Notes & Reviews:

Following the sensational hit of Mahler's First Symphony, this is the second in the series of Mahler symphonies recorded by Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Honeck finds this symphony especially dear to his heart, evoking the world of Mahler with "the interplay of the eerie and the idyllic."

"By now the casual observer of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra under music director Manfred Honeck might be thinking, 'Mahler again? Haven't they played him enough?' But to the die-hard patron - and to most in the audience last night at Heinz Hall - the resounding answer is, 'NEVER!' ... When you are in its grasp, this symphony can become a transcendent experience. Especially when you are guided by an expert who feels deeply for this composer, as is the case with Mr. Honeck." -Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
