Pinnock's new Mahler on BBC In Tune
24 May 2013
On BBC Radio 3's 'In Tune', hosted by Sean Rafferty, the renowned Trevor Pinnock talks about his forthcoming album 'Mahler: Symphonie No.4'. The radio show - available to listen to online until 30th May 2013 - includes not only Trevor Pinnock's own description of this album but also an exclusive preview of the recording.
This is the Mahler, this is the Mahler as it was done in Schoenberg's private concert series and I'm doing a whole series of those Schoenberg associated arrangements... I've just recorded a Strauss waltz along with Bruckner's second symphony... The Mahler is one of the best pieces. Those were the concerts where Schoenberg didn't allow critics in. There was a notice outside the door: critics not allowed in. He didn't allow applause either.
