Splendid premiere and a new recording
“I cannot understand it – it passes over me like a tidal wave – and that matters not a lot either, because it goes on forever, even if it is never performed again – that final chord is printed on the atmosphere.” This was written by Benjamin Britten about Mahler’s late work Das Lied von der Erde. Now, on March 29th 2017, a new recording of this work was released on the label Klarthe.
Jussi Myllys, who is currently performing at the Finnish National Opera Helsinki as Lensky in Eugene Onegin (Performances on April 18th and May 3rd +5th), sings the tenor part in the version for chamber orchestra with the Orchestre Victor-Hugo under the baton of Jean Francois Verdier.
