Notes & Reviews:
Continuing his critically acclaimed survey of Mahler's works, Markus Stenz brings together no fewer than five renowned choral ensembles from Bonn and Cologne for this recording.
... very well sung by Michaela Schuster... Stenz... marshals the members of five different choruses to very fine effect in this recording, creating a warm and focused sound picture... Musically, this is a sensitive and, yes, elegant performance, with warm and fully committed playing by the Gürzenich-Orchester Köln that pulls listeners along through intense drama, to mildness and uncertainty, to an eventual feeling of relief and joyous affirmation. Surely those are the valleys and peaks through which Mahler wanted his audiences to journey.
