Some 150 years ago what is sometimes called 'The Great Migration' of Finns to the United States began. Many of the Finns settled in the Mid-West, and especially in the so-called 'Finn Hook', consisting of parts of Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin. To celebrate this, the Minnesota Orchestra under its Finnish music director Osmo Vänskä commissioned the composer Olli Kortekangas to compose a work on the theme of migration, of a scale and nature suitable for performance alongside Jean Sibelius's great Kullervo. Discovering the work of the Minnesota-based poet Sheila Packa, herself of Finnish descent, Kortekangas composed Migrations for mezzo-soprano, male voice choir and orchestra, the same forces as in Kullervo, with the exception of the baritone soloist in that work. An all-star Finnish cast - soloists Lilli Paasikivi and Tommi Hakala and the celebrated YL Male Voice Choir - joined the Minnesota Orchestra and Osmo Vänskä for three concerts in February 2016, and captured by a recording team from BIS the memorable performances can now be enjoyed by a wider audience. Sibelius began working on Kullervo during his student days in Vienna in 1891, finding his inspiration in the Kalevala, Finland's national epic. In a letter home to Finland he wrote about 'a new symphony, totally in the Finnish spirit' and the work is often regarded as the first successful example of a Finnish national musical language. In spite of what Sibelius wrote in his letter, the five-movement work is usually regarded as a symphonic poem, but with a duration of c. 80 minutes Kullervo certainly has the scale of a large symphony, and as such the present performance forms a worthy appendix to the highly acclaimed Sibelius cycle which the orchestra and Vänskä brought to a close with the recent release of Symphonies No. 3, 6 and 7. As a fitting close to this two-disc set, and to the concerts in Minneapolis' Orchestra Hall, the orchestra performs Sibelius's Finlandia, with the YL Male Voice Choir joining in in the famous hymn section

Das Lied von der Erde by Gustav Mahler( )

1 edition published in 2011 in German and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So einzigartig wie die formale Gestaltung des Werks, so extrem sind die Anforderungen an seine Interpreten: Es bedarf zweier gestandener Liedsänger, die im Zusammenwirken mit dem riesigen Orchesterapparat ebenso als Solisten hervortreten, wie sie sich als konzertierende Stimmen in das symphonische Gefüge mit einzuordnen vermögen. Es bedarf eines ausgezeichneten, bestens aufeinander abgestimmten Klangkörpers, und natürlich einer Dirigentenpersönlichkeit, die für Zusammenhalt sorgt und der Großform Geist und Beseeltheit verleiht. Alle diese Parameter fügten sich bei Konzerten zusammen, die am 25. und 26. Januar 2018 im Herkulessaal der Münchener Residenz aufgezeichnet wurden und nun bereits als CD bei BR Klassik veröffentlicht werden
The dream of Gerontius ; Cello concerto by Edward Elgar( )

Symphony no. 8 by Gustav Mahler( )

8 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mahlers 8. Sinfonie ist ein wahrhaft episches Werk, das einen enormen Chor, ein riesiges Orchester, nicht weniger als 8 Solisten und zusätzliche Blechbläser hinter dem Podium verlangt. Nicht von ungefähr, aber ohne Mahlers Zustimmung, wurde sie daher als "Sinfonie der Tausend" bezeichnet. Die Uraufführung 1910 in München war ein triumphaler Erfolg, gleichzeitig war es das letzte Dirigat Mahlers in Europa, 8 Monate später starb er. Die 8. Sinfonie ist in 2 deutlich voneinander abgesetzte Sätze geteilt und spannt den Bogen vom Pfingsthymnus Veni creator spiritus bis zur Schlussszene aus dem 2. Teil von Goethes Faust. - Die Londoner St. Paul's Cathedral bildete im letzten Jahr den spektakulären Rahmen für eine eindrucksvolle Aufführung der Sinfonie der Tausend mit Valery Gergiev und dem London Symphony Orchestra. Sie wird auf dieser preiswerten CD in SACD-Qualität nacherlebbar. Breite Empfehlung
