Mahler: Symphony No. 4 (arr. Stein)


Mahler:

Symphony No. 4

Christiane Karg (soprano)

Strauss, J, II:

Schatz-Walzer, Op. 418

arranged by Anton Webern

Kaiser-Walzer, Op. 437

arranged by Arnold Schönberg


Renaud Capuçon (violin), Katja Lammermann (violin), Antoine Tamestit (viola), Clemens Hagen (cello), Alois Posch (double bass), Magali Mosnier (flute), Sebastian Manz (clarinet), Albrecht Mayer (oboe), Herbert Schuch (piano), Gereon Kleiner (harmonium), Leonhard Schmidinger (percussion), Martin Grubinger (percussion)

The fact that this rare gem was considered lost and was only brought back into the repertory in 1993 thanks to a great deal of effort is astounding (even more so considering the relative success it has enjoyed since that time); a chamber-music version of Mahler’s Fourth Symphony by the Schoenberg pupil Erwin Stein for his ‘society for private performances of music’. The work was reconstructed from Erwin Stein’s notes in his score of the original symphony and his correspondence with Schoenberg. A tonally pleasing piece in itself, it also gives valuable insight into the compositional structure of the original and provides a creative contribution towards imagining the relationship between two highly important composers. After all, while the circle around Schoenberg truly venerated Gustav Mahler, he in turn took an active and certainly respectful interest in the new paths that Schoenberg had embarked upon. This recording is a fitting contribution to the Mahler anniversary year of 2011, marking the centenary of his death! This is matched by two irresistible, slightly quirky, yet idiomatically highly suitable, distorted Strauss waltzes by Webern and Schoenberg as ‘the icing on the cake’. All played by an incomparable ‘all-star ensemble’ featuring Renaud Capuçon, Antoine Tamestit, Clemens Hagen, Magali Mosnier, Sebastian Manz, Albrecht Mayer, Herbert Schuch, Martin Grubinger among others! They are joined in the last movement of the Mahler symphony by Christiane Karg, singing of ‘heavenly joys’…

“Sensitivity to [context] is a distinguishing mark of all three performances…too many other recordings of Stein’s version succeed only in sounding like mini-Mahler. This dares to go further, to narrow the gap between the original and Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony” Gramophone Magazine, June 2017

As a brand name, the Vienna New Year’s Concert can trace back its origins to 31 December 1939. In other words, the concert initially took place on the last day of the year. By 1941, however, it was being held on 1 January, when the Vienna Philharmonic established a tradition that continues to flourish to this day.

The list of names of leading conductors who have led the Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Concerts reads like a veritable who’s who of great maestros: including Herbert von Karajan, Lorin Maazel, Claudio Abbado, Carlos Kleiber, Zubin Mehta, Riccardo Muti, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Seiji Ozawa, Mariss Jansons, and Franz Welser-Möst.

It is not least thanks to this illustrious succession of great conductors that the Vienna New Year’s Concert remains unique, ushering in the New Year in a way that has often been imitated but never equalled. Its universal popularity is undoubtedly due to the direct – or deferred – live broadcast from the flower-filled Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein. The first broadcast went out on Eurovision in 1959, the first colour relay in 1967. Now the concert is shown in countries throughout almost the entire world.

It continues to be works by members of the Strauss family – Johann Strauss Father and Son as well as Eduard and Josef Strauss – that are central to this media event. Old favourites from their output are heard alongside others that have never been recorded or are only rarely heard; all of them programmed around two fixed points in the concert: the Blue Danube Waltz and the Radetzky March.

Mariss Jansons ranks among the outstanding podium personalities of our time. He has been the Chief Conductor of the Chor und Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks since 2003. After several exceptionally successful seasons, his contract was prolonged until 2018. Until recently he was also the chief conductor of the Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest in Amsterdam (2004-2015) and held both prestigious positions of a chief conductor at both orchestras. Both ensembles made the top 10 in a 2008 Gramophone list of the world's top 20 orchestras.
