"It’s different having best friends together. Everyone is there to enjoy making music, to take pleasure, to play with enthusiasm, with passion. They are prepared to do any crazy thing I ask them for the sake of the music. To fly, to walk through fire." (Claudio Abbado)

“Mahler three of peerless concentration and shape. ...Claudio Abbado never forces the expressivity of the superband Lucerne Festival Orchestra; yet every colour and texture shines through. …the filming of the orchestra is faultless.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2008 *****

“This truly is a genuine archive treasure” Classic FM Magazine

“Abbado draws a reading of such commitment, technical polish and interpretative acuity - wondrously linear and yet emotionally true, without a shred of vulgarity - that you can only marvel at Mahler's musical-metaphysical vision and Abbado's sensitive shaping of it.” Financial Times

“Abbado's performance of this work at last year's Proms was the highlight of the season: all the reviewers were unanimous. Illness prevented him from then conducting it in New York (Boulez took over) but now we can see the 2007 Lucerne concert performance and marvel at its comprehensiveness and refinement. This really is the world's greatest chamber group, as Abbado intended it to be!” Hi-Fi News

“One of the greatest Mahlerians alive today, Abbado conducting Mahler's Third Symphony with his own Lucerne Festival Orchestra is not to be missed. Whether you enjoy watching concerts on DVD is a matter largely of personal taste, but those wanting a close-up on Abbado's elegant fingers won't be disappointed. Mahler's Third charts a journey to transcendence from the origins of life - given primordial terror by the LFO brass, every solo amid the immaculate ensemble sound cherished with Abbado's grasp of overarching Mahlerian narrative. Anna Larsson is ethereal in the fourth movement's Nietzschian text, the finale a sublimely convincing interpretation of the transcendence of love.” The Times, 16th August 2008

ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, Wiener Singakademie, Soloists of the Tölzer Knabenchor, Cornelius Meister

Mahler's cantata Das klagende Lied continues to be a rarity on concert programmes, despite the fact that the composer is recognised today as one of music history's most preeminent figures, many of whose works form part of the standard repertoire. The significance of this large-scale symphonic choral piece is that it represents the foundation of Mahler’s more widely-known compositions. As such, it is a key component in understanding Mahler and interpreting his works. It could be said that Das klagende Lied represents a summary of all Mahler's creative output up to that point in his life. It also foreshadows the works that were to come.
