After a 30 year long partnership with Harmonia Mundi, Philippe Herreweghe has founded his own label, PHI, coproduced with Outhere. For his first CD, he proposes Mahler's Fourth Symphony.
Under the leadership of Philippe Herreweghe, l'Orchestre des Champs-Élysées has been striving, for almost twenty years, to attain an idiomatic style and forgotten colors. This Fourth Symphony by Mahler, interpreted on period instruments, champions resolutely modern aesthetics, far from standard interpretations.
Beyond the sumptuous colors of l'Orchestre des Champs-Élysées, beyond the meticulous work on the musical score, this recording confirms Herreweghe's intimacy with the world of the Viennese composers of the turn of the century
