Notes & Reviews:

One of the great conductors of our time, Christoph Eschenbach has a particularly close connection to the spiritually charged healing qualities of Gustav Mahler's music. His recording of the Sixth Symphony, with The Philadelphia Orchestra, was hailed by Gramophone as a "first choice, sonically and interpretatively." This new release features the Second Symphony ('Resurrection'), which was one of Mahler's most popular and successful works during his lifetime. The famous use of a chorus as the centerpiece of the Finale has often invited comparison with Beethoven's Symphony No. 9.

One of the great conductors of our time, Christoph Eschenbach has a particularly close connection to the spiritually charged healing qualities of Gustav Mahler's music. His recording of the Sixth Symphony, with The Philadelphia Orchestra, was hailed by Gramophone as maybe the Sixth of first choice, sonically and interpretatively. This new release features the Second Symphony (`Resurrection'), which was one of Mahler's most popular and successful works during his lifetime. The famous use of a chorus as the centerpiece of the Finale has often invited comparison with Beethoven's Symphony No. 9. The celestial Urlicht song of the fourth movement is performed by the celebrated mezzo-soprano Yvonne Naef. This is the eighth CD to be released under the formidable Ondine-Eschenbach-Philadelphia partnership (Gramophone) which began in 2005, and has produced discs that have been honored with accolades including BBC Music Magazine's Disc of the Month, Gramophone's Editor's Choice, and The New York Times' Top Ten Recordings of the Year.

Gramophone Magazine
When the lovely second subject of the first movement shyly, mysteriously, finds its voice here Eschenbach and his orchestra magically open up the imagination to a world of infinite possibility.
