Mahler: Des Knaben Wunderhorn

Following two albums which horn player and conductor Radek Baborák, together with his ensemble Orquestrina, dedicated to the music of Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla, he now releases an entirely different project: a complete recording of Mahler’s famous Lieder collection “Youth’s Magic Horn”. Baborák invited three internationally renowned Czech vocalists to collaborate on the album: Kateřina Kněžíková, Markéta Cukrová and Adam Plachetka. The original orchestration has been adjusted to the possibilities of Baborák Ensemble and its variable line-up of seven to sixteen players. The diverse and lively new arrangements which have been made with respect to the brilliant qualities of the individual instrumentalists (members of the ensemble include oboe player Jana Brožková and harpist Kateřina Englichová), appear to have injected new energy and youthful spirit into Mahler’s beautiful music.
