Gustav Mahler: Symphony No. 2 in C minor, "Resurrection"

I. Allegro maestoso

II. Andante moderato

III. In ruhig fliessender Bewegung

IV. Urlicht: Sehr feierlich, aber schlicht

V. Finale: Im Tempo des Scherzos

“In the 'Urlicht' - nobly enhanced by Dagmar Peckova's deep contralto timbre - Young (as directed by Mahler but rarely practised) separates and distances the trumpets at the start as if we've suddenly entered another realm.”

International Record Review

May 2012

“Young's Second is, in a word, stunning. At once personally involving ad profoundly moving, this traversal finds her expertly marshalling highly accomplished forces through this 80-minute confrontation with life, death and the hereafter with such unwavering conviction that the ultimate triumph is never at issue...Young's new account merits high commendation and can hold its own in the most illustrious company.”
