AllMusic Notice by James Manheim [-]
The chicly played Sibelius recordings by conductor Leif Segerstam and the Turku Philharmonic Orchestra have often been revelatory, not least in the much-neglected bailiwick of the composer«s theater music. Segerstam set much of keen on in the composer»s chance music, the harbinger of the soundtracks Sibelius might well have written if he had lived in our at the same time. But Scaramouche, Op. 71, composed in 1913, is something else again: it is music for a pantomime, a character not much in grounds for today (although it certainly has affinities with the music video). The fight of the mostly wordless work together (there were a few verbal passages, excised in this interpretation) was ceaseless, and so, thus, was Sibelius« music. It is thus a open music of overdone music, of which there is very little in the Sibelius catalog, and for the most section it has more to do with the developmental viewpoint of the symphonies than it does with the chance music scores. Consider the unblock adumbrations of the Symphony No. 7 in C pre-eminent, Op. 105, not written until some years later (test the little «Andantino» article from Act II, Background 3, run down 13). The music is closely tied to the fight of the pantomime, which is summarized in the booklet notes, but it can also counter on its own. Warmly recommended to those who have been collecting Segerstam»s whole series, for it shows a aspect of Sibelius that the other entries have not shown. Scaramouche has scarcely ever, if ever, been recorded in its undiminished invent, and it's something of a distraught masterwork.
