学习声乐。1959年获皇家音乐学院皇后奖。1965年成功地扮演了《狄东与伊尼阿斯》中的狄东,正式开始其歌唱生涯。后往返演出于英美各地及其他国家,是艺术歌曲和清唱剧演唱家,也曾在一些歌剧中任主角。1977年英国女王授予英国皇家妇女大绶勋章。蓓克的演唱高度重视词意曲情的诠释表达,嗓音优美,表情细致,吐字清晰。埃尔加唯一的声乐套曲《海景》正是因为蓓克夫人的这张经典录音而为人所知。

Notes and Editorial Reviews
This is a “Great Recording of the Century” if ever there was one. Recorded more than forty years ago it sounds as fresh as ever and, honestly, so much has been written about these readings that there is very little to add. I don’t know about the sales figures but I suspect that there must be a worn LP or a CD in practically every music-lover’s collection.
Those few who have resisted earlier bets should definitely hasten to the nearest record store now, especially since this latest incarnation also includes Sir John’s sparkling version of Cockaigne for good measure. With rasping trombones, blazing trumpets and the Philharmonia strings velvety but incisive this is as ebullient a reading as one can come across; a charming picture postcard of Edwardian London. It wouldn’t be Barbirolli if he didn’t linger lovingly over the lyrical pages. First and foremost, though, this is carefree and jolly music – Elgar at his most outgoing.
But of course it is for the other two works that most people will want this disc. Today Elgar’s Cello Concerto is a standard work in concert halls around the world, challenging even the Schumann and Dvo?ák concertos. I believe that this is to a certain extent thanks to the present recording. From the very start one can feel the almost transcendental rapport between the young soloist, barely turned twenty, and the ageing maestro. One can dip into the recording at almost any point and feel the magic. Take the opening of the third movement which is played with such simplicity that it feels like sacrilege even to breathe. Try also 9:10 in the last movement where the LSO strings swell so unforgettably. There is an inevitability about the whole performance that is not easy to analyse or rather, as with most great works of art, analysis often tends to obscure instead of clarify wherein the greatness lies. Why is Mona Lisa such an undisputed masterpiece? Both the painting and this recording go directly to the heart.
And that is exactly what Janet Baker’s singing of Sea Pictures also does. Back in the early 1970s I first heard Where Corals Lie on a Janet Baker sampler LP. I have long since lost count of how many times we played this song. Later, when we found out that it was actually part of a song-cycle, we enlarged our collection and found that the song made an even greater impression in its rightful setting. It is so magically performed here. It ranges from the frail Sea Slumber Song via the serene beauty of In Haven to the sacred solemnity of Sabbath Morning at Sea and the powerfully dramatic declamation of The Swimmer, all backed up by a Wagnerian orchestra. The purity of tone is amazing, absolutely even from top to bottom, from the hushed pianissimo to the full-voiced final pages of Sabbath Morning and most of the Swimmer.
Behind and above Jacqueline du Pré and Janet Baker looms Sir John’s spirit, loving and sensitive. Yes, indeed: Among the many jewels in the GROC series this one shines possibly brighter than any of the others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elgar Cello Concerto with DuPre April 10, 2000
By KH
Format:Audio CD
There is no greater recording of this piece--everything is flawless: peerless solo playing from DuPre, totally sympathetic accompaniment from Barbirolli, and recorded sound that sounds like it was done yesterday. The sheer emotion from both soloist and conductor is almost shocking--fierce, lamenting, nostalgic, wistful; whatever the piece calls for, they supply it. It's interesting how a very young soloist (DuPre was 20 when the recording was made) and an older conductor (Barbirolli was 66) should seem so sympatico with one another. Indeed, it's amazing how penetrating DuPre's interpretation is for someone so young--she doesn't just play the piece, she IS the piece!
The cello concerto is one of the 2 or 3 greatest ever composed. Sea Pictures is a lesser work--not a masterpiece, but the performance here is so definitive that Baker and Barbirolli almost make it SOUND like a masterpiece. Mediocre poetry, very good music, and a great recording. Again, the sound is first class.
For years, EMI had a series of recordings called "Great Recordings of the Century." This is surely one that earned the moniker.
