London Symphony Orchestra, Choir of Eltham College, Choral Arts Society of Washington, Tiffin Boys Choir & London Symphony Chorus, Valery Gergiev

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.

Each of Mahler’s symphonies could be considered a masterpiece, employing large orchestras, matching his view of the symphony as an all-encompassing form of musical expression. Mahler drew inspiration widely, but certain themes recur frequently – wisdom, love, grief, mortality and death.

Throughout the Autumn Valery Gergiev will conduct the complete Brahms and Szymanowski cycles with the LSO in London, Edinburgh, Paris and Luxembourg. They also tour together to the USA and Germany.

Gergiev’s recent recordings on LSO Live include an acclaimed recording of Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances. Forthcoming LSO Live releases include Tchaikovsky’s Symphonies Nos 1-3 in October 2012.

Frederica von Stade (mezzo) & Martin Katz (piano)

Another favourite of the Salzburg public was the mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade, who besides her Cherubino in Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro also enjoyed repeated successes in Salzburg with her song recitals. In 1986, accompanied by Martin Katz, she offered a programme that knew no boundaries – ranging from the florid poesy of settings by Fauré and Strauss to Mahler’s Songs of a Wayfarer, the moderate American Modernism of Charles Ives, Copland and Pasatieri, then to Canteloube’s French folk song adaptations. Schoenberg’s early cabaret songs served to round off the evening in ebullient fashion.

“the mezzo-soprano on excellent form in a fascinating programme … Katz is a consistently birlliant accompanist and the programme is as absorbing as it is enterprising. Nobody who admires this singer should hesitate for a moment.” International Record Review, December 2012

Mahler: Symphony No. 6 in A minor 'Tragic'

Mahler: Symphony No. 6 in A minor 'Tragic'


Mahler’s 6th Symphony was premiered in Vienna in 1906 by the composer himself (who only conducted it twice again), and the nickname ‘The Tragic Symphony’ was only ever used at this time - it never made it into any version of the score. Simone Young has proved herself a worthy exponent of his music and the second volume with the Hamburg Philharmonic will surely attract critical acclaim for her and her forces.

“The performance gripped - and held - my attention from the outset...Ms. Young hands the enormous span of this movement very well indeed. Her tempi are well judged and she inspires the orchestra to play with huge commitment - and precision...this Simone Young recording can stand comparison with most. It’s a distinguished issue.” MusicWeb International, February 2013

New Studio Recording


“This first movement, while fresh and genial, is a little short on mystery...Luisi, like several recent exponents, launches the slow movement with massed double basses rather than that vulnerable-sounding solo instrument of old...Much more convincing is his super-articulate launch of the finale, the whole movement splendidly vivid” Gramophone Magazine, April 2013

“There’s refreshingly little of the routine here – the strangeness, the quirkiness of Mahler’s vision are gently highlighted, the whole aided by gorgeously idiomatic orchestral playing full of refreshingly old-world sonorities...There are flashier, noisier, more flamboyant Mahler 1s around. But this one is excellent, and won’t give you tinnitus.” The Arts Desk, 5th January 2013

Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela & Los Angeles Philharmonic, Gustavo Dudamel

This could well be the most ambitious recording of any Mahler symphony ever and a once-in-a-generation classical event and an unforgettable night for the city of Caracas.

This truly unique account of Mahler’s most extraordinary symphony is part of Gustavo Dudamel's planned Mahler cycle, this time featuring BOTH orchestras with which he is most closely associated - the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, who have both played acclaimed Mahler concerts with Maestro Dudamel in the US and in Venezuela. The performance also features an immense vocal force including a massed choir of young Venezuelan voices and a line-up of international soloists.

The performance was seen in hundreds of theaters in the United States and Canada, as well as those in Brazil, Colombia and Argentina. In Venezuela, it aired on the state television channel, Tves, to mass audiences.

This special DVD and Blu-Ray will be released to coincide with the Opening Concert of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra season in September 2012.

Extra Material: 17 minutes documentary on the DVD and Blu-Ray which gives a unique insight into this world-beating Mahler recording.

Picture Format: 16:9 · Filmed in High Definition

Subtitles: Latin, German, English, French, Spanish, Chinese

“This Symphony of much more than a thousand...maximises the advantages of group spirit and minimises the problems of monstrosity. The beginning, middle and end of Mahler's first movement hymn to the creator spirit blaze with unsurpassable, open-toned fervour...I guess it's the fervent-toned Simon Bolivar strings who bring true intensity to the tremolos and heart to the soarings.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2013 ****

“an excellent rendition of Mahler’s Eighth Symphony...featuring a fine partnership of orchestras and a variable lineup of soloists...Of particular note is the huge choir, which included some 1,200 children from Venezuela’s remarkable system of youth choruses.” New York Times, 23rd November 2012

“It's difficult to overstate the magnitude here...Dudamel's charisma, supremely necessary in unifying his onstage forces, also proves photogenic...Rarely has a chorus come off so perfectly balanced, even in the softest sections...Dudamel's concept of Mahler has deepened noticeably since his initial Fifth with the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2013
