Mahler: Symphony No. 10 in F sharp major

Mahler: Symphony No. 10 in F sharp major

Completed D. Cooke, 1976


“You may be surprised by Thomas Dausgaard’s force and conviction as a Mahlerian. This exceptional issue from the Pacific Northwest ought to be a game-changer for all concerned” Gramophone Magazine, September 2016

“What a fabulous string section this orchestra has - violins absolutely fearless in Mahler’s exposed high lines, cellos and basses like rich velvet. They’re totally in sympathy with Dausgaard’s very human take on the work. The first movement’s screaming discord is terrifying, but what lingers is how this conductor leads us out of the shadows.” MusicWeb International, October 2016

“You will have to hunt far and wide for a finer-sounding recording of Mahler's final Tenth Symphony than this one...It is the beauty of the symphony's lyrical unfolding, and the gut-wrenching contrast between it and the elements that break it apart, that make Seattle Symphony's recording of Mahler's magnificent farewell a must-hear.” Stereophile (USA), 13th July 2016

“Here, by an exceptional command of long-term tempo relationships Dausgaard manages to unify the symphony into single whole. Without loss of intensity, it emerges as not only a psychological document but an orchestral classic – fully realised by the Seattle Symphony, long an adventurous outfit but here sounding like one of the world’s great orchestras” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2016 ****

Mahler: Symphony No. 10 in F sharp major

Mahler: Symphony No. 10 in F sharp major

realised & elaborated by Yoel Gamzou


International Mahler Orchestra, Yoel Gamzou

Gustav Mahler’s Symphony no.10 is the last and only unfinished symphony in his complete oeuvre. On 5 September 1910 Mahler wrote his last notes: exactly 100 years later, the 23-year-old conductor and composer Yoel Gamzou presented with great success his new reconstruction of this extraordinary work. The world première with the International Mahler Orchestra took place at the Ryckestrasse synagogue in Berlin as part of the Jewish Cultural Days 2010.

Yoel Gamzou first came in contact with the Adagio from Mahler’s unfinished 10th Symphony when he was about 12 or 13 years old, whilst fishing curiously amidst a jungle of books and scores in a local library.

“Already at first glance, it was obvious to me that this symphony has – or indeed would have had, considering it was almost lost and forgotten for decades – a unique meaning in musical history. When I discovered that it was only the first movement of a large unfinished symphony, I instantly started investigating.

I became indescribably fascinated and intrigued, in fact hypnotized, by the sheer magnitude of meaning and content hiding within this manuscript. It was immediately clear to me that the piece was entirely thought-through and that the meaning behind this hurried testament was an almost unbearably painful albeit thoroughly planned legacy. It seemed like the sketch was staring at me demanding to be heard, like a message in a bottle that hasn't really been found, let alone entirely understood, for almost a century.” Yoel Gamzou

“though what Gamzou has done may sometimes seem superfluous, it never traduces the spirit of Mahler’s original...Mahlerians will certainly want to hear what this all adds up to, even though they will probably revert to their own favourite performances of the Cooke version afterwards.” The Guardian, 31st August 2016 ***

“Gamzou’s “realisation and elaboration” of Mahler’s 10th is self-avowedly more reliant on instinct than on meticulous scholarship. Less ethereal and more given to opulent textures than the commonly performed text by Deryck Cooke, it sounds like the impressively bold work of someone gifted yet young.” Sunday Times, 18th September 2016

“Every serious Mahlerian will want to hear this.” MusicWeb International, 24th October 2016

“Worth hearing, but no real challenge to earlier recensions of Mahler’s sketches” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2016 ***

“Fine sound courtesy of Dabringhaus und Grimm in Berlin’s Philharmonie. The playing of Gamzou’s own international band is heartfelt, enthusiastic, not invariably tidy” Gramophone Magazine, November 2016

Maureen Forrester was one of the few renowned alto singers during the period after 1945. In her singing, fullness and euphony of sound was combined with an extraordinary beauty of line and expression of the very greatest refinement.

Encouraged and supported by Bruno Walter, she became one of the most important Mahler interpreters of her time, performing with all the great conductors from Fritz Reiner to Lorin Maazel and from George Szell to Zubin Mehta.

These recordings, released here for the first time, document her activities in the area of Lieder with piano accompaniment to an extent unparalleled elsewhere and include her collaboration with the legendary accompanist Michael Raucheisen. The repertoire ranges from the pre-Bach era and central contributions to the genre - by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Wagner and Mahler - to Britten and Poulenc.

Bamberger Symphoniker, Bamberg Symphony Choir, Tschechischer Philharmonischer Chor & Windsbacher Knabenchor, Jonathan Nott

Jonathan Nott and his Bamberger Symphoniker have added a new chapter to the performance history of Mahler symphonies. In every respect, the conductor’s individual stamp and the orchestra’s characteristic sound do justice to this symphonic universe. These dedicated artists master the orchestral virtuosity and the fine-tuned inner structures, as well as the great dramatic outbursts in the monumental sections.

The recording breathes new life into Gustav Mahler’s visions, his creativity, inner conflicts, yearning and joyful music-making. Human tragedy and divine comedy are united in a unique work of art: Dall’Inferno al Paradiso.

Mahler: Symphony No. 9

Mahler: Symphony No. 9

Berlin Philharmonie, 2010


Gustav Mahler’s colossal Ninth Symphony, the culmination of the Austrian composer’s achievements, in a landmark live performance from the Berliner Philharmonie. This concert formed part of The Mahler Project: Daniel Barenboim and Pierre Boulez, two friends and very different world-class conductors, tackling all nine completed symphonies of Mahler with the Staatskapelle Berlin. Before embarking on this journey Barenboim and Boulez entered into a long period of reflection and discussion. For the accompanying documentary, director Christoph Engel compiled a rich selection of statements, conversations and musical excerpts by both conductors that provides a guide to the world of Mahler’s towering symphonies.

BONUS: THE MAHLER PROJECT - Daniel Barenboim and Pierre Boulez working on the symphonies of Gustav Mahler.

“An impulsive first movement with forensic attention to the grim reapers of the wind section…and a series of scarifying climaxes, the last and biggest of which is truly a ride to the abyss…[this] reading is the more radical for its ‘life is too short’ urgency. The playing is predictably superb” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2016

This 23 CD box set bears witness to Mehta’s work in the recording studio for Decca between May 1965 (Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony with the Wiener Philharmoniker) and July 1980 (Tchaikovsky’s Capriccio italien with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra). The bulk of the recordings date from the 1970s, and the period of white-hot inspiration when Mehta achieved and consolidated his international reputation. There are textbook performances here: the orchestral conflicts found Mahler’s Second Symphony, for example, or the visionary build-up of internal tension in the final movement of the same composer’s Third; the highly individual manner in which Mehta plumbs the depths of Beethoven’s Seventh, and the cycle of Schubert symphonies; the macabre echo of the Trauermarsch in Mahler’s Fifth, and the rational and yet sensuous quality of Mehta’s responsiveness to Strauss.

Andris Nelsons conducted the Lucerne Festival Orchestra for the third time in August 2015, the orchestra’s second summer without founder and guiding spirit Claudio Abbado. The first half of his concert was already a highlight: the baritone Matthias Goerne seemed completely at home in a selection of songs from Des Knaben Wunderhorn. His warm, dark voice allows him to capture the somber and tragic atmosphere of this music like no one else. Its shaded timbre is most perfectly suited to the work’s melancholy and nocturnal moods, where one can directly experience how an artist of this caliber can bring music to the edge of the abyss. The Lucerne Festival Orchestra, renowned for its unique Mahler sound, had last played Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 in the summer of 2004 with Abbado – a flowing, transparent, and ethereal interpretation. Nelsons finds a completely different approach to the work. His Mahler is fiery, expansive, and powerful. In spite of the introductory funeral march, his reading is more positive than tragic, radiating an intense vitality. It is breathtaking to observe the orchestra’s response to Nelsons’s energetic, physical, and emotional conducting style. The relationship between orchestra and conductor is one of giving and taking, nothing else.

“A high- octane, viscerally intense performance of the fifth symphony beautifully filmed and recorded here for Accentus” Classical Music, October 2016 *****

“[The Lucerne Festival Orchestra’s] magnificent playing here is suffused with the memory of their creator, Claudio Abbado, and re-energised with the new-found dynamism of the visionary Latvian…Nelsons and his orchestra are predictably joyous and the coming-together of the earlier chorale and delirious helter-skeltering strings is ridiculously exciting” Gramophone Magazine, September 2016
