Lahav Shani and the Viennese School
conductor Lahav Shani | baritone Matthias Goerne
Mahler Songs from Des Knaben Wunderhorn | Schubert Symphony No. 8 ‘Unfinished’ | Berg Three Pieces for Orchestra
‘In Mahler’s songs Matthias Goerne takes your breath away’, wrote NRC. ‘It would have been worth a massive detour just to hear the way that Goerne sung the phrase “so leise wecken kann” in “Wo die schönen Trompeten blasen”.’ This Viennese programme features not only Mahler but also Schubert’s Unfinished and – a personal favourite of Lahav Shani – Berg’s intensely expressive Pieces for Orchestra.
