Notes & Reviews:
Gilbert Kaplan is one of today's most authoritative and acclaimed interpreters of Mahler's Symphony No. 2, having conducted the work at the invitation of more than 65 orchestras. His 1987 recording with the London Symphony Orchestra is the best-selling Mahler recording in history, named a New York Times "Record of the Year." A second recording, with the Vienna Philharmonic, is the best-selling recording of Mahler's Second since its date of release. Now, with his third recording based on a live performance at the Konzerthaus in Vienna, Kaplan is set to make history once again, providing an opportunity for chamber, community, and regional opera orchestras to perform this work that normally requires more than 100 musicians (there are only 56 musicians performing on this recording). His recording with the Vienna Chamber Symphony sets the benchmark.
