Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection'

Symphony No. 10 in F sharp major - Adagio


"Valery Gergiev's Mahler cycle with the London Symphony Orchestra seems now to have found its identity and this thrilling account of the 'Resurrection' Symphony, heard on the second of two consecutive evening performances, bore many of the hallmarks that have distinguished the series so far: dramatic, driven and occasionally impatient. With the LSO on splendid form, producing a brilliant, bright sound that pushed the Barbican's close acoustic to its limits, Gergiev presided over a drama of despair and redemption of the greatest intensity…The LSO chorus was in glorious voice and egged on more and more by Gergiev they joined with the orchestra to produce an enormous, brilliant and overwhelming sound. The pure, visceral thrill of the final bars, greeted with an enthusiastic ovation from the packed audience, crowned a very fine performance of this great work." MusicalCriticsm.com

"Faced with the London Symphony Orchestra's concentrated glare and attack, I considered cowering under my seat" The Times

“Singing without scores, the London Symphony Chorus are on unambiguous great form. Once Gergiev has the bit between his teeth, the tension hardly lets up…” Gramophone Magazine, March 2009

Mahler: Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection'


Recorded - Kingsway Hall, London, May 1966

“... the new Decca stereo recording has special points of excellence all its own. The most striking thing in the whole performance, for me, is the first movement, in which Solti penetrates to the inner significance of the unusual structure with an insight I have never encountered before. The short movement for contralto is treated sensitiviely. Helen Watts sings beautifully. The vast finale ... usually comes off almost automatically ... Solti builds it up impressively ... chorus, orchestra and soloists leave nothing to be desired ... the stereo recording is one of Decca's best... bringing off perfectly all the different perspectives of the off-stage brass. The early unison calls are certainly "in the far distance"; the marching band music is indeed "scarcely perceptible" and then "getting nearer"; the later fanfares for the four trumpets are electrifyingly "much nearer"; ... we have surely the sound Mahler must have imagined, according to his meticulous indications” Gramophone Magazine

Wiener Philharmoniker & Wiener Singverein, Pierre Boulez

Larry L. Dash wrote in the Financial Times: 'Boulez's Mahler is revelatory in its leanness: no frills, just the music . . . I was trembling by the end of the performance . . . This was not merely an evening's entertainment, but a life-changing experience for anyone who thought they knew their Mahler.'

Czech Philharmonic Choir Brno & Orchestre National de Lille, Jean-Claude Casadesus

Majestic and profoundly moving, Mahler's 2nd Symphony ('Resurrection') constitutes one of the towering monuments of late-19th-century symphonic music and is one of the composer's most popular works. Jean-Claude Casadesus chose this work, which has accompanied him for many years, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his Orchestre National de Lille. This version, recorded live in the Auditorium du Nouveau Siècle in November 2015, is a deeply moving expression of the maestro's love for this immense composer. In 1976, with the support of the States and of the Nord-pas-de-Calais region Jean-Claude Casadesus created Orchestre National de Lille, which since has become a reference radiating in the heart of its region as well as the rest of France and abroad.

“[Casadesus argues] plausibly for light-textured Mahler [and] the avoidance of emotional overload might pay dividends for some listeners…Hermine Haselböck is a fine singer whose ‘Urlicht’ is straightforwardly conceived…the line is secure, the vibrato focused, and those impressed by her piano-accompanied Mahler songs may wish to explore further” Gramophone Magazine, February 2017

Mahler: Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection'


The epic Symphony No. 2 brought Gustav Mahler and Otto Klemperer together in 1905, when the 20-year-old conductor took charge of the off-stage band for a performance in Berlin. Mahler, impressed, subsequently recommended him for appointments in Prague and Hamburg. In this recording Klemperer rewards the composer’s faith with an interpretation of granite-like strength, drawing magnificent performances from orchestra, chorus and soloists.
