ArtistsGerhild Romberger (alto)
Cantemus Children’s Choir
Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks
Budapest Festival Orchestra
No fewer than six movements, the richest of orchestral forces, and a contralto soloist and boys’ and women’s choirs whose sung texts help to bring across the Symphony’s message, as in the Second Symphony and later in the Fourth and Eighth as well.
Gerhild Romberger’s extremely extensive repertoire encompasses all the major contralto and mezzo-soprano parts in the oratorio and concert literature from the Baroque to the Classical and Romantic periods all the way to the twentieth century.
‘There is something divine in the wealth of this great masterpiece.’ - Iván Fischer
‘the great partnership of Iván Fischer and his Budapest players make music of supreme intimacy and vitality. They endow the work with a poise and lyricism too often sacrificed in favour of frenzied intensity...’ - The Observer, 17 November 2013 ****
‘Fischer is faithful to Mahler’s score, yet lays bare this music’s poignant sense of a leave-taking, even if it was not to be the composer’s last word on the symphony.’ - Sunday Times, 14 June 2015
‘Fischer gives us the edginess of Bernstein without his tendency to wallow. ...it's the small things that so often strike sparks’ - Gramophone Magazine, June 2015
