2. Concert Programme Two – A Mahler Journey


The latest instalment in MTT’s and SFS’s engaging Keeping Score series explores the life and works of Gustav Mahler, in two documentaries and two live performances.

Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony present the latest instalment in their acclaimed Keeping Score series, exploring the life and music of Gustav Mahler. In the year marking both the 100th anniversary of the composer’s death and the founding of the San Francisco Symphony, ‘Mahler: Origins and Legacy’, focuses on the enigmatic composer with two one-hour documentaries and two live performances. “Gustav Mahler was a visionary musician,” says MTT. “In his compositions he made reference to many styles, building his huge symphonies from materials abstracted from songs, dances and marches from many cultures. His symphonies, or worlds, as he called them, represent the many ways that people make music and why they make music. In Keeping Score: Mahler, we walk in his footsteps, visit the places and sounds that influenced his life.”

Keeping Score: Mahler is designed to engage, educate and entertain viewers of all musical backgrounds, from classical music enthusiasts to those hearing Mahler’s music for the first time. With MTT and SFS firmly established among the leading interpreters of Mahler’s music, these programmes are a fitting culmination to their decade-long Mahler recording project. To coincide with its release, MTT and SFS will embark on a three-week European tour performing Mahler’s works including Prague and Vienna where there will be special screenings of Keeping Score: Mahler.

“In general, Järvi favours broad tempos - perhaps a little too broad in the opening movement of the Second Symphony...But the First Symphony...is wholly successful in its balance of detail and flow, and the Second includes a lovely 'Urlicht' from Finnish mezzo-soprano Lilli Paasikivi.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2015 ****

“Something of their poise and sweetness endures in this new DVD and Blu-ray series in which the band is directed by its current chief, Paavo Järvi...Lilli Paasikivi provides an eloquent account of the 'Urlicht', her relatively operatic presentation underpinned by stringent vocal control.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2015

Mahler: Symphony No. 1

Mahler: Symphony No. 1

Recorded live at the Concert Hall of the Culture and Convention Centre Lucerne, 12 August 2009


Mahler:

Symphony No. 1 in D major 'Titan'

Prokofiev:

Piano Concerto No. 3 in C major, Op. 26

Yuja Wang (piano)


“Like a cry of Nature”: thus the expression mark that opens Gustav Mahler’s First Symphony – and the programme of the Festival 2009 which takes up Nature as its guiding theme. Mahler, in the First Symphony, shaped the “cry of nature” into a musical vision of an entire human life in four stages – from a spring-like upsurge of feelings through desire and suffering, to the end of earthly existence and the entrance into Paradise.

The opening treats listeners to a spectacular début as the twenty-two-year-old Chinese pianist Yuja Wang plays Sergei Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto. In her Lucerne appearances she displays the full range of her artistry as Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto demands not only lyricism and intimacy but brilliance and virtuosity.

Claudio Abbado has realised a dream with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra. The orchestra consists of an exclusive ensemble of handpicked musicians like Kolja Blacher and Sebastian Breuninger, Natalia Gutman, Clemens Hagen and Jens Peter Maintz.

Claudio Abbado is undeniably a supreme Mahler conductor and his best selling recordings with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra – symphonies No. 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7 (on Blu-ray No. 1, 2, 3 and 6) have already been released on EuroArts – have set new standards in interpretation of works by Gustav Mahler.

Symphony No. 10 in F sharp major

Clinton Carpenter completion


The Singapore Symphony Orchestra under Music Director Lan Shui release a unique commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Mahler's birth, the first known video release of Symphony No. 10 as completed by Clinton Carpenter, on DVD.

Commemorating the 150th anniversary of Gustav Mahler’s birth is a very special release from The Singapore Symphony Orchestra and their Music Director, Lan Shui: a performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 10 in the seldom heard completion by American musicologist Clinton Carpenter, on DVD. Recorded live in the spectacular Esplanade Concert Hall in Singapore, this is the first known video release of Carpenter’s realisation of Mahler’s enigmatic final symphony. Adding to the uniqueness of the release is Wu Xing (The Five Elements), a work by one of today’s leading Chinese composers, Chen Qi-gang.

Commissioned by Radio France in 1998, Qi-gang’s popular Wu Xing was born out of the idea of wanting to write five short pieces, each representing a different symbol. “From there,” states Qi-gang, “the idea of representing the Five Elements musically was born.”

Bonus features include interviews with Lan Shui and photographs from the Mahler 10 recording sessions. The printed booklet is in English, French, German, Japanese & Chinese while the interview is spoken in English and subtitled in Chinese, French, Japanese and German.

The American Record Guide has compared Lan Shui’s achievements with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra to those of George Szell in Cleveland and Simon Rattle in Birmingham. He has recorded over a dozen discs that have garnered wide-spread acclaim.

Bonus material:

“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
