Editorial Reviews

Product Description

In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Mahlers birth and just one month short of his own 85th birthday, composer-conductor Pierre Boulez marked his forty-five-year collaboration with the Cleveland Orchestra by directing this very special Mahler-only concert at Ohios splendid Severance Hall. Following the Adagio from the unfinished Tenth Symphony, he presented Twelve Songs from Des Knaben Wunderhorn with soloists Magdalena Koená and Christian Gerhaher, both much-sought-after opera and concert singers on the worlds leading stages. BONUS: Interview with Pierre Boulez

Review

Boulez’s Mahler has surely gained a degree of intensity over the years. Rather than sacrificing his legendary intellectual rigor, he has wedded it to a profound visceral understanding of this music. --WCLV classical FM

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 15, 2012
There are many recordings of the complete Des Knaben Wunderhorn cycle by Gustav Mahler - with orchestra, with piano and wither two singers or one singer - and most likely listeners have already selected their favorite(s). While Pierre Boulez has unlocked many mysteries in his recordings of the entire Mahler output and for the most part stands in rarefied air as an interpreter among the finest, this recording is somewhat disappointing. Yes, the music is still wonderful: Mahler loved these songs so well that he used them in his symphonies, either as songs (in the 3rd, and 4th symphonies) or as orchestral themes in others. But here there is an ambiguous leve of indecision in the manner in which Boulez approaches these youthful songs.

The two soloists are superb - Magdalena Kozená takes on her share of the songs with an aplomb and vocal finesse that sets her up as a fine Mahlerite and Christian Gerhaher sings these as if to the music born (his diction and phrasing and interpretation are exemplary). Boulez just doesn't seem fond of these works as his orchestral accompaniment is just that - accompaniment, not collaboration, in a cycle where the instrumental commentary should at least equal the singers' lines. This is not a bad performance: this is just not an uplifting one. Perhaps the fact that someone thought that acting out the lines of the songs would enhance the performances was the reason for capturing this on DVD. It can certainly be said that both Kozená and Gerhaher have stage magnetism and for this listener the performance of the songs as filmed seems more in keeping witht he feeling of the cycle than simply the aural form. It makes Boulez' interpretation more understandable.
