After the outstandingly successful first MPHIL release of Mahler’s Symphony No.2, now follows the release of the Symphony No.4 with which the orchestra’s history is so closely intertwined. The live concert recording released on this album took place at the Philharmonie im Gasteig in Munich, the orchestra’s home, with Salzburg soprano Genia Kühmeier. Another critically acclaimed performance took place in New York’s Carnegie Hall: ‘Mahler’s 4th Symphony was the real payoff, with exceptional playing from the strings and with the song of the finale gorgeously sung by Genia Kuehmeier’ (The New York Times, 6 April 2017).
Valery Gergiev has paid the Austro-German repertoire particular attention throughout his career, which ignited a lasting fascination for Gustav Mahler. Over recent decades he has continued to explore the Austro-German repertoire, garnering adulation, especially for his interpretations of Wagner, Strauss, Mahler and Bruckner – music that is at the very heart of the Munich Philharmonic’s repertoire. This second season with Maestro Gergiev as principal conductor has continued a stimulating artistic relationship with the orchestra. This success is repeatedly confirmed and reinforced by the audience, international and German press.
Recording date: 21-23 & 28 March 2017
