Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Philharmonia Orchestra & Otto Klemperer – Mahler: Symphony No. 4 (Remastered) (2020) [Official Digital Download 24bit/44,1kHz]

Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Philharmonia Orchestra & Otto Klemperer – Mahler: Symphony No. 4 (Remastered) (2020)
FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | Time – 55:03 minutes | 1,12 GB | Genre: Classical

“The five songs that follow the performance of the Fourth Symphony (two from Des Knaben Wunderhorn and three from the Rückert-Lieder) date from the time of the Klemperer/Ludwig Das Lied von der Erde, and rank among the finest examples of Mahler singing ever recorded. Christa Ludwig’s “Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen”–the most beautiful song in the world?–is every bit as fine as Janet Baker’s more celebrated version on the same label, and Otto Klemperer’s unsentimental conducting style suits the music’s “innigkeit” (“inwardness”) better than Barbirolli’s more affectionate approach.

Otto Klemperer was very much a man of the theatre. “Here, opera and drama were truly united”, he said of his time at Berlin’s Kroll Theatre, a progressive and influential force in the heady years of the Weimar Republic. He was also a man with a sharp sense of humour: this performance of Mendelssohn’s incidental music to Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream both glows with enchantment and sparkles with wit.

The reissue of classical music masterpieces by ESOTERIC has attracted a lot of attention, both for its uncompromising commitment to recreating the original master sound, and for using hybrid Super Audio CD (SACD) technology to improve sound quality. This series marks the first hybrid SACD release of two selections from EMI classics that have been mainstays of the catalog since their initial release on LP, until the present digital age of CD. These new audio versions feature DSD mastering of the original recordings.
The criterion of re-mastering is to faithfully capture the quality of the original master tapes. ESOTERIC’s flag ship D/A converters, model D-01VU, Rubidium master clock generator model G-0Rb and ESOTERIC MEXCEL interconnect cables and power cords, were all used for this re-mastering session. This combination of highly advanced technology greatly contributed to capturing the high quality sound of the original master tapes.
