More details

In 1986, Hartmut Haenchen became music director of the De Nederlandse Opera (DNO) in Amsterdam and chief conductor of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra (NPO). He has collaborated with La Scala, Milan, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and the Opéra National de Paris, and performed with orchestras throughout the world including the Berlin Philharmonic and Concertgebouw. These recordings of Mahler’s Symphony No.1 and the massive Symphony No.8 are being released on ICA’s ‘Live’ artist series to commemorate Haenchen’s seventieth birthday. This digital recording captures the stupendous sound of both symphonies and, in particular, the huge forces employed and wide dynamic range that Mahler demands in Symphony No.8. Haenchen’s recent live Mahler Symphony No.6 can be seen on DVD (ICAD 5018): the disc won a prestigious Diapason d’or award.

    “These are two really impressive performances, captured in spacious and clear broadcast sound. Haenchen's Mahler deserves to be far better known than it is and I'd urge any enterprising collector to hear this set”
