About

Schönberg's mammoth opus concurrently proved his greatest public success – the Gurrelieder, premièred in 1913. No less than 150 orchestra musicians, five vocal soloists as well as three great German radio choruses populated the stage of the Munich Philharmonie in the Gasteig in October of 2009.

The performance, marking the Symphonieorchester's 60th anniversary and led by Chief Conductor Mariss Jansons, was grandiose, the audience and press response appropriately exuberant. To this day, the late romantic sound images, which seem not to fit in with the hackneyed cliché of twelve tone composer Schönberg (he first began concerning himself with this technique much later), directly stir every listener, and anyone who loves Strauss and Mahler should definitely not miss out on the Gurrelieder.

This is the only available DVD of the Gurrelieder, and it includes bonus material (introduction to the work, interviews).

Soloists:
- Deborah Voigt: soprano (Tove)
- Mihoko Fujimura: mezzo soprano (Wood-Dove)
- Stig Andersen: tenor (Waldemar)
- Herwig Pecoraro: tenor (jester)
- Michael Volle: baritone (peasant, speaker)
