Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 1 in D major "Titan"
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The music of Gustav Mahler, the Late Romantic composer on the threshold of modernity, has been a firm part of the repertoire of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks ever since the early 1960s, when the orchestra's Mahler tradition was established by its former chief conductor Rafael Kubelik. BR-KLASSIK has already released Mahler's First (as part of an audiobook CD) and Seventh Symphonies with Mariss Jansons, as well as the Ninth with Bernard Haitink. The young Canadian conductor Yannick Nzet-Sguin is making his debut here on the BR-KLASSIK label with Mahler's First Symphony. He is one of the most important representatives of a younger generation of conductors and, since his European debut in 2004, has already conducted such renowned orchestras as the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic. Yannick Nzet-Sguin is currently chief conductor of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philadelphia Orchestra. - The Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks has a long-standing Mahler tradition - Exciting live atmosphere - First CD release with Yannick Nzet-Sguin conducting the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks - Classical music for beginners: a suitable introduction to Mahler's symphonic works - Booklet contains original symphony programme explanations by Mahler
