Rafael Kubelik conducts Schubert & Mahler


Mahler:

Das Lied von der Erde

Hilde Rössel-Majdan (mezzo) & Waldemar Kmentt (tenor)

Schubert:

Symphony No. 4 in C minor, D417 'Tragic'


Kubelik was the first conductor born after Mahler’s death to display a lasting commitment to his music in Salzburg. In 1959, together with the Venna Philharmonic and excellent soloists, he offered a compelling programme that paired Mahler with Schubert. The symphony, with its melancholic opening movement and pugnacious closing Allegro, led seamlessly into the fatalistic drinking song at the beginning of the Mahler and into the ensuing movements.

Egmont Overture, Op. 84

Mahler:

Symphony No. 4

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.
