Reinbert de Leeuw (81) brilliant conductor, composer and arranger, made an exceptionally refined arrangement for 15 instrumentalists and 2 soloists of Gustav Mahler’s 'Das Lied von der Erde'. This arrangement had never been recorded but now it will be made with Het Collectief (B) and soloists Lucile Richardot (F) and Yves Saelens (B).
Beginning of January 2020 we had our recording sessions at the magnificent concert hall Muziekgebouw ’t IJ in Amsterdam. Now we are preparing the master take and we can already say that this recording will overwhelm the listener by its impetus and stillness, but likewise by the extremely refined joy of chamber music playing, which will lead to the pure magic in the last part, ‘Der Abschied’.
In September 2020 Alpha Classics – Outhere Music will launch this unique collector’s item!
