Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

October 2011 marked the 100th anniversary of the Hamburg premiere of Mahler's Second Symphony. This release features music recorded from the previous year with the Hamburg Philharmonic under the direction of Simone Young. Michaela Kaune and Dagmar Pecková appear as the soloists, performing with the NDR Choir and the Latvia State Choir in an impressive interpretation of Mahler's Second.

MusicWeb International
the heroine of the hour is Simone Young who, while no stranger to these symphonies, here confirms her Mahlerian credentials in a most emphatic fashion. ... this Resurrection belongs in the select company of recent issues from Zinman, Nott and Levine, all of whom bring something memorable to this oft-played score.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Laeiszhalle, Hamburg (10/24/2010-10/25/2010).
