Notes and Editorial Reviews
Version for Chamber Ensemble by Arnold Schoenberg, completed by Rainer Riehn.
While the magnificent sound of the gigantic orchestra brings forth the vocal and symphonic art of Gustav Mahler's appealing setting of Chinese poetry, this sophisticated arrangement for fourteen instruments begun by Arnold Schönberg and completed by Rainer Riehn, offers intimate insights into this composition’s subtle vocal refinements. The chamber version imparts a rewarding new look – as this SACD recording by Gerhild Romberger and Stephan Rügamer with the outstanding forces of the Detmold Chamber Orchestra demonstrates. Under the conductor Alfredo Perl, the small, colorful orchestra takes us on a vocal excursion into an imaginative
Chinese poetic world that melds Viennese fin de siècle with chamber music suppleness. -
