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.”

Classic FM Magazine

***

“Excitingly filmed and with fine playing”

Gramophone Magazine

August 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.”
