Kent Nagano’s latest CD release with the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra on FARAO Classics is the general music director’s first symphonic release with “his” orchestra and presents two chamber music works by Schubert, orchestrated by Mahler and Webern and presented in a new guise, as well as an early chamber music work by Webern. The 2021 live performance was recorded at the Elbphilharmonie and Laeiszhalle.

Further information here.

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
