Album Summary

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

Notes & Reviews:

Firma Melodiya presents a recording of Gustav Mahler's Second Symphony interpreted by Yuri Temirkanov. The Second Symphony was a landmark in Mahler's artistic biography. It took him six years to compose it (1888 to 1894), and chronologically it concurred with the swift rise of his conducting career. A large-scale line-up and gigantic volume of the symphony (it lasts more than 80 minutes) did not prevent it from becoming one of Mahler's most popular works that has been subjected to numerous interpretations by conductors. Yuri Temirkanov heads now the Academic Symphony Orchestra of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Society and previously conducted the orchestra of the State Academic Kirov (now Mariinsky) Opera and Ballet Theatre for many years. With that orchestra, he was one of the first in the USSR who realized the recording of Mahler's Second Symphony in 1980. The recording features Kirov Theatre soloists Evgenia Gorokhovskaya and Galina Kovalyova.
