SOMM’s second new Mahler release in his anniversary year features a trio of superb singers with the excellent Orchestra of the Swan in live recordings. Kenneth Woods was appointed as Principal Guest Conductor of this orchestra in 2010 and is widely known for his affinity with the music of Mahler.
Wenn Mein Schatz Hochzeit Macht
Ging Heut' Morgen Übers Feld
Ich Hab' Ein Glühend Messer
Die Zwei Blauen Augen
Das Trinkleid Von Jammer Der Erde
Der Einsame Im Herbst
Von Der Jugend
Von Der Schönheit
Der Trunkene Im Frühling
“This is an absolutely astonishing recording in many respects...Emma Curtis's tone is remarkably pure throughout her very wide range...she sings [Der Abschied] magnificently, so musically and profoundly intelligently...she has an equal accompanist in Brennan Guillory, whose account of his more dramatic songs is infused with great discipline and dignity...David Stout is an admirable interpreter of the youthful songs, beautifully sung and well characterized”
