Performance: 4 stars / Sound: 4 stars 'Trevor Pinnock's direction of the excellent RAM Soloists Ensemble, and nicely captured in this warm, close, yet clear recording.' BBC Music Magazine

'All four works together make for a well-balanced programme and the playing of the Royal Academy of Music chamber soloists is pleasingly flexible throughout, Linn’s excellent engineering airy but detailed…The Wagner is beautifully mellow.' Gramophone

'The performances of baritone Gareth Brynmor John in the Mahler and mezzo-soprano Katie Bray in the Zemlinsky are especially warm and intimate in this setting… recommended for all listeners.' AllMusic.com

4.5 stars 'The (Siegfried Idyll) work's beauty, charm and intimacy is conveyed in a way that full orchestral accounts can never match, and one could hardly imagine a finer performance than it receives here from the excellent Royal Academy of Music Soloists Ensemble.' SA-CD.net

 

Mahler: Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (arr. Schoenberg) is the third in the series which sees Trevor and the Academy perform and record works which are retrospectively reigniting Schoenberg's vision of performing chamber reductions of symphonic repertoire. 

The works in this recording transport us to a period of vast musical change: in Mahler we hear nostalgia welded with modernism; with Wagner, we hear the sunset of Romanticism; with Zemlinsky we hear the seeds of fin-de-siècle Vienna; and in all, the extremities of emotion distilled into non-symphonic forces. Arnold Schoenberg's own arrangement of Mahler's intensely personal song cycle is followed by Erwin Stein's arrangement of Busoni's landmark composition Berceuse élégiaque.

Specially commissioned for this chamber series is Christopher Austin's arrangement of Zemlinsky's evocative Sechs Gesänge, which enjoys its premiere recording here. Closing the disc is Wagner's infamous Siegfried Idyll.

The arrangements for chamber forces serve to illuminate the original scores; the clarity achieved in these performances expose revealing new insights.

'Pinnock delivers a demonstration-quality set including Mahler's Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen and a gorgeous Siegfried Idyll.'


BBC Music Magazine
4 Stars
'Busoni's unsettling Berceuse elegiaque creates recessions of instrumental mist, beautifully poised in Trevor Pinnock's direction of the excellent RAM Soloists Ensemble, and nicely captured in this warm, close, yet clear recording.'

BBC Radio 3 ‘CD Review’
'These fine young musicians show no frailty in the Busoni, Wagner's Siegfried Idyll or the chamber version of the songs by Zemlinsky and Shoenberg's own arrangements of Mahler's Wayfarer...'

Crescendo
« La mezzo Katie Bray fait merveille dans Zemlinsky avec son timbre large et ses aigus moelleux. Son interprétation délicate sert fort bien la poésie de Maeterlinck (dans une traduction allemande), toute en évocation. »

WDR 3 Musik TonArt
,,Wenn ein Dirigent wie Trevor Pinnock mit seinen Erfahrungen aus der Alten Musik auf so wunderbar uneitle Weise sich dem spätromantischen Repertoire nähert, ist das ein Gewinn. Vieles wirkt graziler, weniger fett und dadurch unmittelbarer.''

AllMusic
4½ Stars
'The performances of baritone Gareth Brynmor John in the Mahler and mezzo-soprano Katie Bray in the Zemlinsky are especially warm and intimate in this setting...these performances are so ingratiating, this hybrid SACD is recommended for all listeners.'

Gramophone
'Katie Bray's mezzo is richly spiced and colourful in potent performances of the Zemlinsky, and Austin's new arrangements manage to capture the best of both worlds, encompassing the quasi-symphonic and the beautifully intimate.'

Pizzicato
,,Bei soviel Sorgfalt verwundert es, dass Pinnock dafür eine so vibratoreiche Stimme wie die der jungen britischen Mezzosopranistin Katie Bray zuließ. Sie ist zwar, was Färbung und Expressivität angeht...''


Artistxite
,,Trevor Pinnock und sein 18-köpfiges Ensemble überzeugen durch höchste spielerische Präzision und bemerkenswerte Expressivität. Diese Kammerfassungen eröffnen einen luftigen, transparenten Blick auf eine Fülle verborgener Details.''
