This is the best Boulez recording in quite a while. He offers the canonic 12 Wunderhorn songs, meaning no Urlicht and no Das himmlische Leben in the original orchestration before it became the finale of the Fourth Symphony. You won't miss them. None of the songs are done as duets, and you won't be bothered by that either. The singing is exceptional: Magdalena Kozená combines a sweet timbre with plenty of personality and attention to the words; Christian Gerhaher's light, somewhat grainy baritone may not be to all tastes, but his unfailing musicality and his gusto (singing but never shouting) in the big "military" songs carries the day.

Thanks to the surprising proliferation of Mahler’s music on DVD, there are multiple performances of this particular symphony with which to compare this new one (not least among them Bernstein’s and Abbado’s); there is also Boulez’s own previous performance with the Vienna Philharmonic, made a couple of months after this concert, available on one generous DG CD, to consider by way of comparison.

The history of chamber arrangements of Mahler’s symphonies goes back to the aftermath of the First World War. At that time Arnold Schoenberg founded the Society for Private Musical Performances (Verein für musikalische Privataufführungen), devoted to the performance of contemporary scores at the highest standards. The limited means of the society prevented the performance of the orchestral works in its original form, so they were done in specially adapted chamber arrangements. The performances were guided by a lack of concession to both the audience and critics alike, repeated hearing of the same works and a profuse number of rehearsals from the musicians. Allegedly, the indifference towards any form of failure or success was absolute.

The musical reconstructions industry keeps gathering pace, but few works have attracted as much attention as Mahler's 10th Symphony. Joe Wheeler (who died in 1977) was a brass-playing British civil servant with a passion for Mahler. This completion (itself in an edition by the conductor here, Robert Olson) uses the leaner orchestration of the composer's later years. But does it sound Mahlerian? Certainly more so than Remo Mazzetti's 1997 version, but neither caps Deryck Cooke's acute sense of authentic detail and color in his legendary edition.

A century after his death, Gustav Mahler is the most important composer of modern times. Displacing Beethoven as a box-office draw, heard in Hollywood films and on state occasions, his music inspires particular devotion. Some believe it helps heal emotional wounds, others find intellectual fascination in its contradictory meanings, and many feel that the music captures the yearnings and anxieties of our post-industrial society. In this highly original account of the composer's life and work, Norman Lebrecht explores the Mahler Effect, asking why Mahler's music has become the soundtrack to our twenty-first-century lives.

Having recorded some works with a large orchestra in January 1983, in January 1984, Frank Zappa arranged for some of his chamber works to be performed by Pierre Boulez's Ensemble InterContemporain, a 16-piece group. "The Perfect Stranger," "Naval Aviation In Art?," and "Dupree's Paradise" were given this treatment, and the four remaining tracks are the product of Zappa's music synthesizer, the Synclavier. As usual, Zappa's "serious" works are rhythmically interesting and make for challenging listening. Originally released on LP on the classical Angel/EMI label, this album was reissued on CD on Zappa's Barking Pumpkin label in 1992, at which time he resequenced it.

With this new recording of the monumental Symphony no. 8, legendary conductor Pierre Boulez brings his acclaimed Mahler symphonies cycle to a spectacular conclusion

Boulez teams up with Barenboim’s Staatskapelle Berlin, the Berlin State Opera and Radio Choruses, as well as a strong cast of soloists including Michelle DeYoung to deliver his long-awaited reading of what is arguably one of Mahler’s biggest and most impressive scores, also known as “Symphony of a Thousand” due to the large number of musicians needed to perform the piece

This release crowns a more-than-decade-long project involving all the symphonies and major orchestral works of Gustav Mahler – a project that is both of highest personal value to Maestro Boulez and an important document of Mahler interpretation

“Boulez’s Mahler is revelatory in its leanness . . . a life-changing experience for anyone who thought they knew their Mahler.” (Financial Times)
