Gustav Mahler by Bruno Walter ( Book )
115 editions published between 1936 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 2,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Conductor, composer, and writer Bruno Walter (1876–1962) worked closely with Gustav Mahler as the composer's assistant and protégé. His revealing recollections of Mahler were written in 1936, marking the twenty-fifth anniversary of the composer's death. Walter first encountered Mahler more than 40 years earlier, when he served as the composer's assistant conductor in Hamburg. He worked with Mahler again at the Vienna Opera, and after the composer's death conducted the debut of the Ninth Symphony and Das Lied von der Erde. A staunch supporter of Mahler's genius and defender of his dour personality, Bruno cites the pressures faced by a gifted artist striving for perfection. This edition of his tribute to his friend and mentor features supplemental materials that include a biographical sketch of Mahler as man and artist by Ernst Křenek, the composer's son-in-law and musical heir, and a new Introduction by Erik Ryding, author of Bruno Walter: A World Elsewhere

"Eine große Ära kündigt sich an", so titelte im November 2009 die Presse das interpretatorische und spieltechnische Niveau, das Chefdirigent Jukka-Pekka Saraste und das WDR Sinfonieorchester bei Mahlers 9. Sinfonie in der Kölner Philharmonie an den Tag legten. "Saraste betont die eher schmerzlichen Aspekte, seine gemessene, Extreme meidende Deutung meidet auch alles grell Überzeichnende im dritten Satz. Alles fließt zum Schlusssatz hin, der hier statt lauter Wehklage oder versöhnlichem Trostgesang eher nordische Melancholie verströmt" (Audio 02 / 11). Bestenliste "Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik" 1/2011. "Instinct and intellect combine perfectly in Jukka-Pekka Saraste's perceptive reading. Mahler is all about weighing and balancing the extremes - heart and intellect, tempo and dynamics, tension and release - and Saraste's judgement in such matters is sharp and instinctive. Saraste's acute sense of the music's flux throughout this first movement makes for a series of frenzied climaxes. Saraste creates great atmosphere in these "lost" moments, time and pulse suspended like an out-of-body experience. Impressive horn playing makes the open-to-stopped colour particularly unsettling and the balmy transition into the coda deeply reassuring. The inner movements kick in with a suitably lumpen Ländler, deliciously wonky horn trills suggesting the dodgy footwork of the uncouth putting on airs. The Rondo-Burleske is exhilarating, too - biting and quick of reflex - but shows its teeth in the cruel E flat clarinet parody of the poignant middle section, foreshadowing as it does the great finale. And it is here that Saraste and his excellent WDR Symphony Orchestra convey an almost startling defiance, with violins digging deep to convey a truly Bernsteinian full-throatedness" (Gramophone, 03 / 2011)
