Word Premier Recording - Fourth Quartet "The Starry Sky"The title of Philippe Hersant's 4th Quartet, The Starry Sky immediately informs the listener that this piece alludes to Beethoven, since the starry sky is an emblematic Beethovenian topos. It appears in the following quote by Kant "the moral law within us and the starry sky above our heads" which Beethoven wrote in his personal journal in 1820 (aphorism No. 146).

With Gustav Mahler, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra has a very special relationship. The composer conducted the orchestra no less than 12 times and found in Amsterdam an understanding audience. Mahler's Fourth Symphony was premiered in Amsterdam by the composer, who conducted it twice, once before and once after the interval, so that the audience could get to know the work better. With this release, Mariss Jansons and the Concertgebouw orchestra add an impressive new chapter to the RCO’s recorded history of Mahler Symphonies.

After Mahler's Second (RCO 17003), the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Daniele Gatti present the SACD edition of this beloved Fourth Symphony.

Throughout his life, Gustav Mahler grappled with existential questions which were a source of both torment and inspiration for him. Perhaps the most important of these involved the existence of an afterlife, a theme which informs his first four symphonies to varying degrees, and which helps explain why Mahler considered his Symphony No. 4 from 1900 to be the conclusion of a ‘fully self-contained tetra- logy’.

Gustav Mahlers Symphony No.4 portrays another side of the composer, one hitherto unseen by the general public. No major battles are fought in this symphony; rather it is a childlike vision of life and a better world in the Hereafter. On this new Pentatone release, Marc Albrecht, its chief conductor, leads the Netherlands Philharmonic in performance of this work. The soprano Elizabeth Watts, whose voice was described by Intl Record Review as one of the most beautiful Britain has produced in a generation, is the touching last movements featured soloist.

The Belgium-based ambient neo-classical composer-director went into her studio sessions with a whole bunch of ideas for her small army of enchanted well-wishers, which included the likes of Steve Hauschildt, John Also Bennett, Angel Deradoorian, Clarice Jensen, Beatrijs De Klerck, and members of Belgium's Echo Collective. She planned on making an album balanced between heavily composed pieces and her kind of post-improv collaborations, where session musicians were free to add to or subtract from their collective efforts. When it came time to mix the results, the album ended up being entirely spontaneous, and it's all the better for it.
