Chor der Sächsischen Staatsoper Dresden, Sinfoniechor Dresden & Staatskapelle Dresden, Bernard Haitink

“the strings have a warmly cosseting quality, the winds are mellifluous, the brass powerful but cleanly focused...The voices are well balanced and Haitink's willingness to let the music breathe while never allowing it to sag (just listen to how the first movement gains momentum) benefits Mahler's structural design...A great recording, then” Gramophone Magazine, October 2012

“The humility everywhere apparent points to the fact that, while much in Jansons's background would indicate musical success...that success was far from assured...The presumptions in the documentary are put well into practice in Mahler's Second Symphony...Jansons deploys his stage forces with such seamless attention to the score that Mahler's eruptions become part of a preconceived plan and not spontaneous outbursts for their own sake.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2012

“Most valuable is the footage of his father, conductor Arvid Jansons, and of his own early days as a Herbert von Karajan protege...Of Jansons's humanity and penetrating gifts as a conductor we hear heartfelt testimony from the pianist Lang Lang...the Mahler film fully displays Jansons's passionate physical engagement with the music.” BBC Music Magazine, July 2012 ***

“the excerpts included in the documentary give evidence of his talent. Yet this documentary also offers some insights into Jansons' artistic temperament, which support the music which he interprets so well...Jansons captures the style of the work from the start, with a dramatically charged interpretation of the opening funeral march...The visual aspects of the DVD fit the music, with crisp images, realistic color and well-thought videography.” MusicWeb International, July 2012

Mahler: Symphony No. 5

Mahler: Symphony No. 5


William Caballero (horn) & George Vosburgh (trumpet)

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Manfred Honeck

This new 2 channel hybrid SACD of the 5th Symphony is the fourth release in a cycle of recordings of Mahler’s symphonies from the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and its highly regarded conductor Manfred Honeck. The previous three have featured Symphonies No. 1(EXCL00026), No. 4 (EXCL00048), and No. 3 (EXCL000450). The last and most recent of these was picked as a Gramophone “Editor's Choice” in November 2011.

Considered to be one of the best modern day interpreters of Gustav Mahler’s music, the Austrian musical director Manfred Honeck began his career as conductor of Vienna's Jeunesse Orchestra, which he co-founded. He went on to become assistant to Claudio Abbado with the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra in Vienna. After several highly successful guest appearances as conductor of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra he was appointed its Director of Music in 2008. Honeck conducted the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in a thrilling, acclaimed performance of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony at last year’s BBC Proms.

The Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor was composed in 1901 and 1902, mostly during the summer months at Mahler's cottage at Maiernigg. Among its most distinctive features are the funereal trumpet solo that opens the work and the frequently performed Adagietto, which was famously used in the film ‘Death in Venice’.

“As in their previous recordings of Mahler, Manfred Honeck continues to seek fresh insights through a scrupulous re-examination of Mahler's detailed markings and the superb Pittsberg brass continue to exalt in the wide-open spaciousness of their Heinz-Hall home-base.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2012 ***

“Honeck's account is big, bigger and biggest on pretty much every count. You have to possess a temperament compatible with Mahler's own to take the opening 'Trauermarsch' quite so broadly...And Honeck has fantastic instinct for Mahler's nodal points - those key moments where all the energy is concentrated...Pittsburgh's first horn is as spectacular as any on disc” Gramophone Magazine, September 2012

“[Honeck] generally favours a warm, Romantic, traditional sound and while he has a keen ear for balancing sonorities he is unafraid to give the brass their head...I find it to be very fine but without anything especially striking to say...Yet all is beautifully played in first-rate sound” MusicWeb International, July 2012

Mahler: Symphony No. 7

Mahler: Symphony No. 7


Jonathan Nott and the Bamberger Symphoniker have written a special chapter in recording history with this series. Currently nominated in the 2012 BBC Music Magazine Awards, their recording of Mahler Symphony No.3 (TUDOR7170) was a BBC Music Magazine Orchestral Choice; “a recorded spaciousness which lets every ensemble and solo spiritually resound.”

“Nott's is the latest in a hard-to-choose-from field. Every Bamberg soloist, from the artistic tenor horn solo right at the start, is given room to breathe...This performance may not be quite as incandescent as the same team's recent Third Symphony, but it's still well up to the overall standards of Bamberg's Mahlerian success story.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2012 ****

“We've come to expect certain qualities from this Bamberg/Nott Mahler cycle - not least real stylistic awareness and exceptional attention to detail - and this beautifully prepared and acutely well-heard Seventh is no exception. Perhaps Nott's most notable achievement here lies in uncovering beauty and fascination and a certain sensuousness beneath the often strange and misshapen...One to hear - and superbly engineered, too.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2012

“Nott adopts a gradual but far from cautious approach to a first movement that inches forward from its initial pensiveness...no one who hears this account is likely to be disappointed, not least when the Bamberg Symphony's playing reaffirms its current standing among European orchestras” International Record Review, May 2012

“Nott's reading has many of the virtues that distinguished the finest of his earlier discs – formal clarity and directness; lean, crisp textures; and a total lack of indulgence. He is at his most impressive in his clear-sighted handling of the long span of the first movement” The Guardian, 14th March 2012 ****
