Emerson String Quartet & Barbara Hannigan - Infinite Voyage - Europadisc

This is as immersive an account of this masterpiece as we’ve heard ... Hannigan’s minutely attentive yet thrillingly communicative singing brings the despairing ‘Litanei’ and the gradually more ecstatic and intense ‘Entrückung’ urgently to life ... The Emersons have a similar command of expressionist and early modernist nuance throughout this landmark work, and it sets the seal on one hell of a final bow: a powerful end to a glorious career on record!
