Egmont Overture, Op. 84

Mahler:

Symphony No. 4 in G major

Irmgard Seefried (soprano)


The Salzburg Festival has always been diverse in its repertoire, and this is also reflected in these Salzburger Festspiel Dokumente 2010. Dominated by birthday boys, among both the composers and the interpreters, Gustav Mahler’s works naturally have to be represented here, as the Salzburg Festival played a major role in his rediscovery soon after the Second World War.

Thus it was in 1950 that Bruno Walter returned to Salzburg with the Fourth Symphony. Mahler was the man who had discovered Walter and furthered his career and Walter had a quarter of a century earlier given the Fourth Symphony’s Salzburg première with the Vienna Philharmonic. He returned to conduct the symphony with the same orchestra in 1950, and as his soloist he brought Irmgard Seefried, whose voice was suitably joyful, yet also sounded as if lost in reverie. The symphony was followed by a gripping performance of Beethoven’s Egmont Overture.

Ever since Beethoven wrote his last piano sonata and called it opus 111, the number 111 has enjoyed certain kudos in musical circles – of which we are proud to take advantage, as Deutsche Grammophon celebrates its 111th anniversary in 2009. 111 years is a lot of history, and we have tried to squeeze into an array of products – both on CD (also available on download) and on DVD – the “flavour” of the label, and to give an idea of its culture over 11 decades, The philosophy has always been “The greatest recordings by the greatest artists in the world” – something clearly borne by the releases now on offer, both in terms of sound quality and artistic merit.

This unique collection of 55 CDs forms DG’s major release in its 111th anniversary celebrations. The limited edition box set gathers together many landmark recordings – from the past to the present. Most of them appear complete, as originally programmed, in their original cover art – and several include additional material.

This is a great Library of Music, Artists and Recordings extending from Abbado to Zimerman, Monteverdi to Pärt, Furtwängler to Dudamel – there’s never been anything quite like it before! The opulent deluxe box with hinged lid opens up to reveal the neatly stacked contents of 51 “original jacket” albums and the 150-page booklet.

Wu Xing (The Five Elements) suite for orchestra

Mahler:

Symphony No. 10 in F sharp major

Clinton Carpenter completion


The Singapore Symphony Orchestra under Music Director Lan Shui release a unique commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Mahler's birth, the first known video release of Symphony No. 10 as completed by Clinton Carpenter, on DVD.

Commemorating the 150th anniversary of Gustav Mahler’s birth is a very special release from The Singapore Symphony Orchestra and their Music Director, Lan Shui: a performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 10 in the seldom heard completion by American musicologist Clinton Carpenter, on DVD. Recorded live in the spectacular Esplanade Concert Hall in Singapore, this is the first known video release of Carpenter’s realisation of Mahler’s enigmatic final symphony. Adding to the uniqueness of the release is Wu Xing (The Five Elements), a work by one of today’s leading Chinese composers, Chen Qi-gang.

Commissioned by Radio France in 1998, Qi-gang’s popular Wu Xing was born out of the idea of wanting to write five short pieces, each representing a different symbol. “From there,” states Qi-gang, “the idea of representing the Five Elements musically was born.”

Bonus features include interviews with Lan Shui and photographs from the Mahler 10 recording sessions. The printed booklet is in English, French, German, Japanese & Chinese while the interview is spoken in English and subtitled in Chinese, French, Japanese and German.

The American Record Guide has compared Lan Shui’s achievements with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra to those of George Szell in Cleveland and Simon Rattle in Birmingham. He has recorded over a dozen discs that have garnered wide-spread acclaim.

Bonus material:

Interviews with Lan Shui on Mahler 10, Wu Xing

Mahler: Symphony No. 1

Mahler: Symphony No. 1

Recorded live at the Concert Hall of the Culture and Convention Centre Lucerne, 12 August 2009


Mahler:

Symphony No. 1 in D major 'Titan'

Prokofiev:

Piano Concerto No. 3 in C major, Op. 26

Yuja Wang (piano)


“Like a cry of Nature”: thus the expression mark that opens Gustav Mahler’s First Symphony – and the programme of the Festival 2009 which takes up Nature as its guiding theme. Mahler, in the First Symphony, shaped the “cry of nature” into a musical vision of an entire human life in four stages – from a spring-like upsurge of feelings through desire and suffering, to the end of earthly existence and the entrance into Paradise.

The opening treats listeners to a spectacular début as the twenty-two-year-old Chinese pianist Yuja Wang plays Sergei Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto. In her Lucerne appearances she displays the full range of her artistry as Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto demands not only lyricism and intimacy but brilliance and virtuosity.

Claudio Abbado has realised a dream with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra. The orchestra consists of an exclusive ensemble of handpicked musicians like Kolja Blacher and Sebastian Breuninger, Natalia Gutman, Clemens Hagen and Jens Peter Maintz.

Claudio Abbado is undeniably a supreme Mahler conductor and his best selling recordings with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra – symphonies No. 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7 (on Blu-ray No. 1, 2, 3 and 6) have already been released on EuroArts – have set new standards in interpretation of works by Gustav Mahler.

Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Manfred Honeck

On 7 July 2010 Kaliště in Czech Republic, where Gustav Mahler was born on this very day 150 years ago, the music world celebrated one of the greatest composers ever. The renowned Mahler Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Austrian maestro Manfred Honeck, and world famous soloists will commemorate the composer with an unique outdoor live concert.

Gustav Mahler was born into a Jewish family in Kaliště on July 7, 1860 as the second of fourteen children. His exceptional musical gifts became apparent at an early age. He began giving music lessons when he was six, and at fifteen he was admitted to the Vienna Music Conservatory. He embarked on what was to become an extraordinary career as a conductor and operatic administrator when he was barely twenty. Mahler was best known during his own lifetime as one of the leading orchestral and operatic conductors of the day. He has since come to be acknowledged as one of the most important late-romantic composers

Rodolfus Choir, made up of singers aged from 16 to 25 who have been chosen from past and present members of Eton College's summer choral courses for prospective choral scholars. It follows the release in May of a new recording of choral works by Herbert Howells (SIGCD190), which was enthusiastically received and praised by listeners and reviewers.

CD1: 12 Anthems by Francis Grier

12 original compositions by Francis Grier, set to sacred words and texts. Grier has written much for the Anglican choral tradition, having pieces commissioned and performed from Westminster Abbey, King's College, Cambridge, as well as Durham, Edinburgh, Salisbury and Winchester Cathedrals.

CD2: Thomas Tallis: Latin & English Motets and Anthems

Latin and English motets and anthems by the accomplished 16th Century polyphonist. Few, if any, composers of the era can boast such a variety of musical styles and genres as Thomas Tallis. His diverse yet strikingly individual voice was a product of an outstanding musical imagination combined with the extraordinary historical context in which he lived. His working life spanned the reign of four monarchs, each preferring a drastically different flavour of Christian worship from his or her predecessor.

CD3: By Special Arrangement

A dazzling selection of arrangements of instrumental and orchestral music, performed by the Rodolfus Choir, by Mahler, Tchaikovsky, Chopin , Schubert and Widor
