Notes & Reviews:

This Oehms Classics release of Gustav Mahler's Ninth Symphony coupled with sole Mahler-completed movement (Adagio) from the Tenth signals the completion of the Markus Stenz led Mahler cycle with the Gürzenich Orchestra, Köln. Critical acclaim for this cycle has been outstanding, with the Third and Seventh Symphonies in particular being singled out as among the finest recordings currently available. 2013-14 marked Mr. Stenz's tenth and final season as Principal Conductor of the Gürzenich Orchestra.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
I find little expression in Stenz's 9. It's full of beautiful surfaces. The playing is very accomplished, and so is the sound. The Adagio of 10 fares a little better and has a nice descending slide in the cellos in the final measures. Oehms's sound is, as usual, superb.
