LSO Live Gergiev Mahler Symphonies series
In March 2008 LSO Live will release its first recording with the orchestra's Principal Conductor Valery Gergiev. It is also Gergiev's first commercial recording of a Mahler symphony and marks the start of a complete cycle of the composer's symphonies.

Gergiev is conducting the cycle in concert with the LSO in London and on tour in Europe throughout the 2007-2008 season. The concerts culminate in performances of the Symphony No. 8 at St Paul's Cathedral in July 2008.
The LSO has a formidable reputation in Mahler's music, having worked in concert and in the studio with many of the greatest Mahler exponents. The intensity and drama which Gergiev brings to Mahler's music promises to produce one of the most astounding of cycles.
