Tennstedt discusses his interpretation of Mahler, notably Mahler's Symphony No.6, with Michael Oliver

5:44
 Michael Oliver Soloist


These rare live broadcast recording make it’s first appearance on CD. The 1986 performance of Mahler’s Symphony No.3 from London’s Royal Festival Hall differs from the studio recording made in the late 70’s. As Michael McManus states in his booklet notes, ’Fine though the studio recording from 1979 was and is, this live performance has an intensity and integrity that few, if any, recordings of this work can match’ and ’Tennstedt in concert was a very different creature from Tennstedt in the studio. Mahler in particular was a life-and-death experience in the concert hall’. The sound captured by the BBC engineers is state of the art and easily captures Mahler’s huge dynamic range. As a bonus, there is a short interview from 1987 in which Tennstedt discusses Mahler interpretation.
 
“It’s not a bad sound at all from this BBC broadcast and as soon as the funeral march begins there we’re in territory Tennstedt did so well, doom-laden and dark, the baleful glean of the trumpets - phrases lingered over as he rings out every tragic moment. And don’t think that he’s over-milking it here, when I had these new Mahler 3’s lined up I reached for Zinman and Chially for comparison. Tennstedt is brisker than both of them in this first movement... in Waltraud Meier he has an intense communicator... ”
 
Andrew McGregor - BBC Radio 3, CD Review - September 2011

“ This is an overwhelming experience. Tennstedt’s studio recordings of Mahler are impressive, but his concerts with the LPO at the Festival Hall were something different — among the greatest performances I have ever heard. This Mahler 3, given on October 5, 1986, is on fire from the first note. The Tennstedt strengths (huge dynamic range, maximum vividness of instrumental colour) strike you like a blow: the whispered pianissimo after the opening salvo, the fierceness of the muted trumpet arpeggio, the attack of the viola tremolo. He takes the march faster than many fine Mahler conductors, but it is irresistible. The middle movements are beautifully done and the finale is almost unbearably intense.”
