Mahler: Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection'

Mahler: Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection'


Michaela Kaune (soprano) & Dagmar Pecková (alto)

Philharmoniker Hamburg, Simone Young

October of this year was the 100th anniversary of the Hamburg premiere of Mahler’s Second Symphony so this release by the Hamburg Philharmonic is very timely. The soloists are outstanding. Simone Young’s partnership with this orchestra is proving to be very successful: “What I like most about this performance (OC633 Bruckner Symphony No.1)… is its mixture of drama and warmth… Gramophone

“In the 'Urlicht' - nobly enhanced by Dagmar Peckova's deep contralto timbre - Young (as directed by Mahler but rarely practised) separates and distances the trumpets at the start as if we've suddenly entered another realm.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2012

“Young's Second is, in a word, stunning. At once personally involving ad profoundly moving, this traversal finds her expertly marshalling highly accomplished forces through this 80-minute confrontation with life, death and the hereafter with such unwavering conviction that the ultimate triumph is never at issue...Young's new account merits high commendation and can hold its own in the most illustrious company.” International Record Review, May 2012

Marie-Nicole Lemieux sings Mahler, Berlioz & Wagner

Marie-Nicole Lemieux sings Mahler, Berlioz & Wagner


Berlioz:

Les Nuits d'été, Op. 7

Mahler:

Rückert-Lieder (5 songs, complete)

Wagner:

Wesendonck-Lieder (5)


A native of Québec, Marie-Nicole Lemieux gained international attention in 2000 when she won both the Prix de la Reine Fabiola and the Prix du Lied in Belgium. She has given recitals across Europe, Canada and the United States. The American pianist Daniel Blumenthal performs an encyclopaedic repertoire and has premiered many works, including the Debussy Piano Trio.

“The unguarded emotionalism that has made this not-so-cool Canadian endearing is in evidence in almost every song here, with a particularly penetrating response to 'Schmerzen' in the Wesendonck songs. However, such interpretative responses come in primary colours, tempered by a steady stream of vocal tone....admirers of Lemieux will understand and appreciate this artist more having heard this recital.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2012

“Her French is, as you'd expect, impeccable; so is her German, in the Wagner and Mahler sets. Each unfolds unhurriedly but with a clear sense of direction...Lemieux sustains a fine flow of even tone across all the range...Lemieux's beautifully controlled performance suggests that the [Concours Reine-Elisabeth de Belgique] jury back in 1998 was more than justified in its verdict.” International Record Review, March 2012

Mahler: Symphony No. 7

Mahler: Symphony No. 7

Recorded live at the Mann Auditorium Tel Aviv February 2007


In the summer of 1905, Mahler suffered a creative block. He was at his wits' end. He resigned himself to return to Krupendorf, the shore opposite his summer retreat, empty handed. "At the first stroke of the oars the rhythm and the character of the introduction came into my head", he later wrote to his wife. Armed with this inspiration, he composed like a man possessed – the 1st, 3rd and 5th movements were completed in a month.

“this newcomer from Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra sets out an uncommonly rational and compelling case for this unjustly maligned work...Mehta's account is urgently propulsive and, for the greater part, very cogently argued...it is in the crazy clamour of the Rondo finale that Mehta's multi-facted reading finally coalesces, powering towards the triumphant final peroration and drawing playing of ecstatic brilliance from his orchestra.” International Record Review, February 2012

Mahler:

Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection'

Recorded live at the Philharmonie, Berlin, 26-27 March 2005


Diana Damrau (soprano), Petra Lang (mezzo)

Staatskapelle Berlin & Staatsopernchor, Pierre Boulez

Born in 1925 in Montbrison, France, Pierre Boulez is one of the most distinguished composers and conductors in the world today.

With his uncompromising approach to the score, Pierre Boulez’s Mahler readings have long fascinated critics and audiences alike. Boulez eschews the romanticized readings common in performance tradition and instead reveals the real joy and terror in Mahler’s large-scale symphonies.

Vocalists Diana Damrau and Petra Lang join forces with the Staaatskapelle Berlin and the Staatsopernchor as the perfect ensemble to bring Boulez’s vision of this gargantuan piece to life.

Boulez’s interpretation is truly infused with light. This performance really does give a new perspective on a much-loved symphony.

Beethoven:

String Quartet No. 11 in F minor Op. 95 'Serioso'

arr. for string orchestra, G. Mahler

Mahler:

Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor - Adagietto

Symphony No. 10 in F sharp major - Adagio

arr. for string orchestra, H. Stadlmair


“A quartet for string orchestra! That sounds strange to you. I already know all the objections that will be raised: ruination of intimacy, of individuality. But that is an error. What I intend is only an ideal representation of the quartet. Chamber music is primarily written for the living room. It is really enjoyed only by the performers. The four ladies and gentlemen who sit at their music stands are also the audience towards which this music turns. If chamber music is transferred to the concert hall, this intimacy is already lost. But even more is lost. In a large space the four voices are lost and do not speak to the listener with the power that the composer wanted to give them. I give them this power by strengthening the voices. I unravel the expansion that is dormant in the voices and give the sounds wings.” Thus Mahler in an open letter in the Viennese newspaper Die Wage in January 1899. (from: liner notes by Willem de Bordes)
