Klaus Tennstedt conducts Mahler & Mozart

Klaus Tennstedt conducts Mahler & Mozart

Symphony Hall, Boston, 15 January 1977


Mahler:

Symphony No. 4

Phyllis Bryn-Julson (soprano)

Mozart:

Symphony No. 35 in D major, K385 'Haffner'


This series of DVDs will make the publicly broadcast BSO concerts from this era available for the first time since they were broadcast. This rare material represents some of the earliest concert footage that exists with Klaus Tennstedt from this key chapter in his career and has been restored using the greatest care and state-of-the-art techniques. It is of exceptional musical interest and historic value.

This DVD is only the third filmed performance featuring Tennstedt with the BSO to be made available to the public and represents some of the earliest concert footage with this great conductor. Tennstedt has been compared with Barbirolli, Furtwängler, Karajan and Klemperer by the Gramophone Classical Music Guide, whilst BBC Music Magazine described ICA Classics’ recent DVD release featuring Tennstedt directing the LPO in Mahler 5 as ‘epitomising the combination of immensely detailed precision and overwhelming expressive intensity that Tennstedt’s many admirers found so special’.

Tennstedt and the BSO formed a close association, together covering much of the Austro-German symphonic tradition, such as the works included on this DVD, which are described by Michael McManus as a ‘classic Tennstedt programme’.

The only available (audio) recording with Tennstedt performing Mozart’s ‘Haffner’ Symphony is a concert performance with the LPO from 1984.

The Penguin Guide describes the second of only two recordings with Tennstedt performing Mahler 4 (with the LPO, 5 years after the recording on this DVD) as ‘a strong, spacious reading which yet conveys an innocence entirely in keeping with this most endearing of the Mahler symphonies’.

Tennstedt was well known for the depth and animation of his concert performances, to which his studio recordings seldom compare – this DVD provides a rare opportunity to witness the great man in action.

Two of ICA’s BSO DVDs featuring Charles Munch as conductor have been awarded the Diapason d’Or in France’s Diapason magazine.

Mahler's vocal works conjure up the spirit of old folk songs, reinterpreted as miniature emotional dramas. In Christa Ludwig these pieces found one of their most gifted interpreters: her recordings from the 1950's and 60's are among the most important of all Mahler readings available on disc.

Weill, K:

Je ne t'aime pas (text: Maurice Magre)


An innovative debut recording from EMI’s new signing, Tine Thing Helseth, in which Tine takes on the mantle of story teller through her interpretation and repertoire curation.

This collection of songs transcribed for trumpet includes music by Strauss, Sibelius, Ravel, Canteloube and Weill, and is anchored by Grieg’s Haugtussa song-cycle. The recording is with orchestra and piano accompaniment.

Tine is 23 with a refreshingly focused and straightforward approach to making music. She is a unique artist with several facets - classical soloist, ensemble leader and jazz musician – and equally at home with each.

Tine Thing Helseth, born in 1987, started to play trumpet at the age of 7, and is already one of the leading trumpet soloists of her generation. Already in her solo career, Helseth has appeared with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, Ulster Orchestra, Philharmonie Baden-Baden, all the major Norwegian orchestras and further afield with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, amongst others.

“Tine Thing Helseth is blessed with a combination of great wind-playing attributes: a soulful - dare one say brooding, Nordic - approach to phrasing, quite astonishingly outstanding intonation and a sound which is open and honest, even and focused in all registers...Helseth can do the ultimate in good trumpet-playing: smith a tune with seeming effortlessness.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2012

Güzenich-Orchester Köln, Mädchen und Knaben der Chöre am Kölner Dom, Damenchor der Oper Köln, Markus Stenz

The next disc in the hugely acclaimed series. Symphony No.2 (OC647) was a Classic FM Editor’s Choice: “All the enormity and intimacy of Mahler’s Second Symphony is here to be savoured.”

“this performance starts out particularly well. Stenz is good at grabbing the listener's ear with the dramatic gesture...More crucially...[he] keeps a firm grasp of those transition moments in Mahler that separate mere traffic cops on the podium from those conductors fully able to link shifting personnel indicated in the score with the music's underlying emotional content.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2012

Mahler:

Symphony No. 1 in D major 'Titan'

Webern:

Im sommerwind (Idyl for large orchestra) (1904)


Sinfonieorchestre Baden-Baden und Freiburg, François-Xavier Roth

This CD introduces François-Xavier Roth, the charismatic new Principal Conductor of SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg. He has chosen two youthful works to serve as a foundation for his future work with the orchestra.

“Roth's fresh Mahler boasts beautifully transparent orchestral balance and avoids undue emotional histrionics. The early Webern tone-poem is compelling.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2012 ****

“Roth has consciously chosen to downplay the very personal idiosyncrasies in Mahler's music that so many other conductors have played up...Rather than being positioned apologetically as an indiscretion, the Webern comes off with full Romantic force, much in the same musical mind as Mahler and fully equal to the First Symphony in its youthful enthusiasm.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2012
