At the time when Hans Richter, dedicatee and creator of the First Symphony by Edward Elgar, began rehearsals in London for the London premiere of that symphony (the creation of which took place a few days earlier in Manchester), he told the orchestra: "Gentlemen, let us now rehearse the greatest symphony of modern times, written by the greatest modern composer, and not only in this country." This was saying something ... Certainly, at the time the twentieth century was only eight years old and it is not known exactly what Richter meant by "modern times", but the tribute is not lacking in grandeur. Shortly after it's establishment, the symphony was exported around the world: New York, Vienna, Leipzig - Germany then being very sensitive to music by Elgar. It is perhaps very suiting that we return to Germany now for the First Symphony as performed by the Staatskapelle Berlin, recorded in September 2015 at the Philharmonie under the direction of Daniel Barenboim. ©SM/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.
