Mahler: Symphony No. 8 in E flat major 'Symphony of a Thousand'

Mahler: Symphony No. 8 in E flat major 'Symphony of a Thousand'


Gustav Mahler’s 8th Symphony breaks the boundaries of the symphonic form in a world-embracing gesture. Riccardo Chailly is one of the staunchest performers of this work, and therefore it seemed appropriate in many ways that he chose this work for his inaugural concert as Claudio Abbado’s successor and new music director of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra. The artistic statement was combined with a deeply personal conviction: it should be a “tribute to Claudio,” the highly esteemed friend and colleague to whom Chailly, as he emphasizes, owes very much. On 12 August 2016, Claudio Abbado’s unfinished Mahler cycle with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra was completed in a breathtaking performance of the Mahler 8th, simultaneously heralding in a new era in Lucerne.

“His approach is characteristically thoughtful...As you would expect from a handpicked band, the orchestral playing is consistently glorious. The contribution of the combined choirs is authoritative and there is a fine team of soloists…Released on DVD without frills, it is an impressive document.” The Guardian, 22nd June 2017

“As you would expect from a handpicked band, the orchestral playing is consistently glorious. The contribution of the combined choirs is authoritative and there is a fine team of soloists, in which the soprano Juliane Banse, the contralto Sara Mingardo and the tenor Andreas Schager stand out” Financial Times, 23rd June 2017 ****

“This one teems with life. Perhaps this is down to unique, temporal make-up of the orchestra; perhaps the sense of occasion, dedicated as it was to the memory of Claudio Abbado an neatly completing the older conductor's compelling cycle.” Classical Music, August 2017 *****

“This is a very good account of Mahler’s Eighth; Riccardo Chailly has opened his Lucerne tenure in fine style and paid a suitable tribute to his illustrious predecessor. He controls the performance expertly, getting a splendid response from his players and singers.” MusicWeb International, August 2017

Nikolaus Harnoncourt is one of the few true stars among conductors worldwide. Performances like the New Year’s Concert of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra enable him to reach an audience of millions, displaying the characteristic passion and fiery intensity that identify him, first and foremost, as a true servant of his art.

His first opera production dates from 1971, when he conducted Monteverdi‘s 'Il ritorno d‘Ulisse in patria' at the Theater an der Wien, and soon after this he embarked on a fruitful cooperation with Jean-Pierre Ponnelle at the Zurich Opera.

Harnoncourt has maintained his close connection with the Zurich Opera to this day. Arthaus Musik presents three of his legendary Zurich productions in this unique Opera Collection. Staged by famous directors Ruth Berghaus, Jürgen Flimm and Martin Kušej, with renowned stars of the opera scene as Camilla Nylund, Jonas Kaufmann, Juliane Banse and Peter Seiffert, these recordings are true highlights of Maestro Harnoncourt‘s work.

Includes an introduction to Schoenberg’s Pelleas and Melisande by Alberica Archinto and Elli Stern, offering fascinating insights into this unparalleled composition.

Bach, J S: Christmas Oratorio, BWV248

Bach, J S: Christmas Oratorio, BWV248


Juliane Banse, Cornelia Kallisch, Markus Schäfer (Evangelist), Robert Swensen [tenor], Thomas Quasthoff [bass] & Martin Dürr (Echo)

Windsbacher Knabenchor & Münchner Bachsolisten, Karl-Friedrich Beringer

Animated, lively and with verve Karl-Friedrich Beringer makes Bach jubilatory: 'Resound timpani! Resound trumpets! Rejoice, exult!'

The Windsbacher Knabenchor (Windsbach Boys Choir) and the Münchner Bachsolisten (Munich Bach Soloists) should be counted, with this recording, amongst the most outstanding interpreters of the Christmas Oratorio.

The production is enhanced by the prominent participation of soloists Juliane Banse, Cornelia Kallisch, Markus Schäfer, Robert Swensen and Thomas Quasthoff. Bach’s oeuvre takes centre stage and comes to beautiful bloom. At the end of 2011, Karl-Friedrich Beringer has announced his retirement as director of the choir after 34 years. Winter & Winter has chosen this recording as a highlight of his work, newly mastered and in refined sound quality. This album cannot be recommended highly enough to friends of festive Christmas music.

“The light, bouncy sounds of choir and orchestra are among the performance’s best delights. Soloists vary: Thomas Quasthoff, caught early in his career, is emotionally circumspect in his bass arias, but Evangelist Markus Schäfer never fails.” The Times, 23rd December 2011 ***

“Around 80 trebles and teenagers with stark modern instruments communicate infectious energy.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2012 ***

The 12 Cellos of the Berlin Philharmonic

Who knew that the solid, staid old Berlin Philharmonic had such a groovy group of swingers in its cello section? One of them plays the maracas during the rests in his part, others slap their instruments with abandon, and some of them even shout at appropriate moments: if this makes them sound like trainspotters letting their hair down, it's not meant to. This recording of South American and South American-inspired music is full of joy from beginning to end, and played with the kind of accuracy other ensembles only dream of. The mood ranges from sultry and sweaty (Kaiser-Lindemann's Brazilian Variations) through coolly intellectual (the Fugue from Bachianas Brasileiras No. 1) to pure sunshine (Burt Bacharach's "South American Getaway"). The arrangements are models of their kind, and the cellists respond to their challenges with bravura and passion--at times creating sounds remarkably like a bandonéon, at others producing perfect harmonics in octaves or just singing out with pure joy. Irresistibly seductive.
