Notes & Reviews:

In the years 1976-1982 the Czech Philharmonic recorded the complete symphonies of Gustav Mahler with conductor Vclav Neumann (1920-1995), outstanding soloists Gabriela Benackov, Magdalena Hajssyov, Eva Randov, Inge Nielsen, Daniela Sounov, Vera Soukupov, Libuse Mrov, Thomas Moser, Richard Novk and Karel Berman, plus the Knhn's Children's Choir, Prague Radio Choir and Prague Philhamonic Choir. In his time, Vclav Neumann was a great propagator of Mahler's symphonic works. His recordings are convincing evidence of the quality of the Czech Philharmonic even today. These 11 CDs capture Mahler's gigantic symphonic repertoire, which has attracted the special attention of conductors, orchestras and audiences since the 1960s. Recorded 1976 - 1982.
