Sibelius: Symphonies Nos 3 and 6; Stravinsky: Violin Concerto – Northern Sinfonia, Zehetmair

‘Starting with Sibelius 3 we soon discover that Zehetmair favours brisk tempi and matches this with an unsentimental interpretative eye. Aided by Avie’s Simon Fox-Gal we are treated to a broad and bold dynamic range. This is striking in a barely audible pianissimo. It delivers a wholly delightful and intimate audio embrace. This pleasingly enhances the woodwind who play such a central part in this work as much as the massed strings are central to the Sixth. To sample the pleasures of subtlety and pianissimo try the dialogue between strings and solo woodwind about three minutes into the first movement. The Third Symphony receives a fine reading matched up with a transparently honest recording. It is a common feature with AV 2125 that Zehetmair also features here in the role as violin soloist – this time in a taut, resonant, stingingly abrasive and crystal-cut reading of the succinct Stravinsky concerto – very much in the Pulcinella mode. After the chiselled outlines of the Stravinsky we encounter Sibelius 6 which comes as a delightful contrast. Again Zehetmair favours a faster tempo. As expected this lovely work of long singing lines is given a rather objective spin' Zehetmair positively bubbles through the Poco vivace. The audio team catch the harp pulsation at about 1.10 in the finale in a way I have never previously heard. They even give it something of the quality of a zither – or should I say kanteletar. Fascinating readings presented to us by Avie.’
