Warsaw Boys Choir, Warsaw Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra, Antoni Wit

With its enormous vocal, choral and orchestral forces, Mahler’s Eighth Symphony, later to be dubbed 24-bit, 96 kHz Stereo and Surround recordings. ‘Symphony of a Thousand’, is one of the largest and longest symphonies in the active repertoire. Part One, inspired by the Whitsuntide Vesper hymn Veni creator spiritus, is an invocation to the Creator Spirit. Part Two, a setting of the closing scene from Goethe’s Faust, depicts Faust’s redemption through wisdom and love. “Try to imagine the whole universe beginning to ring and resound”, was how Mahler himself described the impact of the closing pages of the Symphony.

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

Live From The Palais Des Beaux-Arts Brussels, 6 September 2009


La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra, Hartmut Haenchen

This exceptional performance is part of Haenchen’s Mahler Cycle with the La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra. Haenchen is particularly renowned and respected for his interpretations of Mahler and Wagner and has had a significant presence in many of the world’s leading opera houses including Netherlands Opera, Opéra National de Paris, Munich, Vienna and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

His high intellect and musical integrity can be experienced through the DVD note, which is an extract from a series of fictitious letters written by Haenchen from Mahler’s perspective – these are based on authentic documents and form a series of fourteen books.

He has made more than 120 recordings with his different orchestras (for Berlin Classics, Capriccio, Naxos, Pentatone, Philips, Sony Classical and Vanguard), and is the author of many books on music, including important studies of Wagner and Mahler.

This expressive and dramatic performance is captured live on film in LPCM Stereo and DTS 5.1 surround sound.

It is particularly attractive due to the outstanding group of soloists, which includes Johan Botha, Jane Henschel and Kwangchoul Young. Bertrand de Billy also proves his ability to ring out the finest, subtlest music-making from even the largest orchestral and choral bodies.

Technical reconstruction by Maggie Payne

“The playing has a lacerating intensity...in rhythmic incisiveness and clarity of texture, in fluidity of tempo, in naked emotional power, he is an ideal Mahler conductor.” Sunday Times

Camilla Tilling (soprano)

Symphony No. 5


Live recording of Symphonies 4&5 from the 26th BBC Prom at Royal Albert Hall, London, 5th August 2010.

Under the baton of renowned conductor Valery Gergiev, the orchestra “gave exemplary performances”, as The Independent put it. Only performing on rare occasions, the World Orchestra for Peace is an ensemble of select players plucked from the world’s best orchestras.

Includes a fascinating 23 minutes Documentary about the orchestra founded by Sir Georg Solti.

2011 is the 100th anniversary of the death of Gustav Mahler.

“But the further this genially sunlit work progressed, the more it came together, and soprano Camilla Tilling's paean to the joys of Mahler's (very strange) child's-eye view of heaven made a gloriously serene climax.” The Independent

“The bucolic Symphony No. 4 was genial and fairly rapt in the finale, where Camilla Tilling was the expressive soprano soloist.” Financial Times

“…the World Orchestra for Peace gave exemplary performances of Mahler's Symphonies Nos 4 and 5, one serene and summery, Camilla Tilling the soprano soloist, the other passionate in its wintery maturity” The Independent

“There is certainly a sense of holding in reserve in the Fourth Symphony...Camilla Tilling's brightly focused soprano is a plus in the finale. The Fifth Symphony displays far more drive and sharply characterised detail and draws some thrilling playing from the orchestra's principal trumpet and horn.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2011 ****

“Excitingly filmed and with fine playing” Classic FM Magazine, July 2011 ***

“One can only marvel at the collective skill and intuition that guides this tatterdemalion band through heavy-metal thrash second movement and at Gergiev's power of selective concentration, worthy of Karajan.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2011

Barbara Kilduff (soprano) & Christa Ludwig (mezzo)

National Choir 'Rinat', Tel Aviv Philharmonic Choir, Ihud Choir & Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, James Levine

"I don't remember when last the Israeli orchestra played as it did last night...I don't remember an Israeli choir ever singing in whispers, as the three choirs that participated in the performance sang together last night. And Christa Ludwig was also with them, a singer with the presence of a queen..The moment when Ludwig's voice was heard in Urlicht ('first light' in the fourth section) will not be forgotten: the human warmth and depth of expression raised the great performance of the symphony another level."

Rafael Kubelik became acquainted with Mahler’s music as young man, inspired by the work of Bruno Walter, Erich Kleiber and Fritz Busch. It was Kubelik who instigated the revival of Mahler’s work, culminating in Kubelik being the first conductor to perform a complete Mahler cycle, which took place in Munich. This CD was recorded live on June 4, 1975 at the Bunka Kaikan Concert Hall, Tokyo.

“In short, this is one of the finest single-disc editions of this harrowing symphony available on disc.” Andante
