Description

Symphony No. 2 Resurrection on CD

• In 1888 Gustav Mahler composed a tone-poem called

Totenfeier (Funeral Rites). This became the foundation

for and the first movement of what would later be his

Symphony #2.

• As the complexity of this work grew, (it wasn't finished until

sometime in 1894), it would eventually be known as the

"Resurrection" Symphony, after the "moment of clarity" and

inspiration he experienced at the funeral of Hans von Bulow,

his friend and conducting mentor.

• This massive musical composition containing five

movements uses a full chorus, soprano and alto soloists,

and a featured alto solo voice essential to the work's fourth

movement.

• Internationally renowned conductor Gerard Schwartz leads

the Royal Philharmonic in this live performance of Mahler's

"Resurrection" that features soprano Ailish Tynan and

mezzo-soprano Catherine Wyn-Rogers.

• "Mezzo-soprano Catherine Wyn-Rogers was sublime in the

short fourth movement... Made a splendid contribution to

the shattering, blistering finale." Glyn Mon Hughes, Liverpool

Daily Post and Classical Source

• AilishTynan, soprano, winner of the 2003 BBC CardoffSinger

of the World Competition, has sung at the Royal Opera

House, Scottish Opera, Covent Garden, Royal Swedish Opera,

Houston Grand Opera, and all over Europe.
