5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect., 10 Feb 2005
This review is from: Mahler: Songs (Audio CD)
This recording is just simply fantastic. Genz has a wonderful instrument and uses it to astonishing effect. I couldn't imagine there ever being better accounts, (male voice, anyway).
Roger Vignoles' phrasing is beautiful throughout, though a little unimaginative in the Rueckert lieder. It's lovely to have the Mahler cycles with piano as they were originally composed. The Kindertotenlieder is also very succesful even though this is a piano reduction.
This is a hugely valuable recording, any lieder lover should rush to purchase this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, especially for any pianist who loves Mahler, 13 Aug 2012
This review is from: Mahler: Songs (Audio CD)
The 21 songs on this album encompass a variety of Mahler's lieder. The accompanying piano is unusual for these songs but the effect is just fantastic. An absolute bargain and produced to extremely high standards. The singing and piano playing is superb. It's amazing how evocative the solo piano is of the full orchestra, encompassing the full range of the keyboard and played with panache and verve!
