Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian
Zinman's Mahler never peaks too soon, never shows all its emotional cards too early, that that confidence to keep something in reserve as long as possible pays dividends in the second part...Both solo and choral singing are consistently good...but it's the measured, musical nous of Zinman's conducting that really deserves the spotlight.

Sunday Times
The intensity and beauty of the string sound in the long orchestral introduction to Part II is vintage Mahler in Zinman's loving, but never self-indulgent, hands... it's clear he remains one of the world's most inquiring senior maestros, looking for fresh perspectives. In his Mahler cycle, he has certainly found those.

Gramophone Magazine
It sounds tall, wide and handsome in that wonderfully open Zinman way, and in the central development section he and his engineers ensure that we hear right into the texture, our ears led on by every strand of counterpoint.
