Gustav Mahler

Symphony no. 9
Concerto Budapest, András Keller
TACET Real Surround Sound & stereo

EAN/barcode: 4009850025443

This is not the ninth 5th, but still the fifth 9th symphony by András Keller and his Concerto Budapest on TACET! After Bruckner, Dvořák, Shostakovich and Schubert (it now counts as the 8th), now Mahler. An impressive testament to the range of this unusual orchestra and its unique conductor. Certainly there are countless other recordings, also very good, of these last finished symphonies of great composers. However, I find that Keller's interpretations, with his unconditional will to express in detail, can compete with any, even the best known. What has not been available before are recordings of them in TACET Real Surround Sound, which brings to light previously hidden beauties and places the listener in the middle of the music. This allows you to hear these works in a completely new way.

Der Ungar András Keller nähert sich seinem Teil-Landsmann Mahler auf einer sehr emotionalen, leidenschaftlichen Ebene. Insbesondere die beiden trauervollen Eck-Sätze von dessen letzter vollendeter Sinfonie lassen Mahler Todesahnungen mitfühlen. more... (02/13/2023):

András Keller and his Concerto Budapest undertook a most successful UK tour in 2022, one that garnered a considerable number of very enthusiastic press reviews, so this latest release on the Tacet label by these artists of a symphony as challenging as Mahler’s Ninth is worthy of attention, even in a catalogue bursting with rival versions of this work on CD, SACD and Blu-ray discs.

Founded in 1907 as the Hungarian Symphony Orchestra, Concerto Budapest adopted its present name a century later. more...
