HD-Vinyls (Mono)24/96 (EMI) Gustav Mahler – Kindertotenlieder (Ferrier)

front-small-boxsetAll thanks for these gems go to Tovarnik
Even before her tragic death at 41 (in 1953), Kathleen Ferrier became a legend for her incomparable voice, her simplicity and sincerity of expression, and her indomitable courage. This compilation of recordings originally made in the 1940s includes two beautifully sung Händel arias, two sacred songs by Maurice Greene, and delightful duets by Purcell and Mendelssohn (sung in English with another beloved English singer, Isobel Baillie), greatly enhanced by the inimitable pianist Gerald Moore. But the core of this recording is the Mahler cycle. Here, Ferrier’s voice takes on a new warmth and intensity; her deeply inward, direct expressiveness gives the bereaved parent’s grief and anguish a devastating impact. Her reading of the last song could be a bit more spooky, but the end is heartbreaking in its submissive resignation. The Vienna Philharmonic and Bruno Walter are in their native element. –Edith Eisler
