Kent Nagano Releases Symphonic Recording with Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg

June 21st, 2024|Categories: 2023 - 2024 Season, New Release|

This first symphonic recording featuring Kent Nagano releases Schubert, Webern, Mahlerand on FARAO classics with Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg, devoted to the highly charged period at the turning point between Romanticism and Modernism. The programme consists of two chamber works by Schubert, orchestrated by Mahler and Webern and presented in a new guise, as well as an original, early chamber work by Webern. “The Schubert-Mahler-Webern triad contains an important piece of music history which, in the way the works are interwoven with each other, we can experience here like under a magnifying glass. It is part of the history of Romanticism in its late phase, shim-mering in new colors on the threshold of modernity.” — Kent Nagano
