Mahler: Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection' / Jurowski

Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 2 in C minor "Resurrection"
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The London Philharmonic Orchestra has a long heritage with Mahler's symphonies cemented in a mid-European tradition through Tennstedt's work with the Orchestra in the 1980s and early 1990s. Jurowski has waited longer than many conductors before tackling Mahler because to conduct Mahler is "to touch on something that is for me extremely precious and personal".
Recorded live at London's Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall in September 2009, Mahler's Second Symphony is a compelling start to Jurowski's documentation of this great composer. The conductor's approach fully reveals the dynamic extremes in Mahler, emphasizing Jurowski's sensitivity and control.

"This epic journey from dark to light is hardly short of recordings, but this live one can hold its head up high. The soloists are superb, and the LPO plays beautifully for Jurowski, who shows a total mastery of pacing. The huge narrative of the finale can easily sag, but here it leads unerringly to the magical choral entry." -The Telegraph****
