Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde

Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde


Cornelia Kallisch (mezzo) & Siegfried Jerusalem (tenor)

Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg, Michael Gielen

SWR music continues their critically acclaimed Mahler cycle with Das Lied von der Erde. The Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg have joined forces with two of the great Mahler singers of our time, Cornelia Kallisch and Siegfried Jerusalem.

“Gielen reveals unsuspected riches in Mahler's textures, Jerusalem excels as the drunkard” BBC Music Magazine, December 2011 ***

“What has been released is actually an amalgamation of two session exactly a decade apart...[Kallisch] evinces real finesse in the fourth, with its evocations of beauty and enchantment...Yet this is ultimately Gielen's 'performance', and those familiar with his Mahler will encounter the expected combination of formal precision and expressive spontaneity here.” International Record Review, July 2011

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

Christoph Prégardien (Tenor), Michael Gees (Piano)

The cosmos of Mahler’ songs is by nature smaller and more straightforward than that of his symphonies, hence the technical style of the songs is also simpler and more limited, never touching upon the borders of the possible in this musical world, as do the symphonies. Yet within these narrow confines and with this modest vocabulary, Mahler achieves an intensity of expression which is hardly inferior to that of his symphonies.

“Beauty and sophistication first surface in the elegies and ghostly bugling of 'Wo die schönen Trompeten blasen', where Prégardien and Gees make a superb case for the intimacy of this combination, and resume in the two deepest Rückert settings…” BBC Music Magazine, Proms 2007 ****

SWR Stuttgart, Roger Norrington

Sir Roger Norrington — arguably the most radical and influential pioneer of historically informed performance practice — was among the "first" to present the music of Schütz, Purcell, Handel, Mozart, Rossini, Beethoven, Brahms and Schumann on period instruments. Since the 2000 Season of the SWR Stuttgart, Sir Roger Norrington has begun a process of translating his period instrument experience to a modern symphony orchestra in the Romantic tradition. The result, has been what the maestro calls “Pure Tone” performance. Sir Roger writes of his “Pure Tone" approach to Mahler: “Although Mahler is a modern composer in so many ways, we try to play him as a 19thcentury composer instead of a 20th-century composer." Norrington’s interpretation succeeds in making Mahler's compositions the culmination of a Viennese tradition rather than a rebellion against it – telling his musicians to “Play it like Haydn!” This fabulous - and certain to be controversial - interpretation includes the lovely interlude for trumpet and strings (“Blumine”). Recorded following Sir Roger’s wildly successful tour of Japan with the SWR in 2004. The Tokyo audience not only gave this Norrington’s Mahler a ten-minute standing ovation but the concert was ranked as one of the Top Five Concert Events of the Year!

This is Mahler as he has not been heard since he originally wrote the work, and is an essential listening experience today!

MDR Rundfunkchor Leipzig, Radio Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart, Sir Roger Norrington

This is the fourth in the Hanssler series of live recordings of the Mahler symphonies, and in it they try as hard as ever to recreate the sound world which Mahler might have expected. Of course the most striking features of this strategy are the 'German seating' (with violins opposite each other and basses across the back of the orchestra) and the 'Pure Tone' normal with all orchestras until the 1920s. Pure tone offers unanimity of sound, transparency, telling harmonies and the possibility of far more engaged phrasing and dynamics.
