Mahler: Symphony no 4 / A. Komsi, R. Norrington, Stuttgart

Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 4 in G major
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This is the second Mahler symphony to be recorded by the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra under the direction of acclaimed conductor Roger Norrington. Like the 'First Symphony' recording, which appeared in 2005 to great critical acclaim, it embodies historical performing practices such as orchestra size, seating, style, and sound, which the RSO and Norrington have put at the forefront of their work together perhaps since Bruno Walter's live recording of the Ninth with the Vienna Philharmonic in 1938. This is Mahler as he has not been heard since he originally wrote the work and is an essential listening experience today.

Gramophone Magazine
This scrupulously prepared, gently radical take on a familiar score could well appeal to those not normally drawn to the composer...everything unfolds with seductive song-like grace...the bucolic woodwinds make their points without strain, quieter moments gently sweetened, never thickened, by the use of gut strings.
