The Cleveland Orchestra

Pierre Boulez, conductor

Recorded live at Severance Hall in Cleveland, Ohio. February 2010

Gustav Mahler

Adagio from Symphony No. 10 in F-sharp major

Twelve Songs from Des Knaben Wunderhorn

 

In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Mahler's birth and just one month short of his own 85th birthday, composer-conductor Pierre Boulez marked his forty-five-year collaboration with The Cleveland Orchestra by directing this very special Mahler-only concert at Ohio's splendid Severance Hall. Following the Adagio from the unfinished Tenth Symphony, he presented Twelve Songs from Des Knaben Wunderhorn with soloists Magdalena Kozena and Christian Gerhaher, both much-sought-after opera and concert singers on the world's leading stages. "Boulez's Mahler has surely gained a degree of intensity over the years. Rather than sacrificing his legendary intellectual rigor, he has wedded it to a profound visceral understanding of his music."
