|Gustav Mahler|| |
Symphony No. 3 in D minor
Michaela Schuster (Mezzo-Soprano)
Choir of Cologne City Opera, Cologne Cathedral Children’s Choir
The Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne has a long tradition with the symphonies of Gustav Mahler. For example, his Fifth Symphony was premiered there in 1904.
Mahler himself was of the opinion that his Third Symphony would be a tough nut to crack for all those who were unfamiliar with his earlier works. That is undoubtedly a matter of opinion. In the new recording under the direction of Markus Stenz, the nut will definitely be cracked. Michaela Schuster will certainly also be the nutcracker with the grandiose alto solo “O Mensch, gib’ Acht”.
