Customer Reviews

The Kathleen Ferrier/Julius Patzak is by far the very best recorded performance of Das Lied von der Erde.
The Guy who likes Zebus
There is a perfect balance between the powerful tenor Julius Patzak and the crystal clear voice of Kathleen Ferrier.
Gal
Walter loved this music and invested it with all the depth of humanity he brought to everything he conducted.

Out of the many "Das Lied"s in my collection--starting with Bernstein/Fischer-Dieskau/King, purchased when I was a junior in high school, this is undoubtledly the nonpareil. I have owned this recording in one form or another for over thirty years--in fact, I even ordered a copy of Decca's previous CD remastering from England when I couldn't find it here, and so I was a tad hesitant to purchase another copy when this release came out; I suppose it was the three Ruckert songs that made me decide to purchase it. A quick comparison with the earlier CD sold me on this one right away. There is a clarity to the orchestra's detailing and to the singing that just wasn't there in earlier versions. The inclusion of the original cover art was a bonus, as well. This is a heartbreaker--Ferrier's wonderful dark voice is unequalled in any other performance I've heard--including Walter's earlier recording with Thorberg, as well as Christa Ludwig's with Bernstein, etc. Julius Patzak approaches his parts with a passionate abandon that I prize as well. If you care anything about Mahler, you must own this recording, along with EMI's latest re-release of Ferrier's Kindertotenlieder. There's nothing to compare. One of the greatest of great recordings, and better than ever!

Now this recording is out of copyright it is beginning to turn up on several labels (e.g. Naxos). It is, after all, a classic recording. However, it was Decca who recorded it and they therefore are the ones who have access to the originals. So this is probably the best transfer, worth the extra cost over its rivals.

Its status as a classic is well deserved. Walter was a close colleague of the composer, talked through the work with him and conducted the world premiere after Mahler's death. It was a piece he had lived with for more than 40 years by the time this recording was made and his interpretation therefore at least deserves serious respect. Of course, it merits much more than that. Walter loved this music and invested it with all the depth of humanity he brought to everything he conducted. There is appropriate weight and thrust to the opening Trinklied, a logically consistent flow to the meandering melodic lines of the Einsame im Herbst, Schubertian delicacy in Von der Jugend and so on right through to the yearnings and final resigned acceptance of Der Abschied. This, as you might expect from Walter, is a Das Lied viewed from the Mozart, Schubert, Brahms end of the telescope rather than as the forerunner of Schoenberg, Berg, Webern and beyond. To that extent he could be said to smooth out some of the more abrasive orchestration, to soften the impact of the clashing harmonies in the great Funeral March and to try to integrate the often disparate and apparently unrelated contrapuntal melodic lines. For a contrasting point of view, you need to turn to Rattle, Boulez or, interestingly, Horenstein.

One of the chief raisons d'etre for this recording, of course, was the special relationship that had developed between Walter and Kathleen Ferrier.

For a performance more than 50 years old, it sounds really good. Kudos to the engineers; I never knew the early 50s recording can be that good. Kudos too to Bruno Walter, a close friend and great interpreter of Mahler, and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, certainly one of the world's finest orchestras.

Personally, I didn't really like Julius Patzak on the tenor. He sounded to mellow, less dramatic compared to James Kings on a rivalling performance done by Bernstein with the same orchestra (and the same label) 14 years later.

Kathleeen Ferrier, on the other hand, is an absolute winner. There's something really special about her performance that really makes me want to cry, particularily in the "Farewell" movement. She sounded very rich and warm when she was singing in moderate registers, but very sweet and delicate - fragile even as if she know she was going to live no longer - whenever she took the higher notes. By the time she sings "Everywhere the lovely earth blossoms" I was in tears, knowing that this would be one of her glorious moments in her career before dying of cancer. Fischer-Dieskau's performance (with Lenny) was touching in one thing, but Ferrier's performance was an excrutiating experience...

May her performance touch others... for ever... and ever.

There are times when you can't let something pass. I've heard this nonsense about how Bruno Walter "didn't understand Mahler." The fact that Walter knew Mahler well and worked with him gave him far better insight into the composer than those commenting almost a century after the fact. The poetry in this performance is there for those whose who are capable of hearing it. Stating that Ferrier was past her prime seems odd in that she was about 40 when this recording was made and if made in 1951 it would have been two years before her death. She was a true contralto (the voice for which the music was written)with a tonal color that any mezzo-soprano can only approximate. Regarding this not being opera it might do well to remember that Mahler was primarily a conductor of opera. Would this have influenced how he may have wanted this work performed? I think so.
