[8] INTERVIEW: August 1949

Kathleen Ferrier’s premature death, on 8 October 1953 at the age of 41, took everybody by surprise due to the veil of silence behind which she had hidden her illness, whereby the public was not in the least prepared to this fatal outcome. To celebrate Kathleen Ferrier’s hundredth birthday, we are releasing the present SACD with excerpts from the Lied von der Erde broadcasted from the Salzburg Festival in 1949, with the Wiener Philarmoniker under Bruno Walter, as well as a very rare interview.

Previously unissued Mahler archives

Tah 642-644 - Previously unissued Mahler archives

CD I: Symphony No. 1 (Staatskapelle Dresden, J. Keilberth conducting) 4.II.1950
CD II: Symphony No. 2 (NWDR Sinfonieorchester, Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt conducting, soloists: Oda Balsborg and Sieglinde Wagner) 12.XI.1956
CD III: Symphony No. 4 (Städtisches Opernhaus- und Museumsorchester, Bruno Walter conducting, soloist: Annelies Kupper) 4.IX.1950

One of the essential traits in Mahler’s creation is the fact that his works consist only of Lieder and symphonies. This apparently fortuitous fact is of capital importance: in fact it is the vivifying source of the Lied that nourished in him the symphonic flow and conditioned its evolution, at least in the first four symphonies.
The present three recordings come from German archives (Keilberth in Dresden, Schmidt-Isserstedt in Hamburg and Walter in Frankfurt).

Haydn: Symphony No. 96, Mozart: Symphony No. 38, Brahms: Symphony No. 2, Wagner: Siegfried Idyll, R. Strauss: Don Juan, Mahler: Symphony No. 4 - Orchestre National de France, Maria Stader, Soprano - Direction: Bruno Walter (Live May 5 and 12, 1955)
Bruno Walter only came rather late to France where he only gave a few concerts: for the first time in 1928, at a Mozart Festival and then after the war, in 1952, 1955 and 1956.
The present two concerts were given at Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in May 1955 and were recorded in excellent conditions by the French Radio and are released her complete, from the master tapes.
The programme includes some of the usual works from his repertoire, particularly the Brahms Second that was his preferred one, and the Mahler Fourth, performed by Maria Stader as soloist, whose «childlike» voice does wonders…

Press review
« Dynamique incommensurablement supérieure à celle de l'édition Hunt. La 2e de Brahms est extrêmement excitante avec un Walter littéralement allumé dans le finale. » (Répertoire)
« Bénéficiant d'un remarquable report, les présentes interprétations déjà rééditées dans de moins bonnes conditions par Music and Arts et Urania, concilient la grandeur légèreté, la plénitude et la luminosité. La symphonie n° 40 est empreinte d'une sereine gravité et d'une extrême flexibilité: ce Mozart chante, respire, émeut, et frappe par la justesse des tempi, du climat et des phrasés. » (Monde de la Musique)
