Magdalena and the label Pentatone are delighted to announce they have established new long-term collaboration. In addition to ongoing cooperation with Deutsche Grammophon, Magdalena likes to expand the scope of labels she is recording with. This new partnership will showcase the breadth of Magdalena´s repertoire over several albums, from Baroque opera to contemporary art song, from Rameau to Berio.
Magdalena spent time in the recording studio this past Summer and documented a selection of heart-wrenchingly beautiful songs from her homeland by Dvořák and Janáček, coupled with some of the repertoire’s most famous melodies, including Strauss’ eternal Morgen!, Chausson’s poetic Chanson perpétuelle and Brahms’ Two Songs, Op. 91 – some of them in new arrangements.
Joining her were her husband, Sir Simon Rattle, in his first-ever appearance as a pianist on record, and six of their closest colleagues: Wolfram Brandl and Rahel Rilling on violin, Yulia Deyneka on viola, Dávid Adorján on cello, Andrew Marriner on clarinet and Kaspar Zehnder on flute.
