Album Summary

Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Rafael Kubelik never made a studio recording of Das Lied von der Erde, but even if he had I doubt it would have been better than this simply stunning performance taken from a live concert on February 27, 1970. First, there's no need to make allowances for the sound: the engineers have captured an amazingly realistic and well balanced picture of both singers and orchestra, with every word perfectly clear and the voices well integrated into the musical texture. Few studio recordings enjoy such success. The audience remains on best behavior throughout, extremely quiet and attentive--and no wonder!... In short, in a work that doesn't lack for excellent recordings this one stands among the best, and I won't argue with anyone who comes away from this performance convinced that there are none better." -Classics Today (10/10)
