Das Lied is considered the most personal of Mahler’s works. It represents a synthesis of the two great pillars in Mahler’s oeuvre, the symphony and the song. On the face of it, it is cycle of six orchestral songs. But at the same time, it features three protagonists: not just the two solo voices, but the orchestra as well, and its formal structure is symphonic in nature.
The two soloists on this recording are the best known for this work. They sing it all over the world with top orchestras to fabulous reviews and PentaTone is delighted to welcome them to their label. The Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra has a splendid reputation for its Mahler performances mainly under previous Music Director Harmut Haenchen.

 "...This is a peformance for the ages. make room for it next to whatever other Das Lieds you already own." 

Lynn René Bayley - Fanfare -  September/October 2013

"... It is, beyond doubt, the best-recorded Das Lied that I’ve ever heard. The level of detail and clarity of sound on the SACD (I listened to it on an ordinary CD player) are better than I have heard in some concert halls. If you want this in great sound and one that you will be able to listen to over and over, this should do the job for you."

Stephen D Chakwin Jr - American Record Guide - September/October 2013

"...This is a major achievement for both soloists then, thrillingly supported by  Marc Albrecht’s Dutch players alert to all the nuances of imagery woven into Mahler’s miraculous scoring..."
