All Music Guide - Blair Sanderson
A quick glance at Truls Mørk's large discography shows his versatility in all genres of cello music, with a strong focus on chamber works and contemporary compositions. Even so, this Erato box set consists entirely of his performances of cello concertos, recorded between 1991 and 2008. The cello concertos of C.P.E. Bach, Haydn, Schumann, Elgar, Dvorák, Shostakovich, Myaskovsky, and Britten represent the instrument's core repertoire, and other concerto-like works are included, such as Bruch's "Kol Nidrei," Bloch's "Schelomo," Tchaikovsky's "Rococo Variations," and Prokofiev's "Symphony-Concerto," as well as innovative modern works by Pärt, Dutilleux, and Kernis. Collaborating with conductors Bernard Labadie, Iona Brown, Paavo Järvi, Myung-Whun Chung, Mariss Jansons, Simon Rattle, and Eiji Oue, Mørk plays with his familiar combination of polished technique, gorgeous timbres, and flexible rhythms and dynamics, which have become identifiable qualities of his playing, though his rubato and dramatic gestures are more pronounced in Romantic works. Because of the different venues and recording dates, the sound quality is slightly variable though quite good throughout.
