Notes & Reviews:
First choice, Deutsche Grammophon's new original album series, continues and offers 10 appealing new titles. This is the third batch of 10. Earlier releases have sold 35,000 units!
The look-fresh, modern, easy to grasp: original album covers newly presented in a Polaroid-style frame, Polaroid look carried through in the booklet series blurb on spine "Original Album Series".
Generous presentation: New booklet notes (English, German, French) on the artist and recordings by expert authors and critics. Sung texts and translations are included in the vocal items.
Generous digital bonus content - audio tracks of complete works, not just movements or extracts, video clips, listening guides and original booklets - available exclusively to the purchaser of the CDs.
James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, June 2014
Mexican tenor Francisco Araiza may not be everyone's immediate choice for this piece, but I like the way he brings out the lyricism in Mahler's writing. He is joined by Brigitte Fassbaender, who gives us a moving account of the final movement, ably assisted by the Berlin Philharmonic and Carlo Maria Giulini.
Recording information: Berlin, Philharmonie (02/1984).
