Notes & Reviews:

If there is one quality that summarizes Valery Gergiev’s Mahler, it is unpredictability. It is music making that lives in the moment - it speaks to the heart rather than the head. Gergiev’s interpretation of Mahler’s Resurrection symphony provides a wealth of emotional and spiritual riches. Throughout the performance, the London Symphony Orchestra’s players give Gergiev their total commitment, producing delicate pianissimos and climaxes of thunderous and percussive power. Gramophone wrote of Maestro Gergiev's Mahler: "It is difficult to resist Valery Gergiev in full flow. He summons such reserves of power and commitment from the LSO that one cannot help but be swept along."

Gramophone Magazine
Singing without scores, the London Symphony Chorus are on unambiguous great form. Once Gergiev has the bit between his teeth, the tension hardly lets upà
