Notes & Reviews:

This 1988 live recording of Gustav Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde features Sir Colin Davis conducting the BRSO. Mr. Davis was the orchestra's principal conductor from 1983-93. Mezzo-soprano Doris Soffel has earned an international reputation as one of the finest interpreters of Mahler's works, while American tenor Kenneth Riegel has for decades been a regular performer on the world's opera stages. "Colin Davis... brought immense authority and palpable zest to his music-making on both sides of the Atlantic." (New York Times) "... a maestro without airs and graces" (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
