Notes & Reviews:

"Tennstedt’s 1986 Mahler 8 is one of the high points of his cycle. This 1991 concert with different soloists is even better. Partly it’s the extra edge of the concert performance; partly it’s the camera work. No camera could capture all of what’s happening in this piece without a split screen, but the choices here are sensible and serve the bigger picture. This is a textbook example of how filming can enhance a concert recording. The camera going back and forth among the soloists, the orchestra, and the chorus reminds me of the "all the humanity is listening" opening shots of Bergman’s film of ‘The Magic Flute’... The soloists are all fine (the women all sing beautifully and in tune!), as are the choral and orchestral performers. Tennstedt’s richly emotional concept of the work is strongly projected with huge forces... Don’t miss this one if you love Mahler." - ARG
