Notes & Reviews:

The San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas have won Grammy Awards for previous Mahler symphonies in this cycle. This one, with its "chorus of 1000" should be a strong contender for the 3 awards it is nominated for: Best Classical Album, Best Choral Performance and Best Engineered Album.

BBC Music Magazine
In part II, however, Tilson Thomas manages to create a sense of rapt introspection and untroubled serenity far removed from the more tangible and portentous lyricism Solti tends to provide in quiet passages. ... this is one of the most consistently satisfying and stimulating Mahler's Tenth, receives a lovingly harrowing performance; it demonstrates MTT's ability to characterise Mahler precisely and effectively without wallowing in undirected or unwarranted emotion.

Gramophone Magazine
Tilson Thomas's reading is always warm and spontaneous-sounding but its real strength lies in the way phrases connect so that what can sometimes seem, on certain versions, merely a series of episodes...emerges very much 'of a piece'...Tilson Thomas [draws] more colour and variety (tonal and emotional) from the score than almost any of his rivals

The Guardian
Very much on the plus side are the ¬superlative orchestral playing, which is as consistently fine and well integrated as in any Mahler cycle currently ¬available on disc, and the exceptional dynamic range and refinement of the ¬recorded sound, which is demonstrated even more spectacularly than before
