BBC Review

This Mahler recital provokes comparisons with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Leonard Bernstein in many of the same songs back in 1968, and that’s already to pay the newcomer the highest of compliments. But Gerhaher’s eloquent sleeve notes take us back to Schumann and Schubert, and an approach to poetry that was barely alive when Mahler was writing his earliest songs. That’s partly what makes this early Mahler feel so natural with piano, but even in the songs conceived with orchestra, Gerhaher and Huber immerse you so successfully in their interior world that you barely register the orchestra’s absence.

The recital is beautifully planned, opening with the folksy simplicity of Rheinlegendchen, and a handful of songs that show Gerhaher to be more at ease with Mahler the rustic than Fischer-Dieskau, and with a more naturally beautiful tone and line. The four Wayfarer Songs introduce more emotional complexity, coloured with pain and sorrow, and Gerhaher’s lyric baritone deepens and darkens. The shadow of war looms over the next group; the eerie piano fanfares of Wo Die Schönen Trompeten Blasen (where the beautiful trumpets blow) are an alarm call as a soldier leaves his sweetheart, and Gerhaher conveys so much tenderness, and such piercing regret.

Then come Mahler’s five Rückert Songs, carefully reordered (they weren’t conceived as a cycle) to frame as their centrepiece what Gerhaher calls “the enigmatic, self-absorbed, and ultimately inscrutable Um Mitternacht” – the poet awake at midnight, bereft of all but the beating of his own heart: ‘one single pulse of agony’. Without orchestra, it’s stark and utterly devastating. And it’s left to Urlicht – the primal light from Mahler’s Second Symphony – to provide a glow of reassurance at the end of the recital.

Huber achieves pianistic miracles of colour and timing, and to call this a mature partnership barely begins to address the depth of their mutual understanding. The recording feels as truthful as the performances, and at a time when we seem to be overwhelmed by new recordings of Mahler’s symphonies, might I humbly suggest that this could be the finest Mahler you’ll hear all year? Absolutely essential. --Andrew McGregor

Format: Audio CD
There is a plethora of recordings of Mahler's songs. Few great singers can resist the challenge of participating in one of the cycles or giving a solo recital. But this new entry is very special. Christian Gerhaber has the kind of velvety baritone admirably suited to these songs and his interpretation admirably accompanied by pianist Gerold Huber are highly sensitive. My own library is perhaps over-crowded with Mahler symphonies, song cycles and song recitals - but this is already a favorite.

First and foremost these are beautiful performances: the Huber Gerhaher partnership is made in heaven. Their synergy enables natural performances where every note, phrase, line is just right! There is no affectation. Christian Gerhaher has a voice that is a joy to hear equally matched by Gerald Huber's amazing playing and sound.
...and the Mahler songs...? If you are familiar with them, they will need no introduction. If you are not, but you enjoy song, you will not be disappointed.

This fine baritone, Christian Gerhaher, wasn`t familiar to me until, about one month ago, I heard him singing two of Bach`s Cantatas and Zelenka`s Lamentationes as the soloist of our Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Heinz Holliger. I was totally charmed: What a voice!
I`m just a common listener of classical music, I like beautiful and not too modern music. I can`t write any profound evaluations of musical performances. But I can say I loved to listen to Christian Gerhaher.
Gustav Mahler has never been one of my great favourites, and I`m ashamed to admit that I`ve been a bit reluctant to Lieder on the whole. But that`s over now, along with this divine vocalist! Luckily for me he has recorded plenty of CDs with his regular piano partner Gerold Huber and with some orchestras, too. I started my collection with this wonderful CD of Mahler`s Lieder and I`ve already enjoyed it several times.

This CD won in 2010 The German Record Critique`s Award and Edison Award and in 2011 International Classical Music Award.
