“At its finest – as it is here – Das Lied von der Erde is a work of profound poignancy; two superb soloists, and a conductor who beautifully shapes this performance, make it an unmissable release.”
“Mahler – Das Lied von der Erde,” performed by Sarah Connolly, Robert Dean Smith, Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and led by Vladimir Jurowski is Gramophone’s recording of the month! Read a glimpse of review below!
“I cannot stress enough how effectively Jurowski conveys the ethereal ‘natural world’ beauty of the score. It is cool and lucid and throughly autumnal. Like a true pantheist (and in complete kinship with Mahler) he stands back from it, marvelling at its intricacies while respecting the stillness and balance. You don’t hear that he loves the music too much – which is inescapable when you listen to the emotive Bernstein in his wonderful Vienna Philharmonic classic with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and James King.”
