Written in the summer of 1910, Symphony No. 10 was Gustav Mahler’s final work. + At the time of the composer’s death, the composition was not fully orchestrated, and was unperformable. The version performed here is the Deryck Cooke final version. + The Seattle Symphony performs this monumental composition under the baton of Principal Guest Conductor Thomas Dausgaard. + On this live performance: “It was impossible to be in the house and not realize that something rare and significant had taken place.” (The Seattle Times)

Gramophone Magazine

September 2016

“You may be surprised by Thomas Dausgaard’s force and conviction as a Mahlerian. This exceptional issue from the Pacific Northwest ought to be a game-changer for all concerned”

MusicWeb International

October 2016

“What a fabulous string section this orchestra has - violins absolutely fearless in Mahler’s exposed high lines, cellos and basses like rich velvet. They’re totally in sympathy with Dausgaard’s very human take on the work. The first movement’s screaming discord is terrifying, but what lingers is how this conductor leads us out of the shadows.”

Stereophile (USA)

13th July 2016

“You will have to hunt far and wide for a finer-sounding recording of Mahler's final Tenth Symphony than this one...It is the beauty of the symphony's lyrical unfolding, and the gut-wrenching contrast between it and the elements that break it apart, that make Seattle Symphony's recording of Mahler's magnificent farewell a must-hear.”

BBC Music Magazine

Christmas 2016


“Here, by an exceptional command of long-term tempo relationships Dausgaard manages to unify the symphony into single whole. Without loss of intensity, it emerges as not only a psychological document but an orchestral classic – fully realised by the Seattle Symphony, long an adventurous outfit but here sounding like one of the world’s great orchestras”
