Mahler Symphony No. 4 in G Major, Piano Quartet in A Minor (2018)


Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg

Gustavo Gimeno

Mahler – Symphony No. 4 with conductor Gustavo Gimeno and Orchestra Philharmonique Luxembourg. With the fourth movement folksong 'Das himmlische Leben' performed by Swedish soprano Miah Persson. Also included on the release is Mahler’s Piano Quartet in A Minor, 'Nicht zu Schnell'.

Mahler’s Fourth Symphony is a stunning combination of Modernist classical combined with the reminiscence of Romanticism. It is a joyous, impressive and moving display of orchestral grandeur, paired with Mahler’s only surviving chamber music composition, arranged by Colin Matthew’s, the fascinating Piano Quartet in A Minor.

This is the fourth recording in the critically acclaimed multi-album artistic journey from Gustavo Gimeno and Orchestra Philharmonique Luxembourg with PENTATONE, including Bruckner – Symphony No. 1 & 4 Orchestral Pieces (Disc of the Day, Artamag), Shostakovich – Symphony No. 1 & other short works & Ravel – Daphnis et Chloé, receiving rave reviews from the likes of Stretto, Opus Klassiek, BBC Music Magazine and Gramophone.

Gustavo Gimeno

Born in Valencia, Gustavo Gimeno began his international conducting career in 2012, when at that time he was a member of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, as an assistant to Mariss Jansons. Significant experience was also harnessed in assisting Bernard Haitink and Claudio Abbado, with whom he forged an intense and influential mentorship. Following his acclaimed conducting debut with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in 2014, Gustavo Gimeno took up the post of Music Director of the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg with the 2015-16 season. In his second season, he continues this partnership with a focus on the great orchestral literature including Mahler Symphony No. 4, Beethoven Symphony No. 7, Ravel’s “Daphnis and Chloé”, Stravinsky’s “Sacre” and new commissions of Mark-Anthony Turnage and Francisco Coll. Aside from his Music Director commitments in Luxembourg, Gustavo Gimeno has collaborated with a select list of orchestras including Munich Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre National de France, Rotterdam Philharmonic, and the Philharmonia Zurich. In 2015, Gimeno led the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra on tour to Asia. In 2016-17 season, Gimeno will make his debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C. and the Orchestra of the Academy of Santa Cecilia. He will also appear in Vienna twice that season, with the OPL at the Wiener Konzerthaus and with Vienna Symphony at the Musikverein. “His musical rhetorics are refined, his grip on the structure of the compositions is accurate and convincing” observed Joep Stapel in the NRC Handelsblad, “Gimeno knew how to keep the tension and made the musicians … excel.”
