Reinbert de Leeuw - Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde - The Times

The Dutch conductor de Leeuw gave the premiere of his arrangement for a large chamber group of Mahler’s profound meditation on death at last summer’s Saintes Festival. This recording reveals a resourceful and sensitive instrumentation, exquisitely delivered by Het Collectief, that allows Richardot and Saelens the widest dynamic, tonal and emotional range. De Leeuw died four weeks later.
