These songs follow on from the release in this series of Mahler’s 4th Symphony. This recording ends with “Himmlischen Leben”, the song which closes the 4th Symphony. Christiane Oelze and Michael Volle alternate as soloists and sing some songs as duets. Once again, Stenz creates an unmistakable sound and demonstrates why this is a significant Mahler cycle.

BBC Music Magazine

December 2010


“Volle's military narratives are crisp and direct, with splendid fanfaring from the Cologne players, rather than heavy-laden...there's plenty of point and with from both the spotlit orchestral solos and the singers throughout.”

Gramophone Magazine

November 2010

“Stenz provides vivid, no-nonsense direction...Michael Volle matches Fischer-Dieskau in "Revelge"...there is delight to be had from the operetta-like duets and in the prisoner-in-the-tower song where [Oelze] captures to perfection the schmeichlerisch ("flattering") quality Mahler requests”

International Record Review

January 2011

“Both have voices that are ideally suited to this music and the poetry: they're not too knowing but are careful to sing what's written, and both have the ability to colour their voices most sensitively...Stenz is alert throughout to telling orchestral details without ever drawing the wrong kind of attention to them: this is remarkable Mahler conducting, full of imagination and colour.”

Classic FM Magazine

March 2011


“Oelze's performance is one of silvery radiance, with drama and humour aplenty. Volle delivers a highly atmospheric Tambourgesell, his dynamics and dramatic enunciation spinning a mood weighted with nervous doom. The orchestra is particularly light of touch, dancing and making love with youthful joy, but turning on the weight and gravitas when required.”
