This 9 CD boxed set features live recordings of a selection of Mahler’s symphonies documenting the extraordinary relationship between Klaus Tennstedt and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, which was characterised by life-affirming concerts and a genuine connection between musicians, conductor and audience.

Tennstedt and the LPO recorded a full Mahler cycle in the studio for EMI, however this new boxed set features only live concert recordings, which really capture Tennstedt’s inimitable talent. The special relationship Tennstedt enjoyed with both the LPO and Mahler’s works result in an intensity and changeability in live concert hall performances that was impossible to replicate in the studio.

Each symphony in this boxed set has been previously released on the LPO label to critical acclaim. Exclusive to this collection however is an earlier performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, recorded in 1981, and starring soloists Heather Harper and Doris Soffel. Reflected in the recoring from 1981 is a conductor in good health, clearly revelling in his relationship with his ‘romantic orchestra’; while the 1989 performance features a last movement that is of truly epic proportions. What we hear is that what Tennstedt lost in physical wellbeing in the intervening years, he more than made up for in dark intensity and angst.

This premium boxed set includes a 45 page booklet featuring archive images, press cuttings and anecdotes as well as accompanying texts and programme notes. Packaged in a specially designed clamshell box, this premium product is a real collector’s item.

This collection features performances from star soloists including Thomas Hampson, Yvonne Kenny, Jard van Nes, Heather Harper, Doris Soffel, Júlia Várady, Jane Eaglen, Susan Bullock, Trudeliese Schmidt, Jadwiga Rappé, Kenneth Riegel, Eike Wilm Schulte and Hans Sotin.

Mahler: Symphony No. 10 in F sharp major

Mahler: Symphony No. 10 in F sharp major

(completed D Cooke, 1976)


ATMA presents Mahler’s Symphony No. 10 with the Orchestre Métropolitain under the baton of international superstar conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Made in the exceptional acoustics of La Maison symphonique in Montréal, where this symphony formed part of the 2014 season, this marks the first CD recording of Mahler’s Symphony No. 10 by a Canadian orchestra.

When Mahler died, only the first movement of the Symphony No. 10 was completely finished and orchestrated. Musicologist Deryck Cooke subsequently made a performing version of the unfinished draft left by the composer. According to Cooke, had Mahler completed the orchestration, he would have probably made endless changes to the score until he was completely satisfied. Symphony No. 10 remains a masterpiece, a legacy of inestimable value.

“the warm, intimate, slender sound is an appropriate reflection of the score Mahler left incompletely fleshed out, the bare bones of which Cooke mostly respects. Only occasionally do the big dissonances and lunges really jump out at you, but they're part of something bigger and stranger…[the] warm sound in Montreal's Maison symphonique helps preserve a very special world” BBC Music Magazine, February 2016 ****

Mahler: Symphony No. 4

Mahler: Symphony No. 4


With Gustav Mahler, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra has a very special relationship. The composer conducted the orchestra no less than 12 times and found in Amsterdam an understanding audience. Mahler's Fourth Symphony was premiered in Amsterdam by the composer, who conducted it twice, once before and once after the interval, so that the audience could get to know the work better. With this release, Mariss Jansons and the Concertgebouw orchestra add an impressive new chapter to the RCO’s recorded history of Mahler Symphonies.

“it's the subtler aspects, the perfect matching of instrumental entries and the sensual seamlessness of it all, which remain in the memory” Gramophone Magazine, November 2015

Mahler:

Symphonies 1-9 (complete)

Symphony No. 10 in F sharp major


The HR-Sinfonie Orchester has for decades been numbered among the world’s leading Mahler orchestras. Between 2008 and 2013 it gave its most recent Mahler cycle as part of the Rheingau Music Festival under its then principal conductor Paavo Järvi. The recordings were made in the unique space of the Basilica of Eberbach Monastery, in the magnificent ambiance of the Friedrich von Thiersch Hall at the Wiesbaden Kurhaus and in the outstanding acoustics of the Great Hall of the Alte Oper in Frankfurt. In all of these venues Mahler’s symphonies left a particularly fascinating impression.

Between 1980 and 1998 Simon Rattle conducted no less than 934 concerts with the CBSO. Together they performed works by many 20th-century composers, as well as established favourites, and gave a total of 16 world premieres. Rattle also made 69 recordings for EMI with the orchestra. This box brings together that recorded legacy, which includes pieces by composers pivotal to his work, such as Mahler, Sibelius and Szymanowski, as well as some of the new compositions he championed — Nicholas Maw’s Odyssy, Mark Anthony Turnage’s Momentum, Three Screaming Popes and Drowned Out, and Thomas Adès’ Asyla.

Peter Schreier – "Eight at 80" On July 29 this year, Peter Schreier celebrates his 80th birthday – an opportunity for the Berlin Classics label to honour the legendary singer with a generous box set. What concepts do we most readily associate with this outstanding musician? Being himself mattered to Peter Schreier, and he also liked to be easily understood. His pronunciation was always clear, but in addition to that, he sang the lyrics so as to make sense of them. Without ever sounding affected, he could bring out the inner meaning of a Schubert song as effectively as when he sang the part of a Bach Evangelist. In this sense, he was an unchallenged authority who was never dependent on pretentious gestures. This is surely one reason why he was so popular beyond the classical-music scene.

In the course of his dazzling operatic career, Peter Schreier made a special name for himself as an exceptional Mozart tenor. But operetta and folksong were also in his repertoire. His first love, however, was the art song, and he sang lieder of all periods up to the present day. Bach's works were another great love of his. Nor must we forget that from 1970 onwards, Peter Schreier had a conducting career. He still conducts occasionally, despite having bowed out as a singer in 2005.

The music on these eight CDs has been selected from the extensive Eterna archive in close consultation with Peter Schreier. It covers all the essential aspects of his repertoire, all the fields in which He laid down benchmark interpretations as a singer. The set includes a recording of Schubert lieder that is receiving its very first release on CD. The included DVD features a recent half hour interview with the singer, in which he looks back on a rich artistic life. Film excerpts of a 1971 lieder recital with Rudolf Buchbinder round off the DVD and the complete set – which will delight fans of the tenor and those keen to discover his many facets!

Haitink was 85 on 4 March 2014, and this set presents his six complete symphonic cycles by cornerstone classical composers: Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Mahler, Schumann and Tchaikovsky. Originally recorded for Philips, the CDs are now smartly re-packaged in a collectable cube, with a substantial 160-page booklet including extensive essays in 3 languages (English, French, German) and includes essays by authoritative writers such as William Kinderman (Beethoven), Michael Kennedy (Mahler) and John Warrack (Schumann and Tchaikovsky).

Every single symphonic cycle is played by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, recently voted by Gramophone Magazine as ‘The Greatest Orchestra in the World’. Dutch-born Bernard Haitink made his debut with the Concertgebouw Orchestra on 7 November 1956. From 1963 Haitink was Principal Conductor, a position he held for 25 years. An exclusive Philips artist for more than 30 years, Haitink remains fully active on the international concert scene. 2013/14 is the 60th season of his conducting career.

Mahler: Symphony No. 6 in A minor 'Tragic'

Mahler: Symphony No. 6 in A minor 'Tragic'

Live-Recording, Munich, Philharmonie im Gasteig, 20.- 22.03.2014


Daniel Harding follows his first CD recording on the BR-KLASSIK label (Schumann's Faust Scenes, BR-KLASSIK, 900122) with this live recording of Gustav Mahler's Sixth Symphony. Counting Sir Simon Rattle and Claudio Abbado among his teachers, since 2005 he has constantly made a name for himself with spectacular concerts with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks as a guest conductor. In this live recording of 2014 from Munich's Philharmonie im Gasteig, BR-KLASSIK presents one of Mahler's most unusual symphonies. Its dark and complex score contrasts starkly with what appeared on the surface to be a happy and carefree phase of the composer's life when he wrote it. The world-class conductor Daniel Harding demonstrates great artistic flexibility here; and with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, he encounters an ensemble that has been among the pioneers of Mahler performance ever since the Kubelík era of the 1960s.

“with the Scherzo and Finale Harding is well up there with the greats…above all it's the Bavarian Radio Symphony, with its fabulous first trumpet, baleful, full-toned tuba and winsome oboist, which collectively confirms itself as one of the top five orchestras in the world.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2015 ****

“There is much beautiful playing from the Bavarians, in the slow movement above all, assuming that you can accept an interpretation trading heartbreaking melancholy and human warmth for a kind of frozen poise…[Harding's] relatively deliberate, anti-rhetorical treatment certainly avoids the usual heaviness.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2015

Mahler: Symphony No. 7

Mahler: Symphony No. 7


“It is my best work, with a primarily cheerful character”. This was Gustav Mahler’s assessment of his Symphony No. 7, which was also highly regarded by Arnold Schoenberg, who said, “I had an impression of absolute peace based on artistic harmony. Something able to set me in motion without recklessly unsettling my center of gravity.” Riccardo Chailly, in his internationally acclaimed interpretations of Mahler’s symphonies – which he and the Gewandhaus Orchestra are bringing together in a complete cycle – focuses on the musical qualities of the works, eschewing false pathos and sentimentality while giving up none of the music’s dramatic intensity.

“Mahler’s Seventh Symphony, in which the composer pulled out all expressive stops and revealed himself to be an innovative modernist, has seldom been as persuasive and direct as in Chailly’s interpretation”, said the Frankfurter Neue Presse.

“the Leipzig players do [Chailly] proud. There are so many stunning solos, from tenor horn at the start to the first trumpet who never splits brilliant top notes in the finale, that names should have been given in the booklet…even in a field of remarkable performances - this of all symphonies requires a terrifying amount of preparation - there's none better than this one.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2016 *****
