Surprise Mahler from Teodor Currentzis wMusicAeterna / The New York Times

Bookmark and Share

For the very first time, Teodor Currentzis and his orchestra MusicAeterna have recorded a work by Gustav Mahler – his mighty Sixth Symphony. The new recording was just released on 26 October. The CD and digital will be followed by the release of the recording on vinyl in December. Long an admirer of Mahler's works, Currentzis states that he considers the 6th Symphony to be "…a masterpiece"… and Mahler to be "a great interpreter who takes a simple idea, finds the beauty inside it and amplifies it for all to see…he crafts something magical". 

from The New York Times..... Hi, listeners! Lovers of the Russian conductor Teodor Currentzis - I count myself as one, while recognizing that some strongly disagree - got a treat this morning: A surprise drop of new Mahler. The unexpected album release is now a common phenomenon in pop, but somewhat rarer in classical, so I'll be listening to this sure-to-be-divisive account of the Sixth Symphony along with you.
