Bernard Haitink has had a long association with Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 3 in D minor, from his classic 1966 stereo recording with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra to his 2006 audiophile recording with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. This 2016 release on BR Klassik finds Haitink leading the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra in a stirring live performance that shows no diminishment of the conductor's interpretive powers, and compares quite well with his previous renditions.

Immortalized in Luchino Visconti's cinematic masterpiece Death in Venice, Mahler's Symphony No.5, with its unforgettable Adagietto, needs little introduction.

For this recording, the current members of the very same ensemble are led by their newly appointed General Music Director, François-Xavier Roth.

Seldom paired, the well-known Gustav Mahler lieder follow five of wife Alma's lesser-known, but equally engaging, songs. These personal and highly romantic songs are perfectly complemented by Cargill's poetic sensitivity; her warm and vibrant voice, with the emotional insight borne of opera, is breathtakingly beautiful. Frequently singled out for her phenomenal vocals Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill brings her exemplary range of vocal colours and rich emotional expression to bear in her debut solo recital. Simon Lepper accompanies with sensitivity and flair; an award-winning pianist specialising in vocal accompanying, Lepper is a regular recital partner of Cargill's.

“I am delighted to perform and record the complete symphonies of Gustav Mahler with the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker. The result, we hope, should be something special: a rendition that stems from an active collaboration in which we mutually inspire one another. This should not be “my” Mahler, but “our” Mahler…….. Gustav Mahler premiered his First Symphony at the age of 29. For personal reasons I feel a close bond with that 29-year-old Musical Director of the Hungarian State Opera. 120 years later, I was named General Music Director of the same opera house. We both hastily abandoned the institution after 2 1/2 years.
Leif Ove Andsnes, Mahler Chamber Orchestra - Beethoven: Piano Concertos Nos. 2 & 4 (2014)

EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 01:03:40 | 224 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Sony Classical | Catalog: 88883705482

The presence of the young Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the decision by pianist Leif Ove Andsnes to conduct it from the keyboard may lead you to expect a smaller-scale performance than listeners actually get here, in this second album of Andsnes' "Beethoven Journey." Certainly this isn't keyboard-pounding Beethoven. The slow movement of the Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major, Op. 58, has none of the giant-stomping-around quality it often received in golden-age recordings.

Majestic and profoundly moving, Mahler’s 2nd Symphony (‘Resurrection’) constitutes one of the towering monuments of late-19th-century symphonic music and one of the composer’s most popular works. It was therefore logical that Jean-Claude Casadesus, a living legend of the conductor’s art, chose this work, which has accompanied him for many years, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his Orchestre National de Lille.
