Kurt Sanderling conducts Mahler & Schumann

Kurt Sanderling conducts Mahler & Schumann

Royal Albert Hall, London, 29 July 1988


Mahler:

Das Lied von der Erde

Carolyn Watkinson & John Mitchinson

Schumann:

Symphony No. 4 in D minor, Op. 120


Some of the greatest conductors have worked with the BBC Philharmonic – Sanderling (b.1912), conducting here in 1987, knew the orchestra well having first conducted them some 13 years previously when they were known as the BBC Northern Symphony Orchestra.

Sanderling has had an illustrious career with orchestras such as the Leningrad Philharmonic, Berlin Symphony Orchestra, Dresden Staatskapelle and the Philharmonia, retiring only 9 years ago.

The BBC Legends recording of his Mahler 9 with the BBC Philharmonic from 1982 received excellent reviews.

John Mitchinson, often chosen for the tenor role in Das Lied von der Erde, performed the work many times with the BBC Philharmonic to great acclaim, with two BBC Legends recordings featured in the Penguin Guide – ‘his voice focuses ever more securely through the work with many cleanly ringing top notes’‘John Mitchinson is here at his finest, contrasting his firm, heroic tone in the first song against delicate half-tones, using his head-voice.’

Known for enjoying live performances and having an affinity for late Mahler, Sanderling’s reading of Das Lied von der Erde is inherently musical.

This is the first DVD release of this material.

“Sanderling's Schumann's Fourth Symphony is robust, his Mahler Lied von der Erde (Mitchinson and Watkinson in marvellous voice) strangely Olympian.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2012 ****

“Sanderling makes it all seem relatively effortless, elevating Mahler to the proverbial Olympian heights with no visible means of support...[he] is blessed with singers highly compatible with his interpretation. The versatile tenor John Mitchinson soars comfortably even in the peice's highest registers, and mezzo-soprano Carolyn Watkinson - best known for singing Baroque repertory - brings to Mahler a comparable sense of musical and emotional transparency.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2012

Mahler: Symphony No. 9

Mahler: Symphony No. 9

Rec. December 7, 1987, Laeizhalle, Hamburg


The Ninth is an unusual symphony. The scheme of two slow outer movements and two fast ones in the middle is not in accordance with tradition. The keys of the four movements - D major, C major, A minor, D flat major - are at best vaguely related; nor did Mahler specify the key of the Ninth Symphony. The free, open form of the individual movements with their broadly arching structures is also confusing. Adorno once remarked that one must listen to this symphony "from the bottom to the top", ignoring formal expectations and concentrating on the individual motifs which develop, "as with a narrative when one does not know how it ends." Certain commentators have seen a novel-like structure in Mahler's symphonies, and a narrative model must be applied to the Ninth in particular - one that ends openly and uncertainly instead of affirmatively in a recapitulation

Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5 in D minor, Op. 47

Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5 in D minor, Op. 47


Berliner Sinfonie-Orchester, Kurt Sanderling

One of the key symphonies by one of the most important composers of the 20th century – the Fifth Symphony of Dmitry Shostakovich is a symphonic masterpiece that is of undiminished relevance today. In its interpretation by Kurt Sanderling, it found a congenial realization whose validity was acknowledged by the composer himself.

Barbara Sanderling, BSO double-bassist from 1961 to 1986 and the conductor’s wife, notes that the Fifth Symphony was “part of his life” in a very special way. Kurt Sanderling had conducted the first revival of the work after the renewed “ostracism” (of Shostakovich’s music) of 1948. He conducted the BSO in the symphony for the first time in October 1961 and kept it in the repertory for over twenty years before the recording sessions documented here took place. Frau Sanderling remembers how her husband as principal conductor – drawing on the “bonus of age and experience given him by his life and career” – developed an unbelievable understanding of this music. It was providential that Shostakovich “expressly confirmed what Kurt Sanderling had read into the music”.
