Label changes man for woman in response to Slippedisc outcrymain
Last summer, the Dutch label Pentatone issued a set of Mahler songs for mezzo and orchestra with a conductor’s face on the front.
Our readers did not think much of that.
So Pentatone have now reissued the recording with mezzo-soprano Alice Coote on the cover.
Which is no less than she deserves. It’s a fabulous recording.
