Historical performance pioneer, Trevor Pinnock, conducts the Royal Academy of Music Soloists Ensemble in Erwin Stein’s revealing chamber arrangement of Mahler’s most frequently performed symphony.
‘Under Pinnock, the Royal Academy of Music’s Chamber Ensemble bring to the surface the lithe counterpoint that usually lumbers under thicker string textures, while soprano Sonia Grane succeeds admirably in illuminating the piece’s inner folksong…Schoenberg’s [Debussy arrangement] rarely sounds so sensuous.’ Gramophone
‘Trevor Pinnock communicated energy, enthusiasm and natural phrasing to the RAM students. He brought a beauty to the Mahler.’ BachTrack.com
Benno Sachs’ re-orchestration of ‘Prelude a l’apres-midi d’un faune’ is also included. The stripped-back orchestration of both pieces offer the listener a fresh perspective on these popular works.
