Sovereign Mahler from Matthias Goerne and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra

Beethoven/Mahler: RCO/Honeck

Concertgebouw, 12th February 2016

Expectations for this concert were bound to be high. Matthias Goerne, one of the foremost Lieder singers of our time, joined the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, an instDesKnabenWunderhorn.jpegitution with Mahler in its blood, in songs from Des Knaben Wunderhorn(The Boy’s Magic Horn). On the rostrum leading the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra was Manfred Honeck, completing the programme with Beethoven’s Symphony no. 7 in A major. Mr Honeck has recorded one of the most thrilling versions of this symphony with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. The anticipation was fully rewarded in the Mahler, less so in the Beethoven.
