"A powerful and riveting reading, carried by an orchestra admirably and precisely tuned by Steven Sloane. It is in the most tragic moments that the alchemy best succeeds - Der Tambourg'sell, of course, Zu Straßburg auf der Schanz. But in the elegant (Wo die schönen Trompeten blasen) there is an inwardness of the finest kind, to the point of the intangible," was Sylvain Fort's verdict in Diapason magazine on the recording, which was released by Avanticlassic. The recording served as the basis for Clara Pons' film project Wunderhorn.
Originally recorded for a film, this masterful interpretation of Mahler's Wunderhorn Lieder with baritone Dietrich Henschel and the Bochumer Symphoniker under Steven Sloane has now been released on CD.
The series of concerts celebrating Friedrich Cerha's 95th birthday culminated in August: the monumental Spiegel cycle was performed at the Salzburg Festival by the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra under Ingo Metzmacher. We celebrate the anniversary with a collection of portrait articles, current links, and his video interview for the Stadtjournal wien.at.
