Notes & Reviews:

Pierre Boulez's Mahler cycle, which started almost 20 years ago with the recording of the Sixth Symphony in 1994, has now reached its conclusion with the release, this year, of songs from Des Knabenwunderhorn and the Adagio from the Tenth Symphony.

Without a doubt, this has been one of the greatest recording projects of its time - with two of the symphony recordings receiving Grammy Awards.

The complete cycle of symphonies and songs is now presented for the first time in a single set of 14 CD at budget price. This is a non-limited edition. the set features the top orchestras: Chicago Symphony Orchestra (nos. 1 and 9), the Wiener Philharmoniker (nos. 2, 3, 5, 6, Das Lie), the Cleveland Orchestra (nos. 4, 7, 10), and the Staatskapelle Berlin (no. 8). The earlier version (Totenfeier) of the first movement of the Second Symphony is also included.

It also includes Das Lied von der Ere, Lieder eines fahrendes Gesellen, Ruckert-Lieder and Kindertontoenlieder - all with top soloists such as Christine Schafer, Anne Sofie von Otter, Juliane Banse, Magdalena Kozena, Thomas Quathoff, Violeta Urmana, Michael Schade.

The accompanying booklet includes a new essay by Wolfgang Stahr and the sung texts and English translations of all works.

The Boulez boxes of recent years (Bartok Stravinsky Debussy & Ravel) have all been successful, with nearly 20,000 sets sol since 2009. We expect the Mahler set will attract great attention an achieve the best results of all - it's so full of wonderful recordings and marks a glorious peak in Boulez's recording career.
