Notes & Reviews:

The incomparable lied baritone, Christian Gerhaher, revisits Gustav Mahler in his latest release Mahler: Orchestral Songs. Accompanied by the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, under the elegant baton of Kent Nagano, Gerhaher has recorded three Mahler song cycles in their authentic orchestral versions for the first time. On Mahler: Orchestral Songs, Gerhaher manages to blend with the compelling sound of the orchestra, but at the same time makes his baritone hover above the instruments, so that every word and nuance comes across without ever sounding forced. Simple in style and full of empathy, this is the art of song at its finest. Christian Gerhaher, along with his lied partner, pianist Gerold Huber, have performed on the stages of all the major recital centers around the world including Carnegie Hall in New York, Wigmore Hall in London, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam and the Cologne and Berlin Philharmonie. He is a regular at the Salzburg Festival, the London Proms and the Aspen and Tanglewood Festivals in the U.S. Aside from his lied singing, Gerhaher is also a highly sought-after performer on the opera stage and has appeared at the Teatro Real in Madrid, the Vienna State Opera, the Munich State Opera and the Royal Opera House in London, where, in 2011, he received the famous Laurence Olivier Award.
