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.
