Barenboim has many of the attributes of a major Schumann conductor. [He] gives ample reign to the tremendous high spirits of this Spring symphony. This is outstanding Schumann playing by any standards. -Gramophone

Recordings of Die Meistersinger do not grow on trees; more than any other of Wagner’s operas it almost defines “festival opera”. Its four-hour-plus length is just the start: Sachs is an incredibly long role, and the character is complicated (moreso, say, that Gurnemanz in Parsifal–another endurance contest–who is religiously tunnel-visioned); Walther’s biggest moment comes at the opera’s very end and simply cannot be anything but great; Eva is sweet without being cloying and while the role is lyrical, it’s not easy to pin down dramatically; Beckmesser must be foolish but not grotesque; the orchestra is huge, and if the chorus, orchestra, and soloists get through the first act finale with flying colors, they still have the second act’s, which is a true challenge for any conductor to keep both together and clear.

More than 120 years after the death of Johannes Brahms, the answer to this question would seem to be a foregone conclusion. Not even Arnold Schoenberg’s essay “Brahms the Progressive”, famed at least for its title, has done anything substantial to change it. Schoenberg pointed to the asymmetry and irregularity of Brahms’s phrase structure, his stern adherence to and sharpening of Beethoven’s technique of dislodging the “strong” beats until the rhythm as we previously knew it fully dissolves. What we hear as downbeats are more likely to be upbeats, and vice versa.

Moving into the 20th century, we have an excellent new version of Prokofiev’s The Gambler that unerringly captures the conflicting personal and social forces that shove the plot along. Kristine Opolais and Misha Didyk are magnificent as the young lovers caught up in this Dostoevskian web of psychological self-destruction, erotic brutality, and financial panic. And if Barenboim’s accompaniment is sometimes on the thick side, the overall effect is so riveting that it’s hard to complain. (Peter J. Rabinowitz)
