Tah 497/498 - Scherchen conduct Mahler : Symphonie no 3

CD 1: Symphonie no 3 en ré mineur
CD 2: Symphonie no 3 en ré mineur - Symphonie no 10 : Adagio (Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Leipzig - Viola : Sona Cervena) Live 1 and 4.X.1960

In September-October 1960, Scherchen was invited to Leipzig (where he had much conducted in the Twenties and Thirties) to give two Mahler concerts with the Czech singer Sona Cervena. These concerts were very successful and the third Mahler Symphony was Tahra's very first release in 1992. Because of the recent advancements in restoration and mastering techniques, we decided to reissue this CD with a important improvement of sound. The booklet contains an detailed account of the history of the Musica Viva Orchestra of Vienna that Scherchen founded with the support of Alma Mahler, in order to give the entire work of Mahler in concert. The Anschluss put an end to the history of this orchestra.
