When everything is just right,
This review is from: Mahler: Das Lied Von Der Erde - Ludwig, Wunderlich, Klemperer (Audio CD)
This is an amazing recording. It's one of the few times that you feel that everything is totally right. Klemperer is delivering this symphony in a way that I haven't heard many times before. He adds a structure and a feeling of relation to the typical rhapsodic Mahler music.
Ludwig is superb here. Her voice has a richness and depth that got partially lost later in her career when she sang more higher opera roles.
The wonder in this recording is Wunderlich. I couldn't really imagine a Mozart and lieder singer be so perfect in this totally different music. But he gives voice both to the desperation and the lyrical flow.
