MAHLERMANIANico and the Navigators & Deutsche Oper Berlin
with Ioannis Avakoumidis, Annedore Kleist, Anna-Luise Recke, Patric Schott, Frank Willens, Katarina Bradi mezzo-soprano, Simon Pauly baritone
Nico and the Navigators tackle the cosmos of Mahler's songs in an evening of poetical and physicalexpression that endeavours to distil this sifting of senses for the stage.
A production of Nico and the Navigators and Deutsche Oper Berlin, recorded live at Tischlerei, Deutsche Oper Berlin, December 2012, with members of Deutsche Oper Berlin.
Gustav Mahler's music is a mass of contrasts and dualities linked only by a weak tissue of shifting balances. Each song marks a way-station along a road that leads from the romantic idylls of the "Wunderhorn" via the familial intimacy of the "RückertLieder" to the contemplative outlook of Far Eastern lyricism in the "Lied von der Erde".Picture format DVD:
