Notes & Reviews:

One of the fi nest and most critically acclaimed releases in Michael Tilson Thomas' award-winning Mahler cycle with the San Francisco Symphony, the third is the most expansive of Mahler's symphonies. There are moments of angst here, but the overwhelming message is of love's redeeming power. The peaks this great work scales are some of the most glorious in all music. Featured performers include mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung, the Women of the SFS Chorus, the Pacific Boychoir and the San Francisco Girls' Chorus. The album also includes Mahler's heartbreaking Kindertotenlieder. This reissue from SFS Media maintains the Hybrid SACD format favored by many classical consumers, whilst streamlining the packaging to jewel case and thus providing excellent value.
