    Mahler: Symphony No. 4 - Ivan Fisher : Budapest Festival Orchestra

    Ivan Fischer writes of Mahler's masterpiece, "There is a unique purity and transparency in Mahler's 4th Symphony. The enchanting sleigh bells take us to his inner child, to his dreams of angels, fairy tales, angst and pure, divine love. This child-like symphony needed a different orchestra: no dark tuba, no heavy trombones, no large arsenal of massive brass. A chamber orchestra in fact, where the clarinets act as mock trumpets, the solo violin tunes his strings sharper in order to scare us and the lightness of the whole orchestra lifts us up to his lovely, childish vision of paradise."

    I'm simply in love with this music.
    More pure and raw emotions is hard to achieve I think.
    2 viola da gambas only, but boy, what do they convey!

    This is heavenly music, and in heavy rotation here.
    Excellently sung, it includes 3 world premiere recordings.

    This is a lovely box.
    It has 6 CD's with Bach's Overtures, Brandenburger Concertos, Harpsichord Concertos, Violin Concertos, Oboe Concertos.
    All this is played marvelously, and very well recorded too.
    A big thumbs up!

    I've been listening a lot to Shostakovich the last months.
    This is the first album in a series of SACD's that covers the complete string quartets.
    A good way to dip into his very special world. Sounds good to!
