Mahler Symphonies Nos 1-9

Mahler Symphonies Nos 1-9



****½ 'The LSO by the way has never sounded better – a fantastic orchestra!' Audiophile Audition (US)

Valery Gergiev’s performances and recordings of Mahler’s
symphonies with the LSO have garnered international acclaim.
They have performed the works in Europe, North America and the Far East and their recordings have received numerous awards. The symphonies were originally released between 2008 and 2011 and will now be made available together for the first time as a beautifully packaged 10 SACD box set.

Gustav Mahler redefined the dimensions, structure, and possibilities for expression that the symphony offered. Neglected for decades after his untimely death, his symphonies are now universally regarded as among the greatest works of music. The themes of faith, love, tragedy and death run throughout the cycle of nine completed scores, effectively chronicling the career of one of the greatest composers on an epic scale.
