Notes & Reviews:
Last year's Mahler In Manchester festival was "a sensory experience like no other," according to the Sunday Times, not least for the Manchester Camerata's revelatory performance of Das Lied von der Erde in the scaled-down chamber version by Schoenberg. The chamber arrangement came about through Schoenberg's Vienna-based Association for Private Musical Performances, founded in 1918. Conducted by Douglas Boyd, Manchester Camerata's performance of this transcription loses nothing of the astonishing sonic allure of the original - an ideal memento of an enlightening festival celebrating the music of Mahler.Notes & Reviews:
