Magdalena Kozená (Mezzo-Soprano)
Magdalena Kožená’s silken mezzo delivers definitive interpretations of this luscious and enchanting orchestral-song repertoire.
Magdalena Kožená, Sir Simon Rattle, and the Berliner Philharmoniker seduce in Ravel’s Shéhérazade, stir and awe in Dvorák’s austere Biblische Lieder, and render to the fullest the bittersweet potency of Mahler’s intricately orchestrated Rückert Lieder.
Recorded live at the Berlin Philharmonie, these performances excite with the intense musical understanding shared by this husband-and-wife musical dream-team.
This is the first in a new series of recording projects reviving the legendary partnership between DG and the Berliner Philharmoniker.
