Editors’ Notes Mahler’s soaring, worldly orchestral song-cycle receives a thrilling reading from the Wiener Philharmoniker and Jonathan Nott in this unorthodox interpretation that sees German operatic tenor Jonas Kaufmann pulling double duty and singing both roles. The gloomy “Der Abschied” gets a lucid reading from the historic orchestra.
