The New York Philharmonic - America’s preeminent symphony orchestra - gave “A Concert for New York” to mark the tenth anniversary of the events of 9/11. What work could be better suited to the occasion than Mahler’s “Resurrection” Symphony with its “evocation of every aspect of life” and “its profound sense of hope”, as the Philharmonic’s Music Director Alan Gilbert put it? This concert became an unforgettable event, a “consistently impressive” performance with “gripping playing”, “magnificent” soloists and an “excellent” chorus (New York Times).

“Alan Gilbert has the right sense of momentum and expectation”

The Arts Desk

14th December 2011

“Mahler’s extravagance must be appealing to DVD producers. With this music there’s a wide dynamic range and huge forces to watch...it’s predictably an emotive occasion. And Alan Gilbert’s performance is pretty sound, even if you crave a little more recklessness and excess. The recorded sound is a little raw, and you do get a feel for the sheer terror which this symphony can evoke”
