Album Summary

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

Notes & Reviews:

"...a powerful, cogent, and superbly played performance of the Resurrection Symphony chock-full of interesting and persuasive interpretive ideas... mezzo Loraine Hunt Lieberson, who has much more to sing than her colleague, delivers one of the finest performances of the fourth movement ever, on par with those of Christa Ludwig and Janet Baker, to name two of her illustrious predecessors. And Thomas has so much of value to tell us about how this music can be played... By any standard, there's more than enough here that's new and valid to warrant adding this release to your collection." -Classics Today (9/9)
