Notes & Reviews:
Claudio Abbado is undeniably the supreme Mahler conductor of our time. Here he conducts the composer's Fifth and most popular Symphony, which became world-famous as the soundtrack to Visconti's Death in Venice. Special Feature: The DVD includes the option to switch to the "Conductor Cam" and experience Abbado from the orchestra's perspective. "The best orchestra in the world." Der Tagesspiegel, Berlin, on the Lucerne Festival Orchestra
"Lucerne's acoustically superb KKL hall has this handpicked orchestra sounding most impressive: so is the performance, in its supercharged way" BBC Music Magazine, December 2010 ****
"The recorded sound of this Abbado-handpicked orchestra is something special. So is the playing, which has a full-throated, epic splendour from start to finish, under the unobtrusive command of Abbado's conducting." Classic FM Magazine, December 2010 ****
