Notes & Reviews:

"Nobody saw this one coming. Philadelphia-born James DePreist had a good recording presence during his years with the Oregon Symphony Orchestra, but recent health problems (a kidney transplant), an entry into academia (the Juilliard School), and a geographically remote conducting appointment (the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra) took him out of the American symphony mainstream. But here we have core repertoire with a great orchestra, and a recording made under studio conditions at London's Abbey Road. The production values alone are a major selling point: Mahler's orchestration emerges in beautiful but not artificial terraces of sound that are nearly impossible to achieve at the orchestra's home hall in the Barbican Centre. And though you'd expect an artist of DePreist's caliber to know the symphony inside out, he clearly feels every nanosecond in ways that remind you why initial encounters with this symphony were all but overwhelming." -The Philadelphia Enquirer (4 Stars)
