Ruby Hughes (soprano) & Joseph Middleton (piano)

Soprano Ruby Hughes releases her debut solo recital disc with pianist Joseph Middleton, an anthology of night songs by Mahler, Britten, Berg and Schubert. Ruby Hughes introduces the programme:

I have always been fascinated by the various moods of night, from the astonishing drama of storms and sunsets to the tranquillity of darkness: a time for contemplation, meditation, sleep and dreams.

Night has at times evoked darker, more foreboding thoughts and philosophical questions concerning death and existence. Alone at night, the state of mind can be awestruck and frightening under the dark canopy of the universe. At other times it feels safe and calm.

These four composers (Schubert, Mahler, Berg and Britten) have been favourites of mine from a very young age. I love their melodies and modulations, their subtlety and passion as well as their genius for setting and enhancing profoundly moving words. They all composed so lyrically for the voice. Their night songs have at times an otherworldly sense of mystery, as in for example Mahler’s Urlicht, Schubert’s Im Abendrot and Abendstern, Berg’s Warm die Lüfte and Britten’s Um Mitternacht. Their songs also work brilliantly when programmed together, revealing influences such as Schubert’s on Mahler, and Schubert’s and Berg’s on Britten.

Alban Berg’s songs achieve a wonderful blend of his modernist musical language with all he inherited from the romantics (i.e. Schubert through to Mahler). Britten too has the power to combine ancient and modern influences to superb effect.

A BBC New Generation artist in 2011–2013, Ruby Hughes held a Borletti Buitoni Trust award, was shortlisted for a 2014 Royal Philharmonic society Music award, and was winner of the first prize and audience prize at the 2009 London Handel competition.

Mahler: Symphony No. 1 in D major 'Titan'

Mahler: Symphony No. 1 in D major 'Titan'

Live Recording, Munich, Herkulessaal 26.–27.06.2014


The music of Gustav Mahler, the Late Romantic composer on the threshold of modernity, has been a firm part of the repertoire of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks ever since the early 1960s, when the orchestra's Mahler tradition was established by its former chief conductor Rafael Kubelik. BR-KLASSIK has already released Mahler's First (as part of an audiobook CD) and Seventh Symphonies with Mariss Jansons, as well as the Ninth with Bernard Haitink. The young Canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin is making his debut here on the BR-KLASSIK label with Mahler's First Symphony. He is one of the most important representatives of a younger generation of conductors and, since his European debut in 2004, has already conducted such renowned orchestras as the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic. Yannick Nézet-Séguin is currently chief conductor of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Booklet contains original symphony programme explanations by Mahler.

“The Bavarians, with their long experience of performing Mahler, deliver superbly precise and expressive playing for their guest conductor…the performance of the finale in particular marries discipline with power and impetus, bringing the symphony to a rousing conclusion…there’s a lot to admire in this new recording” Gramophone Magazine, May 2016

Ria Bollen (contralto)

Ria Bollen, contralto. “Chi farà che torni in vita? Chi al mio cor la renderà?” “Who can bring her back to life? Who can return her to my heart?” Orfeo sings in Gluck's masterpiece Orfeo ed Euridice. That is precisely the purpose of this cd: keeping alive the memory of the golden voice of the Belgian (Flemish) contralto Ria Bollen (b. 1942 in Sint-Truiden). It is possible to hear her again thanks to the historic live recordings on this CD. They bridge past and present, thus making everything present. This CD gathers a selection of a large number of live recordings made both at home and abroad, a selection that takes into account both the quality and the diversity of recorded performances. The time limit of a CD forced its compilers to make choices they sometimes found hard, compelling them to neglect certain aspects of Ria Bollen’s art. Ria Bollen deliberately decided to be a concert singer and to forgo opera, with one exception, the role of Geneviève in Claude Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande, in a production of the Brussels Royal Theater of la Monnaie/de Munt (at the time directed by Maurice Huisman). She also sang the part of Orfeo in a few concert performances of Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice.

Singing baroque, romantic and contemporary vocal music, including the lied repertoire, both well-known and less familiar, ensured her an international reputation. But she never forgot nor neglected the works of composers of her own country, like Peter Benoit (1834–1901), August De Boeck (1865–1937), Edgar Tinel (1854–1912), Lodewijk Mortelmans (1868–1952) and many others.

Mahler: Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection'

Mahler: Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection'

arrangement for piano four hands by Bruno Walter


Maasa Nakazawa (piano) & Suhrud Athavale (piano)

World-renowned conductor Bruno Walter was particularly well acquainted with Gustav Mahler’s work, and was employed as his assistant at the Hamburg Opera at the time Mahler’s Second Symphony was given its première in Berlin. Walter prepared his precise and imaginative “reduction for piano” soon afterwards and in close collaboration with the composer. Bruno Walter regarded the ‘Resurrection’ Symphony as one of his mentor’s key works, from the “dramatic struggles” of the first movement to the “lightning bolt” that inspired its sublime choral finale.
