One of the great Mahler conductors of our time, Christoph Eschenbach has a particularly close connection to the spiritual spheres of pain and relief in the music of Gustav Mahler. His recording of the Sixth Symphony, with The Philadelphia Orchestra, was hailed by Gramophone as "maybe the Sixth of first choice, sonically and interpretatively," and ClassicsToday stated, "No Mahlerian will want to miss it!" This new release features the Second Symphony, one of Mahler's most popular and successful works during his lifetime.The celestial Urlicht is performed by the celebrated mezzo-soprano Yvonne Naef. This is the eighth recording to be released under the "formidable Ondine-Eschenbach-Philadelphia partnership" (Gramophone) which began in 2005, and has produced discs that have been honoured with accolades including BBC Music Magazine's Disc of the Month, Gramophone Editor's Choice, among others.

IV. Urlicht: Sehr feierlich, aber schlicht

“When the lovely second subject of the first movement shyly, mysteriously, finds its voice here Eschenbach and his orchestra magically open up the imagination to a world of infinite possibility.”
