Israeli conductor Gary Bertini, chief conductor of the Radio Symphony Orchestra Cologne and director of music at the Frankfurt opera was well known for his wide symphonic repertoire which included acclaimed recordings of the complete Mahler Symphonies.

Collaboration between the maestro of the orchestra and one of the most remarkable contemporary singers can be nothing less than a great moment of Mahler interpretation. Phoenix Edition is delighted to bring together these two masters of the Mahler genre.

All the songs found their way into some of Mahler’s Symphonies; The “Songs of a Wayfarer”present throughout the First Symphony, songs from “The Youth’s Magic Horn“ found their way into the Second and Fourth Symphonies and the sentiments of the Rückert Lieder into Symphonies 5, 6 and 7. The “Kindertotenlieder” in particular contrast the polyphonic sound of wind phrases and the string cantilena with harp sounds reminiscent of the original piano versions.

Hakan Hagegard concludes this CD with songs about which the conductor Bruno Walter once observed: “Mahler found everything that moved his soul in the ‘Youth’s Magic Horn’; and even more, he found it described just as he himself perceived it to be: nature, piety, desire, love, leave-taking, death, the joy of youth […] – all of that was alive in him as it was alive in the poetry, and so his songs burst forth.”

BBC Music Magazine

September 2008

****

“Gary Bertini guides crystal-clear Mahler. Quasthoff ranges confidently in the Wayfarer songs and blends restraint with searing emotional phrases in the Kindertotenlieder; Hagegård sounds a touch generic by comparison.”

Gramophone Magazine

(on Thomas Quasthoff)

“faultless in tonal production and technical assurance: he always sings with thought for the text; word and note become as one.”
