Mahler: Symphony no 3 / Gergiev, London SO, et al

Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 3 in D minor
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Gergiev emphasizes the dramatic aspects of the work strongly, but also delivers the many contrasting quieter passages with touching gentleness. The impact of the big climaxes - and there are many - come across impressively in the live recording made last year at London’s Barbican." -John Sunier of Audiophile Audition (audaud.com)

Penguin Guide
Intensely theatrical... The sharp dynamic contrasts are well brought out in the first movement, with all the colourful woodwind writing well highlighted and pointed... [Larsson] is very expressive and beautifully supported by the orchestra.

Gramophone Magazine
The first and third movements climax in a dash to the finishing-line that has one pinned to one's seat. The finale has an immediacy and machismo you may or may not find at odds with its elevated spiritual character.
