La Mer

Saal 1, Funkhaus, Cologne, 24 October 1960


Symphony No. 3

Saal 1, Funkhaus, Cologne, 31 October 1960

Lucretia West (contralto)

Dimitri Mitropoulos (1896–1960), a most distinguished Mahlerian, was one of the great conductors of his generation, the music director of the New York Philharmonic and a frequent guest conductor of the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonics as well as La Scala, Milan.

This Cologne performance of Mahler’s Symphony No.3 from 31 October 1960 is the only complete performance of the work conducted by Dimitri Mitropoulos, the only other being his 1956 broadcast with the New York Philharmonic which is distorted by cuts and amendments.

It is the only officially released recording of Mitropoulos’s performance and together with Debussy’s La Mer, is sourced from WDR’s own master tapes.

The Cologne concert took place two days before Mitropoulos’s death in Milan on 2 November 1960. The set is completed by Mitropoulos’s outstanding interpretation of Debussy’s La Mer. A worthy document of a great condutor.

SAMPLE TRACK Mahler: Symphony No.3 - 1st Movement

“These performances, taken from 1960 radio broadcasts, were the last Mitropoulos gave. During the symphony’s huge first movement, he suffered a heart attack; and, though he went on conducting, he died two days later... Yet this account is still fine enough to reveal his mastery of Mahler and his rapport with the Cologne orchestra, shown also in a brilliant, mercurial La Mer.” Sunday Times, 8th May 2011 **

“part of the fascination of this 1960 live performance is hearing the Cologne orchestra tackle what was then very unfamiliar repertoire. The playing is occasionally rough and imprecise, but it’s also wonderfully exciting. Mitropoulos seamlessly knits the kaleidoscopic first movement together, the trombone solo raw and passionate, the marching band sections rowdy but tightly controlled.” Graham Rickson, The Arts Desk, 4th June 2011

Claudio Abbado was undeniably the supreme Mahler conductor of our time. With his Lucerne Festival Orchestra he has set new standards in the field of classical music, especially in the interpretation of works by Gustav Mahler.

The core of the orchestra is provided by the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, itself an élite body of players. Soloists like violinist Kolja Blacher, clarinettist Sabine Meyer, oboist Albrecht Mayer, violist Wolfram Christ, cellist Natalia Gutman, the Hagen Quartet and members of the Alban Berg Quartet to name just a few, make the Lucerne Festival Orchestra a star-studded ensemble.

The DVDs and Blu-ray Discs of Claudio Abbado's Mahler symphonies recordings Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 have already proven to be true Best-sellers. On the occasion of Mahler's 100. Anniversary of Death (May 18), EuroArts will release a luxurious 4 Blu-ray Box set, including the Mahler Symphonies Nos. 1-7 with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and Claudio Abbado.

An aficionado must-have!

“It’s different having best friends together. Everyone is there to enjoy making music, to take pleasure, to play with enthusiasm, with passion. They are prepared to do any crazy thing I ask them for the sake of the music. To fly, to walk through fire.” Claudio Abbado

“Has there ever been a suaver, more transparent Mahler performance or one in which everything stays so beautifully in tune? ... Abbado’s music-making is a celebration of the purest joy.” The Gramophone Magazine
