The Gürzenich Orchestra’s debut with Mahler’s Fifth Symphony was well received: “..a reading which offers clarity and consistency. Recommended.” Gramophone. On this next volume of the cycle, Christine Oelze sings the soprano solo in the last movement. This recording, like its predecessor, was recorded in the outstanding acoustic of the Cologne Philharmonie.

BBC Music Magazine

***

“...in the opening movement the chamber-musical balances are exemplary, the gurgling Cologne clarinets suitably animalistic and...the development gathers the necessary scary shadows.”

Gramophone Magazine

Awards Issue 2010

“There's something disconcertingly old-fashioned about this performance, like being told hipsters are back in, only to find that, actually, they make a comfortable fit...Perhaps Markus Stenz has been listening to Mengelberg.”

International Record Review

February 2011

“The most impressive thing is that Stenz's expressive fervour and elasticity never sound contrived. He is very free with tempo in the first movement but makes this coherent and convincing - the playing has tremendous conviction. and Stenz and his orchestra are very attentive to detail too. Yet it's the freedom of phrasing and speeds that that give this recording a really individual stamp”
