Let's stay honest: many singers may be called, but few are chosen to get their deserved chance to sing Mahler's orchestrated lieder cycles, his "Lied von der Erde”
or the vocal movements from symphony no. 2 - 4 with authentic orchestral accompaniment, let alone getting this possibility at any time or place – for rehearsing purposes, but why not for concerts
or recordings? – anyway: Here (and to my knowledge ONLY here) you get this possibility !
From the summer of 2016 to January of the year 2018, I have spent my time creating purely instrumental playbacks using the unmatched authentic and varied sampled instruments of Vienna Symphonic Library® for devoting to anything Gustav Mahler ever composed for solo voice and orchestra.
What exactly arose by taking care of any orchestral score detail and agogic, tonal or dynamic nuance, you can imagine best, if you take a bit of leisure for your
ramble through the extended audio samples which are waiting to be peered by you in/as numerous Youtube videos: A mouse click on any blue line in the above list should lead you to the respective
(By the way - do not allow some possibly occurring slight crackling noise to spoil your enjoyment: The complete tracks, which you will be able to download for a fair price (mostly 0,50 € or 0,60 $ per minute) as wav files, will always be of impeccable sound quality ! The above links should lead you directly to the related title (long excerpt) within one of my largest Youtube videos presenting the Mahler project.
Of course the whole repertoire is destined to be available in full length and in various keys/registers by request. If wished each title is available in any preferred tonality. For certain titles (e.g. "Der Abschied") it will be useful to command a version with metronome clicks too. For best quality I provide the ordered tracks as wav files. When paid you get a mail containung a link which enables you to download them. Please note that I'll have to ask you to accept a license agreement saying:
You're allowed to use any of the purchased tracks for public performances and/or recordings even commercially, provided that my participation is adequately acknowledged and each track is unseparable from the complete and well audible vocal part. However, it is strictly forbidden to pass any of the files to third parties, as long as they are instrumental and not yet combined with their complete vocal parts. In so far you do not purchase objects changing hands, but just untransferable personal licenses.
I'm free to offer individual conditions even including gratis tracks.
