After their earlier DSD Stereo and DSD Multichannel releases of Mahler Symphonies Nos. 1-7 and 9, conductor Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra return to NativeDSD Music with their new release of Mahler: ‘Das Lied von der Erde’.
“The long, endlessly stretched crescendo on the single note “e” (filled with so much desire) leads to the final part of Abschied, which I can only describe with the word ‘cosmic’. The voice is surrounded by floating meteors, objects, particles, or stars, which move in various directions and speeds. We have left the atmosphere and look back on the beautiful green and blue planet. ‘Die liebe Erde’, the lovable Earth that will stay and flourish in the spring (while we have less than 100 years to enjoy it), is the subject of Mahler’s adoration, the friend, to whom it is so painful to say farewell. This adoration of nature brings Mahler closer to Tao and Spinoza than to various religions he flirted with earlier. While saying farewell to the world, he found his true love and his true friend – planet Earth.”
