CD Review- Nottingham Post on Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde arr. Schoenberg

From the June 10, 2011 Nottingham Post
Orchestra Of The Swan/Soloists: Mahler Lieder

 

Contralto Emma Curtis displays ardour in Mahler’s hour-long Song Of The Earth, with Brennen Guillory in the role of tipsy tenor. This setting of poems from the Chinese has Viennese accents which the orchestra capture perfectly under Kenneth Woods, their American principal  guest conductor. Schoenberg’s delightful arrangement of Mahler’s Songs Of A Wayfarer finds baritone David Stout in magnificent voice.
