Notes & Reviews:

"This CD is a live recording of a concert on March 27, 2010 that was performed in the Vienna Konzerthaus. It is particularly attractive due to the outstanding group of soloists, which includes Johan Botha, Jane Henschel and Kwangchoul Youn. Bertrand de Billy also proves his ability here to bring out the finest, subtlest music-making from even the largest orchestral and choral bodies."

Fanfare
... the performance makes a very enjoyable listening experience... the "Chorus Mysticus" is effectively solemn and stately at the beginning, building slowly to a final verse that falls short of the kind of majestic conclusion that can make this symphony a truly transcendent experience. Rattle paces his finale beginning with a warmer choral entry, and with a more flexible ebb and flow, letting the momentum peak at the second "Alles Vergängliche," then crowning the performance with a much more satisfyingly climactic orchestral coda.
