      Gustav Mahler
      Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection”

      Christiane Oelze, soprano · Michaela Schuster, mezzosoprano
      Kartäuserkantorei Köln · Bach-Verein Köln
      Madrigalchor der Hochschule für Musik Köln

      Gürzenich-Orchester Köln · Markus Stenz, Dirigent

      After the purely instrumental Fifth Symphony and the Fourth with soprano solo in the final movement, the Cologne Mahler cycle now moves to a work with extensive vocal music. In addition to a large orchestra, soprano and mezzo-soprano solos, the Second Symphony requires a large mixed choir. For this recording, no fewer than five renowned ensembles from Cologne and Bonn joined forces. The recording was made under studio conditions in the outstanding acoustics of the Cologne Philharmonie.
      Right from the start, the Mahler cycle of the Gürzenich-Orchester Köln under the direction of Markus Stenz attracted great attention. Within the extensive range of Mahler cycles, it has established itself as a well calculated complete recording that unabashedly expresses the extremes of the composer‘s inner world while not sinking to insubstantial sensationalism. The sound technology used here captures the orchestral sound with complete naturalness, reflecting the most cutting-edge technological standards.
