Notes & Reviews:

Gustav Mahler, born on 7th July 1860, was not only a great composer but a fine conductor who influenced his successors in both fields; indeed his appeal to subsequent generations has been extensive and wide - Zemlinsky, Schonberg, Berg and Webern in Austria, Shostakovitch in Russia, Britten in Britain and Copland in America are just a few to acknowledge their debt. To celebrate his monumental 150th anniversary, EMI Classics releases Mahler's complete works performed by some of the world's most highly lauded performers of the past and present. Works include the rightly famous "Resurrec-tion" symphony recording conducted by Otto Klemperer, a live recording of Symphony No.5 in C sharp minor - including the famous Adagietto, as well as Sir Simon Rattle's account of the Third Symphony together with the movement Blumine, originally planned for the First Symphony, conducted by Paavo Jarvi.

"Having all these pieces together in one large collection is undeniably a great convenience, and many will consider buying this set not only for that reason, but also for the historic nature of the recordings... The significance of these recordings, the mix of ADD and DDD recordings, and the performance dates, ranging from 1952 to 2010, make this item well-suited for a music library or a specialist's collection, so it is recommended for any who are fully acquainted with Mahler's work." -All Music Guide
