MAHLER’S MASTERFUL SONGS Gustav Mahler’s songs are performed often and cherished throughout the world. They are most frequently heard with orchestra, but the piano versions of the songs by Mahler himself bring to the listener an aural image different from the orchestra’s opulent sound. Here we are much closer to the music, with the smaller format allowing for greater musical intimacy in the communication of the texts. On Marianne Beate Kielland and Nils Anders Mortensen’s new album — their eighth on the LAWO Classics label — we are treated to three of Mahler’s most important song cycles: “Rückert-Lieder”, “Kindertotenlieder” and “Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen”. The first two cycles on the album feature texts by the German poet Friedrich Rückert, while those of the wayfarer cycle were penned by Mahler himself. The texts are existential and the music is welded closely to them. The album’s title, “Einsamkeit”, alludes to the very themes that often characterize the texts. And we perceive perhaps to a greater degree on this release not only the beauty, but also the tenderness and sadness in the music, since everything is stripped down to the familiar format of voice and piano. Norwegian mezzo-soprano MARIANNE BEATE KIELLAND has established herself as one of Europe’s leading singers. She performs regularly with today’s foremost orchestras and conductors in Europe, the Far East and North America, and with close to 50 album recordings she has distinguished herself in the international recording market. With his critically acclaimed album releases and his concert appearances as soloist with the principal Norwegian orchestras, pianist NILS ANDERS MORTENSEN is today regarded as one of Norway’s leading pianists. He is employed as state musician in Finnmark County and is active as well as a freelance artist.
