Founded in 1983 by Iván Fischer and Zoltán Kocsis, the Budapest Festival Orchestra has quickly cemented itself as one of the best formations in the world thanks to an exceptional ensemble of soloists, its cohesion and a particular warmth in its string sections. Numerous recordings have come to confirm their reputation of holding a extremely vast repertoire which dominates the works of Bartók, Kodály and Dvořák. It must now fight for its existence in the midst of considerable cuts imposed by the Hungarian government whose political ideas are opposed to those of the conductor and his musicians.


Recorded in 2017 at the Palais des Arts in Budapest after a series of concerts, this new version of The Song of the Earth by Gustav Mahler gets off to a striking start with an almost telluric force. The power and fragility of the tenor Robert Dean Smith is paradoxically moving when faced with the amplitude of the timbre and eloquent, authentic voice of the alto Gerhild Romberger, who's singing is accurate and homogenous across all registers.


At the podium, Iván Fischer sends forth the best of his imagination and a sense of subtlety by literally sculpting each lied until the deeply moving Abschied (“Adieu”) finale in which the tormented harmony opens a door to nothingness, in an almost serial atmosphere where the air becomes scarce. A great interpretation. © François Hudry/Qobuz

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.
