Notes & Reviews:
Gustave Mahler composed his 'Fifth Symphony' in the summers of 1901 and 1902 whilst staying at the Worthersee in the Austrian Alps, and the influence of nature around him is unquestionable, particularly in the third movement. Elsewhere, Mahler's personal life is reflected in the themes of death, marital love, and exuberant joy. Jaap van Zweden is a renowned interpreter of Mahler; in this live performance recorded in January 2008, he conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra in an outstanding, energetic reading of this powerful work.
