Notes & Reviews:

With its PIEP (pronounced: "peep") show, the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie has completely dedicated itself to the topics of seduction and dance. The courtship dances of birds are not very distant from those of ours. It's no wonder that composers drew inspiration for their ballet music from the avian realm. This recording includes "Le Chant du Rossignol" by Stravinsky, "Prélude à l'Après-midi d'un Faune" by Debussy and "The Miraculous Mandarin" by Bartók.

Fanfare
The playing of individual members is well tuned, colorful, and accurate... performance remains a succession of beautiful solos... Oehms has done a fine job...

The program is filled with contrasts, and so too are the performances by the JDP. The group delivers a suave, fluid, almost weightless sense to Debussy's Prelude a l'apres-midi d'un faune. Their playing is technically superb, and under the leadership of conductor Andrey Boreyko, their interpretation is mature and rewarding. On the opposite end of the spectrum are the gratifying moments of vehemence found in Bartók's Suite from the Miraculous Mandarin. The JDP produces rhythmically tight, precise playing, a big, well-articulated sound, and an energetic drive that makes their recording of Bartók's work as satisfying as virtually any other.
