Editorial Reviews

Das Lied is considered the most personal of Mahler's works. It represents a synthesis of the two great pillars in Mahler's oeuvre, the symphony and the song. Coote and Fritz are the best-known soloists for this work, and they perform it with top orchestras all over the world.

My sole focus of interest in this recording was Alice Coote. I had the privilege of hearing her in this very piece in October 2011 at the RFH with Maazel and the Philharmonia, and partnered by the reliable but unremarkable Stefan Vinke.
As I really don't need to need to add to my collection of now 71 recordings of this work, with which I am obviously obsessed, It was primarily as a souvenir of a great performance that I decided to purchase the disc-not a great reason, I admit-but BOY! Am I glad I did as the whole enterprise is absolutely superb!

The recording is in the most spacious detailed sound I can recall, with incredible transparency, even in the weightiest moments, and I have heard orchestral detail never before revealed on recording-and this is in stereo!
In SACD it is even more astounding-true "state of the art".

The voices are captured in an ideal vocal balance, just as one would hear in the concert hall, occasionally coming near to but just avoiding being swamped by the orchestra-and what an orchestra!
I am totally taken aback by the virtuosity of the playing of the Netherlands Philharmonic-the richness of the brass, the lush sonority of the strings, the crystalline brilliance of the high woodwinds and the impact of the percussion give us one of the most impressive orchestral performances against ALL rivals-Vienna, Berlin, BRSO and Concertgebouw included!
The Netherlanders yield nothing in terms of sheer excellence to their colleagues in the Concertgebouw.

Marc Albrecht is a conductor for whom I have had muted enthusiasm in the past-but here he excels, taking a forthright, thrusting view and shaping individual sections in an original and telling manner.

I am an addict for Das Lied von der Erde, and so this is joining my many copies, both in CD and in LP. First, I will tell you that my all-time favorite is the recording done by Fritz Wunderlich and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau with Joseph Keilberth conducting the Bamberg Symphony. There seem to be two recordings, one from 1963 (my favorite) and the other from 1964. The latter is about 3 minutes slower than the first, and most of that timing difference occurs in Der Abschied (2 minutes). The sound is not the greatest, but the emotion put into the recordings is the greatest. The first recording from 1963 is on Cin Cin CCCD 1026 and is long out of print. This was made just after the death of Fischer-Dieskau's wife and may account for the emotional content he gives the recording. Additionally, I was surprised and pleased to find that Joseph Keilberth is a truly fine Mahler interpreter! Now, that said, I find this recording to be quite fine, but just not quite in the same league, although the Super Audio CD sound is obviously better. The PentaTone recording is somewhat bright, and if you have bright sounding speakers you may need some tone control, if possible. Additionally, on some of the louder vocal parts for Burkhard Fritz such as in Das Trinklied the voice is just a little over-saturated, and very, very slightly distorted. Very minor, but there. Burkhard Fritz' tenor voice is quite good, and I have nothing but praise for his singing. I did miss the dramatic emphasis on the phrase "Dunkel ist das Leben, ist der Tod" that Wunderlich gives in the Cin Cin recording...there it is almost frighteningly emphatic. Fritz merely sings the phrase. Ms. Coote has a lighter mezzo voice, but quite nice.Read more ›

The modern history of Das Lied recordings began with a Decca LP featuring Kathleen Ferrier as alato soloist, conducted by Bruno Walter with the Vienna Phil. Ferrier's memory is sainted, not least because of her tragic early death from cancer, and the British tradition continued with Janet Baker, who made Das Lied her own in the Seventies. Can British mezzo Alice Coote, now 45, carry the torch? The dark coloration of her voice places her closer in vocal quality to Ferrier than to Baker. Here she is captured in up to date surround sound that is completely full and natural even when heard in two-channel stereo.

I skipped immediately to the crowning glory of Mahler's score, Abschied, the half-hour song that concludes the work in heartbreak and transcendence. Set against fine playing from the Netherlands Radio Phil., Coote has been captured a little to far away, in a fairly resonant ambience, for optimal impact. But there's no doubt that she is a very musical, sensitive singer, one of the best to be heard in this movement since Baker (I'd add Anne Sophie von Otter and the late Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, neither of whom made commercial recordings, unfortunately, along with the great Christa Ludwig, who made several). Coote's voice is beautiful and she communicates a rapt sense of loneliness and serenity, the very hallmark of the song. Yet I'm not quite sure we're hearing the full stretch of her involvement, because conductor Marc Albrecht's anodyne orchestral work is nothing special - if only Coote had had an Abbado, Jurowski, or Gergiev to work with. Albrecht's rendition of Abschied is basically shapeless; even so, Coote rises to intense emotional heights on her own.
