Jan Vogler’s Stradivarius has a tone so rich it’s almost indecent. His playing is quick and supple and the New York studio is appropriately resonant. Among several sets this year, these suites have easily the best sound. Sadly, Sony don’t both to credit the studio team.
The Korean soloist Julius-Jeongwon Kim is a tad hesitant and heavy in some entries, overwhelmed perhaps by the responsibility of introducing a piano where no piano was meant to go. But he has technique to spare and finds his high moments in roller-coaster riffs and dashes. The middle movement opens with one of Rachmaninov’s mst famous tunes and is, as ever, irresistible. The LSO clarinet (I can’t remember who it was) deserves an OBE in the next Queen’s Honours List. The companion work is Shostakovich’s second concerto, easy on the fingers, competently done.
At the open-air beach performances, the Britten-Pears Orchestra was beamed in from indoors. The mix here is imperceptible and the sound unobtrusive engineer Mike Hatch deserves a credit twice the size and conductor Stueart Bedford pulls off an extraordinary feat of coherence and endurance. But it’s Oke who makes the case for Peter Grimes and steals the show. There used to be two great Grimes on record: Peter Pears and Jon Vickers. Now there are three.

The C-minor trio is an amiable, gregarious piece, redolent of long sunsets in Rio de Janeiro with something tall and exotic on your café table let your imagination roam. Insubstantial it may be, but for sybaritic pleasure it is hard to beat.
