Rihm/Reinecke/Schubert – COLOGNE PHILHARMONIE, GERMANY

5&6 September 2014
WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, Xavier De Maistre

“A standard interpretation would not reveal the sense of this particular passage…to the listener – as its signals would remain buried in the depth of the score. Not so with a conductor of Jukka-Pekka Saraste’s stature… His interpretation of Schubert’s late work stems from Mahler – he unearths what is agitated and disturbing, and makes a compositional logic tangible which, while not that of Beethoven, does not miss out on the lyricism and the flow of the melodies.”
