WAGNER – Die Meistersinger Prelude

MAHLER – Symphony No. 7

Wagner’s grand prelude to his lighted-hearted opera Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg whose subject of mastersingers, apprentices and their singing contests makes a perfect introduction to Mahler’s amorous, optimistic and sunnily triumphant Seventh Symphony. Purely symphonic in orchestration, the Seventh Symphony revels in special orchestral tone colours and uses unusual instruments such as tenor horn, guitar and mandolin to make its unique effects. Russian conductor Stanislav Kochanovsky shows his versatility in these two great German masterpieces.
