Alfred Poell, Lorna Sydney

Vienna State Opera Orchestra / Felix Prohaska


2010 marked the 150th anniversary of Gustav Mahler’s birth and his followers will commemorate the centenary of his death in 2011.

Magdalen marks the event with the timely reissue of Eduard van Beinum’s glorious reading of Mahler’s most accessible symphony; every tempo is just right and the (Royal) Concertgebouw Orchestra, who have this music in their blood, display their love for the Fourth Symphony through their reading in particular of the sublime third movement.

As a bonus there are six songs from Vanguard’s landmark 1950 recording of Des Knaben Wunderhorn with Alfred Poell, a leading baritone at the Vienna State Opera and Lorna Sydney of the Volksoper. Felix Prohaska, perhaps better known as a baroque conductor, provides the perfect accompaniment to songs which encapsulate Mahler’s first period.

Netherlands Radio Choir & Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Mariss Jansons

2 SACDs & NTSC DVD

Recorded Live Concertgebouw Amsterdam 3, 4, 6 Dec 2009

The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is steadfastly progressing with its Mahler cycle under the direction of its chief conductor Mariss Jansons. Following its releases of the First, Fifth and Sixth Symphonies, the orchestra now turns its attention to the Second and Third Symphonies (scheduled releasedate: spring 2011).

Jansons and his Amsterdam-based orchestra performed the Symphonies Nos. 2 and 3 in the 2009–10 season as part of the full, chronological series of performances given by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Gustav Mahler’s symphonies to commemorate his 150th birthday and the 100th anniversary of his death. Once again, Jansons stands out in these performances with his astonishingly keen eye for the minutest of details. Like no other, Jansons possesses the ability to integrate all this into virtually infinite overarching climaxes that can make listening to Mahler’s symphonies such an exciting experience.

Bonus DVD - Audiovisual recording of the 3rd December performance Recorded by AVRO television (Director Joost Honselaar)

"Sometimes I do feel more extroverted when conducting Mahler, probably because the whole world is contained within his symphonies. From cradle to grave to rebirth, it’s all there. The Second Symphony is a wonderful example of that. With a composer like Tchaikovsky, it’s all about his own existence, his own difficulties and his own survival. I don’t mean to say that Tchaikovsky is limited, but Mahler succeeds in writing about himself and about the world.” “Obviously, I do hope I interpret Mahler’s symphonies better now than I did as a young man. But that’s not an easy thing to hear, at least not in my tempos, simply because I always choose the tempo I feel in the moment. In music, there’s no such thing as an absolute tempo. Even a composer’s metronome markings don’t tell the whole story. I learned that from Mravinsky. He would always shout, “You have to forget Shostakovich’s metronome.” That’s why I hate it when people insist that a particular performance was too slow or too fast. That’s just a subjective opinion – certainly not a universal truth. “This music is so rich that I hope I can bring audiences closer to heaven with it. I will have succeeded in my mission if listeners go home with the feeling of having been in another world for two hours.” Mariss Jansons

“The Royal Concertgebouw proves once again what a consummate body it can be when thoroughly engaged. Orchestral playing is immaculately voiced, the soundscape superbly balanced, the work's shape presented in one sweeping arc and steered like a freshly polished, custom-built limousine.” International Record Review, March 2011

“it's always a pleasure to hear warm Concertgebouw horns in noble ensemble, and the woodwind do beautiful things with the second of the heavenly visions in the [first] movement...Bernarda Fink is the model of feeling gravitas.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2011 ****

“[Jansons] give it urgency, propulsion and tautness of form...Bernarda Fink is outstanding in the "Urlicht", where an aching first oboe sounds almost like a mystical overtone of her voice...With Jansons the cataclysms have real clarity - you can hear what's going on without compromising the sense of spontaneous combustion.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2011

The Uppsala Chamber Orchestra is regarded by many as one of the finest chamber orchestras in Sweden. The orchestra is characterized by its flexibility in various styles, from early baroque to contemporary music, and its exquisite orchestral sound, both warm and lustrous. Paul Mägi took over from Howard Shelley in 2004 as the orchestra’s principle conductor. They perform on this new recording for Swedish Society, Mahler’s First Symphony.
