Mahler - Symphony No. 4 - Herreweghe, Orchestre des Champs-Elysees







After a 30-year partnership with Harmonia Mundi, Philippe Herreweghe has founded his own label, PHI. Under Herreweghe's leadership, the Orchestre des Champs-Elysées has been striving, for almost 20 years, to attain an idiomaticPhilippe Herreweghe style and forgotten colors. This Fourth Symphony by Mahler, interpreted on period instruments, champions resolutely modern aesthetics far from standard interpretations. Beyond the sumptuous colors of the orchestra, beyond the meticulous work on the musical score, this recording confirms Herreweghe's intimacy with the world of the Viennese composers at the turn of the century. 




  1. Sounds promising...
    Very kind of you.

  2. I love versions that in the 4th movement use a boy voice, as this or that one under Bernstein with Helmut Wittek, but I find Andi better... A boy can represent perfectely that heaven's innocence and the music of engels, and when he sings so good... That's great!
    IN my blog you can find an interview with the soloist.
