Michaela Kaune (soprano) & Dagmar Pecková (alto)

Philharmoniker Hamburg, Simone Young

October of this year was the 100th anniversary of the Hamburg premiere of Mahler’s Second Symphony so this release by the Hamburg Philharmonic is very timely. The soloists are outstanding. Simone Young’s partnership with this orchestra is proving to be very successful: “What I like most about this performance (OC633 Bruckner Symphony No.1)… is its mixture of drama and warmth… Gramophone

“In the 'Urlicht' - nobly enhanced by Dagmar Peckova's deep contralto timbre - Young (as directed by Mahler but rarely practised) separates and distances the trumpets at the start as if we've suddenly entered another realm.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2012

“Young's Second is, in a word, stunning. At once personally involving ad profoundly moving, this traversal finds her expertly marshalling highly accomplished forces through this 80-minute confrontation with life, death and the hereafter with such unwavering conviction that the ultimate triumph is never at issue...Young's new account merits high commendation and can hold its own in the most illustrious company.” International Record Review, May 2012

Marie-Nicole Lemieux sings Mahler, Berlioz & Wagner

Marie-Nicole Lemieux sings Mahler, Berlioz & Wagner


Berlioz:

Les Nuits d'été, Op. 7

Mahler:

Rückert-Lieder (5 songs, complete)

Wagner:

Wesendonck-Lieder (5)


A native of Québec, Marie-Nicole Lemieux gained international attention in 2000 when she won both the Prix de la Reine Fabiola and the Prix du Lied in Belgium. She has given recitals across Europe, Canada and the United States. The American pianist Daniel Blumenthal performs an encyclopaedic repertoire and has premiered many works, including the Debussy Piano Trio.

“The unguarded emotionalism that has made this not-so-cool Canadian endearing is in evidence in almost every song here, with a particularly penetrating response to 'Schmerzen' in the Wesendonck songs. However, such interpretative responses come in primary colours, tempered by a steady stream of vocal tone....admirers of Lemieux will understand and appreciate this artist more having heard this recital.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2012

“Her French is, as you'd expect, impeccable; so is her German, in the Wagner and Mahler sets. Each unfolds unhurriedly but with a clear sense of direction...Lemieux sustains a fine flow of even tone across all the range...Lemieux's beautifully controlled performance suggests that the [Concours Reine-Elisabeth de Belgique] jury back in 1998 was more than justified in its verdict.” International Record Review, March 2012

Mahler: Symphony No. 10 in F sharp major

Mahler: Symphony No. 10 in F sharp major

Realization by Deryck Cooke


This live recording is Mark Wigglesworth’s second reading of this formidable work. His first recording was a cover mount in 1993 for BBC Music Magazine and gathered quite a cult status among Mahlerians. This new release reveals Wigglesworth as a Mahler conductor to be reckoned with. “Wigglesworth’s performance managed to embrace the whole array of moods and colours in this extraordinary score…” Guardian review of concert performance (LSO).

“Mark Wigglesworth has performed the Tenth regularly since a BBC Symphony Orchestra concert in 1991 brought him wide attention...This live Melbourne performance...[is] consistent with a vision of the piece that was clear and distinctive over two decades ago...if there is a Wigglesworth sound, the Melbourne orchestra are well schooled in it.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2011

“Tempos in the first, third and fifth movements are slightly more deliberate than you might expect...The first scherzo takes off at a cracking pace here, a notch too fast for its executants to manage...A firm, purposeful reading then, of more than local interest” International Record Review, January 2012

“The Australian orchestra play with an aching beauty of line and an implacable weight that’s deeply affecting...Good - very good – in parts, but not the penetrating performance I’d hoped for.” MusicWeb International, December 2012

Mahler: Des Knaben Wunderhorn


Mahler:

Des Knaben Wunderhorn (12 songs, 1901 version)

Urlicht (Des Knaben Wunderhorn)

Das himmlische Leben (Des Knaben Wunderhorn)


This is a special release commemorating the 100th anniversary of Mahler’s death and Michael Gielen has returned to make his first ever recording of the complete Des Knaben Wunderhorn. These vital new performances show that Gielen, despite now being in his eighties, is not slowing down. He is one of our generation’s greatest Mahlerians.

“As so often, the veteran 'modernist' proves himself a highly perceptive Mahlerian...[Muller-Brachmann's] penetrating, never heavy bass-baritone is pleasing and he is blessed with fine diction too, projecting the humour of 'Lob des hohen Verstandes' to excellent effect...admirers of Gielen's Mahler should not hesitate to acquire what is his belated first recording of these songs.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2012
