ArtistsGerhild Romberger (mezzo-soprano)
Frauenchor des Bayerischen Rundfunks
Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks
Of the six powerful movements, the slow fourth one requires not only a large orchestra but also a mezzo-soprano solo for a setting of the “Midnight Song” (“O Man! Take heed!”) from Friedrich Nietzsche's poetical-philosophical Thus Spoke Zarathustra, while in the cheerful fifth movement the mezzo-soprano soloist is joined by a children’s choir and a female chorus for the song “Es sungen drei Engel” from Des Knaben Wunderhorn. The symphony is a huge challenge for all its performers, and this concert recording of June 2016 has a prestigious line-up: guest conductor Bernard Haitink with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, the Augsburger Domsingknaben and the Frauenchor des Bayerischen Rundfunks; the solo parts are sung by Gerhild Romberger.
