Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 5 in C sharp minor
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Best-selling American conductor, David Zinman conducts the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich in Mahler's Symphony No.5 , one of the most accessible and one of the loveliest symphonies in the cycle. Portraying an epic journey from the darkness of its opening trumpet fanfares to its jubilant, Bach-inspired finale, it also includes the tender Adagietto written as a love letter to his wife Alma.

Penguin Guide
With very fine playing from the Tonhalle Orchestra and state-of-the-art SACD recording, Zinman offers a direct approach to Mahler to which many will respond.
