Moravian Philharmonic said goodbye to the season with Mahler

Moravian Philharmonic Olomouc - April 16, 2015

Harmonieonline, 11. 5. 2015, Marta Kerlinová

The evening began Mahler's song cycle Kindertotenlieder , therefore  songs about dead children . Music to songs full of deep pain and anguish on texts by the German poet Friedrich Rückert Mahler wrote in the years 1901-1904, paradoxically in their happiest time of life. As if this were some kind of ominous harbinger of later death of Mahler's four daughters. Interpretation for this evening took the soloist of the Moravian Theatre in Olomouc, Barbora Polášková . Its distinctive deep velvety voice timbre perfectly corresponded with the character of the music and lyrics supported also by an exceptional flair for capturing the mood and emotional state of mind of the individual songs. Thanks to these undeniable interpretive abilities and the power of his personality and the skill to draw the audience into applause uninterrupted stream of music with the singer in the end got a deserved thunderous applause.
