Janet Baker - Mahler, Brahms (CD, Album)

05.11.2019 Kam 8 Comments

Assuming that the sound quality of the two discs was roughly equivalent, Regis have done marvels in revealing that the rather gritty Saga pressings were actually hiding extremely good original recordings. And what quality! With her voice in its pristine glory, rich, even and refulgent, Baker had already evolved that interpretative style, in which a noble simplicity and a basically non-interventionist stance was married to an instinct for the colouring of the words and an ability to involve the listener by an inner expressive intensity free of tricks or rhetoric, which was to stay with her, with a few further refinements, throughout her career.

Her reading of the Schumann cycle is one of radiance but also depth, the steady unfolding of heartfelt love. There is, however, an aspect which puzzles me. I was critical of Kathleen Ferrier for having opted to transpose the songs down only a semitone the normal edition for low voice is down a tone , thus being obliged by the tessitura to sing strongly and publicly where Schumann surely expected something more intimate.

Janet Baker is down a tone, and the relaxed quality of the voice shows this to be right. There are several reasons why it would have been better not to do this: Schumann has planned the songs with a key sequence in mind; no. Franz Schubert: Lieder. An Anthology of English Song. Saga Records. BBC Music Magazine. Mahler: Symphonie No. Mahler: Symphony No. Great Opera Divas: Janet Baker. Great Opera Divas.

Handel: Julius Caesar. Donizetti: Mary Stuart. The Legendary Dame Janet Baker. Handel: Rodelinda. Opera D'Oro. Purcell: Dido and Aeneas. Massenet: Werther. Mendelssohn, Schumann, Liszt: Lieder.

Angel Records. BBC Legends. Schubert: Lieder. Baker Sings Gluck, Lully, Marcello, etc. A must buy! I never thought of a woman singing this repertoire so successfully. I have always admired Baker's voice and interpretations; but was pleasantly surprised with the neuanced interpretation she brought to these Lieder.

    "I have treasured Janet Baker's performance of the Rückert-lieder for many years (coupled with Elgar's Sea Pictures on vinyl) but have up to now resisted buying her other Mahler song-cycles, believing those to be suitable only for a male singer, and have similarly treasured Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's interpretations of them.

    In this disc joining performances of 24 songs from three BBC recitals -- 12 songs from one in , 11 from , and one from -- Baker has selected a broad range of Brahms work in the genre and invested each in her own sensitive artistry. Beyond her distinctively warm-toned voice and heartfelt delivery, it is Baker 's ability to balance the lyric and the dramatic that makes her Brahms 9/
