Notes and Editorial Reviews

Manchester Camerata, conducted by Music Director Douglas Boyd, give a vivid and memorable performance of Schoenberg’s chamber transcription of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde.

The 2010 Mahler in Manchester festival was “A sensory experience like no other,” according to The Sunday Times, not least for the Manchester Camerata’s revelatory performance of Das Lied von der Erde in the scaled-down chamber version by Schoenberg. The poignancy of Mahler’s “Song of the Earth” is highlighted by the reduced forces: just 16 performers, including the distinctive chimes of harmonium, celeste and piano.
