Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 8 in E flat major
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Now at last Mahler's 'Symphony of a Thousand' can be heard on record at something approaching its full, expansive stature. Here is a version from Solti which... conveys the feeling of a great occasion... so overwhelming is the build-up of tension." -Gramophone

Penguin Guide
outstanding in every way, extrovert in display but full of dark implications...one of [Solti's] finest Mahler records
