Marce & Dance 2008 is a celebration of the 75th birthday (June) of Claudio Abbado.

With a program that moves gracefully from Mozart, Schubert, and Beethoven to Berlioz, Hindemith, and Prokofiev, Abbado creates a collection filled with charming contrasts and piquant juxtapositions. Anyone looking for a disc of classical music at its most approachable and enjoyable will surely get pleasure from this release, but those who have known and admired Abbado's work for the past 40 years may find it just a bit sad. Deutsche Grammophon's digital sound is typically clear, crisp, and detailed.
