Suite des Quatre Chansons Japonaises


Ensemble Pegasus, Tokyo

The ensemble-playing of the 22 musicians is characterized by an irreproachable intonation and rhythmical precision, but primarily by their wide range in dynamics, articulation and expressiveness (the pianissimo-nuances of the ensemble are breath-taking!). With his great knowledge about instruments, the band-leader, professor Yamamoto, is an outstanding arranger and knows precisely how to utilize the capacities of his band-members. Therefore, it has been possible for the ensemble to enter into and incorporate genres and styles beyond the conventional brass-band repertoire. “Tailor-made” arrangements of symphonic music by Mahler, organ-music by Brahms, and a choir-piece by Bruckner sound surprisingly idiomatic and, for a while, make the listener forget about authenticity and the original instrumentations! Even prof. Yamamoto’s own entertaining rhapsody of Japanese childrens’ tunes as well as such well-known lighter genres that used to be played in transcriptions for brass-bands, like Strauss waltzes and polkas, are performed by Pegasus, with a sort of symphonic feeling, in a refined and enriched manner.

Der Abschied (Das Lied von der Erde)


Maria Forsström (contralto), Johannes Landgren (organ)

”Mahler Songs” is an enormous transcription project, which has taken two years to complete. The original orchestration is here re-arranged for a grand symphonic organ. The intention is to get to know how the beyond-the-world aspect in Mahlers music and song texts can be deepened through the encounter with the sacred room and the organ as a sacred instrument. The recording has been made with 10 microphones in a surround system in the Vasa Church, Göteborg, Sweden. The fantastic orchestral organ of this church was built in 1909 and has been fundamental for awakening the idea and inspiring its fulfillment.

Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde

Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde


Cornelia Kallisch (mezzo) & Siegfried Jerusalem (tenor)

Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg, Michael Gielen

SWR music continues their critically acclaimed Mahler cycle with Das Lied von der Erde. The Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg have joined forces with two of the great Mahler singers of our time, Cornelia Kallisch and Siegfried Jerusalem.

“What has been released is actually an amalgamation of two session exactly a decade apart...[Kallisch] evinces real finesse in the fourth, with its evocations of beauty and enchantment...Yet this is ultimately Gielen's 'performance', and those familiar with his Mahler will encounter the expected combination of formal precision and expressive spontaneity here.” International Record Review, July 2011

“Gielen reveals unsuspected riches in Mahler's textures, Jerusalem excels as the drunkard” BBC Music Magazine, December 2011 ***
