Product description

Product Description

After the highly acclaimed recordings of Mahler Symphonies no.1,2,4 and 6 Iván Fischer and his Budapest Festival Orchestra now recorded the Fifth Sympony with its famous Adagietto in F major for strings and harp - one of the most intimate pieces that Mahler ever wrote for the orchestra.According to Fischer the Fifth is the most Jewish of all Mahler's symphonies.The first movement takes us to the unmistakable mood of Jewish lamentation,the finale to the childlike vision of messianic joy.

Review

Mahler's Fifth Symphony (1902), sometimes compared with Beethoven's own of that number, begins with a sombre roar of fate and ends in triumph. After the opening trumpet cry, strings take over in muffled funereal gloom, setting the mood for the enormous five-movement work, the fourth of which is the celebrated Adagietto for strings and harp. Having recorded symphonies 1, 2, 4 and 6 to high praise, the great partnership of Iván Fischer and his Budapest players make music of supreme intimacy and vitality. They endow the work with a poise and lyricism too often sacrificed in favour of frenzied intensity. Abbado, Rattle, Bernstein, Chailly: you're spoilt for choice in this much recorded work. This might yet prove a favourite. The Observer --The Observer

Iván Fischer s Mahler Five with his Budapest Festival Orchestra lacks Zander s majesty, but offers playing of greater character. In a note Fischer declares the Fifth the most Jewish of the set: something we certainly sense in the rise and fall of Fischer s phrasings and the rhythms idiomatic snap. The warmth of the recorded sound spreads a faint blur over textures, which stops the symphony s drama becoming really lacerating. But gains arrive in the instrumental beauties, especially from the horns. Then there s the heartbreaking adagietto, performed with the fragile poise of musicians stepping over something very precious. Which they are. All in all, both these new Mahler releases can be welcomed into the fold. The Times --The Times
