5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Mahler by Dame Margaret Price 26 Sep 2011
By B. Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I saw the recording date on this album, I wondered if Dame Margaret would be in good voice. No fears on that score - her singing is as luminous as ever. While these may not be the very last word on these songs, her interpretation is fine and her enunciation very clear. She seems very much at home with German and with the Lieder style. There is the occasional hooty or overstressed note, but little else to cavil at. The piano playing is exquisite - delicate and subtle. Just for one example, the opening note and harplike figure which open "Ich atmet einen Linden Duft" brought on a gasp of delight. This program belongs with the best that singers like Fischer-Dieskau, Berry, and Ludwig have given us.
3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag 27 Mar 2013
By Mithrandir - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was a big fan of the late Welsh soprano Margaret Price. This recording of Mahler lieder is not up to her usual standards, however. Part of the problem, to my ears, is the accompanist, Thomas Dewey, a good many of whose contributions are distracting -- particularly in the Wayfarer and Knaben Wunderhorn selections. Price might have been shown to better advantage with the orchestral accompaniments. The Ruckert lieder fare better in his hands, though I could do with a little more restraint on the pianist's part in "Um Mitternacht."

Back to Price, she too does better in the Ruckert lieder than in the other selections on this disc. Also lovely is her rendition of "Urlicht" from Des Knaben Wunderhorn. Overall, however, this record is a disappointment. Those seeking top notch Margaret Price should look for her recital of Schubert lieder accompanied by Graham Johnson, her Wigmore Hall recital of Schubert, Mahler, and Strauss lieder (accompanied by Geoffrey Parsons), and her astonishingly good -- indeed, ravishing -- performances with Abbado of Berg's Lulu Suite and the Altenberg Lieder.

For more satisfying Mahler with female singers, try Janet Baker (with Barbirolli, not the fairest comparison because of the wonderful orchestral accompaniment), Christa Ludwig (who has recorded both with piano and orchestral accompaniment), Anne Sophie von Otter, Jessye Norman, and, for something special, Kathleen Ferrier's recordings of Mahler lieder (if you can find them).
