Mahler: Symphony no 6 / Mariss Jansons, London SO

Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 6 in A minor "Tragic"
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"This performance is sourced from a pair of London concerts generally rated among the highlights of last winter's season. Its virtues are apparent still, but on disc the competition is fierce with 'classic' alternatives well entrenched. It was Karajan's mid-'70s version that confirmed him as a major Mahlerian, while Bernstein, in his more emotive, less consciously beautifying way, left us readings of strength and conviction." - David Gutman, Gramophone

Presto Classical, June 2014
Jansons coaxes some extraordinary playing from the London Symphony Orchestra, with deep, rich strings, characterful woodwind and peerless brass. This performance also happens to have the most satisfying hammer blows of any performance I've heard!
