Mahler - Symphony No. 2

This release contains two remasterings of the same performance


Mahler:

Symphony No. 2 in C minor 'Resurrection'

Symphony No. 2 in C minor 'Resurrection'

Compact disc 2 with Ambient Mastering (Ambient Mastering utilises very small frequency delays to give a sense of space and width to a mono, or very narrow stereo, recording. The amount of processing is determined by the mastering engineer. No artificial reverberation is added in this process, so that the natural acoustic of the original remains largely unaltered.)


Ilona Steingruber & Hilde Rössl-Majdan

Akademie Kammerchor & Wiener Symphoniker, Otto Klemperer

Paul Baily – mastering engineer.

Klemperer once called Mahler his creator spiritus. But he told his biographer Peter Heyworth, “I’m not a silly, enthusiastic boy: I don’t like everything he wrote”. Despite having assisted the composer at a performance, Klemperer did not care for Mahler’s Third Symphony, nor for the Fifth. He gave up the First after just one attempt, and could never quite bring himself to conduct the Sixth or the Eighth – until the end of his life when a London concert of the latter became one of his unrealised fantasies for the New Philharmonia’s 1971/72 season. In autumn 1905, as a student in Berlin, he had conducted the off-stage band for performances of the Second given by Oskar Fried. Mahler himself attended and instructed Klemperer on how to get the proper effect he wanted from the brass – “blaring, but from a long way away”. He was pleased with the result and congratulated the young conductor. A short time later Klemperer played the first movement’s off-stage side-drum when Mahler took over from Arthur Nikisch to conduct the Third Symphony in Berlin. Determining now to call on the composer in Vienna for a reference, Klemperer, as visiting card, brought his own piano arrangement of the symphony, playing the Scherzo from memory (a reduction which seems to have been lost during Klemperer’s wartime years in America). Mahler wrote to his wife Alma how impressed he was and, eventually, wrote out a most complete testimonial on a visiting card: “Gustav Mahler recommends Herr Klemperer as an outstanding musician, who despite his youth is already very experienced and is predestined for a conductor’s career. He vouches for the successful outcome of any probationary appointment...”

Mahler: Symphony No. 8 in E flat major 'Symphony of a Thousand'


Martina Arroyo, Erna Spoorenberg, Edith Mathis (sopranos), Julia Hamari, Norma Procter (altos), Donald Grobe (tenor), Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (baritone), Franz Crass (bass) & Eberhard Kraus (organ)

Choruses of Bavarian, North & West German Radio, Regensburger Domspatzen, Frauenchor des Münchner Motettenchores & Symphonie-Orchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Rafael Kubelik

"Conceivably, many people own the Kubelik set of Mahler symphonies on DG. But being a live performance, and in remastered sound, this is still an excellent introduction to Mahler's monumental Eighth Symphony. Kubelik is a reliable, no frills conductor, who will always give a balanced, thoughtful reading without extremes of temperament. You could do a lot worse than to learn Mahler from this undoubted master. The soloists are well chosen, as each voice is so distinctive it’s easy to track them: there’s no mistaking Fischer-Dieskau, for example, though his lines are less spectacular, perhaps, than those of the sopranos. Kubelik’s characteristic light touch is persuasive in the non vocal passages. It mirrors the surprising delicacy of the vocal writing. Other conductors can get away with darker textures, perhaps because their singers aren’t as transcendently clear as Kubelik’s.” MUSICWEB

Fischer-Dieskau 85th Birthday Edition: Mahler Lieder

Berlin Philharmonie, 1971 (live)


Mahler:

Phantasie aus Don Juan (Lieder und Gesänge aus der Jugendzeit)

Frühlingsmorgen (Lieder und Gesänge aus der Jugendzeit)

Erinnerung (Lieder und Gesänge aus der Jugendzeit)

Blicke mir nicht in die Lieder! (Rückert-Lieder)

Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen (Rückert-Lieder)

Wenn mein Schatz Hochzeit macht (No. 1 from Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen)

Ging heut' morgen übers Feld (No. 2 from Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen)

Ich hab' ein gluhend' Messer (No. 3 from Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen)

Die zwei blauen Augen von meinem Schatz (No. 4 from Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen)

Zu Strassburg auf der Schanz (Lieder und Gesänge aus der Jugendzeit)

Das irdische Leben (Des Knaben Wunderhorn)

Nicht wiedersehen (Lieder und Gesänge aus der Jugendzeit)

Scheiden und Meiden (Lieder und Gesänge aus der Jugendzeit)

Des Antonius von Padua Fischpredigt (Des Knaben Wunderhorn)

Ablösung im Sommer (Lieder und Gesänge aus der Jugendzeit)

Um schlimme Kinder artig zu machen (Lieder und Gesänge aus der Jugendzeit)

Selbstgefühl (Lieder und Gesänge aus der Jugendzeit)


These releases from the archives of the RIAS and the Sender Freies Berlin document the unequalled quantitative and qualitative spectrum which baritone Fischer-Dieskau acquired during the five decades of his career.

They offer a fascinating insight into the breadth of his repertoire as well as his artistic approach, with which he maintained a careful balance of development and continuity until the end. These recordings – spanning Beethoven’s sacred songs Op. 48 of 1806, through Schumann, Brahms, Mahler and Reger, to Heinrich Sutermeister’s expressive psalm setting of 1948 – demonstrate the essential Fischer-Dieskau.

Not only do they document the artistic partnership with pianists such as Hertha Klust, Daniel Barenboim, Cord Garben, Aribert Reimann and Tamás Vásáry, but also the delightful collaboration with the organist Ulrich Bremsteller.

Furthermore, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau can be heard together with his wife and musical partner, Julia Varady. This is a documentary edition both in the sense of a historic and an artistic legacy: it reveals the riches of lieder from the last two centuries which Fischer-Dieskau, in his role of musical chronicler, made accessible for the present age; and it is an impressive record of an incomparable interpretational art, according to which word and music were always treated and realised as a unit.
