Mahler: Symphony no 3 / Haitink, DeYoung, Chicago SO

Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 3 in D minor
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"This live 2006 recording, which marks Haitink's debut as the CSO's principal conductor and features mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung, the Women of the Chicago Symphony Chorus, and the Chicago Children's Choir, also deserves serious consideration... Haitink's interpretation here is exacting, intense, and powerful, and the orchestra's playing is vivid and evocative, so there is nothing lacking in this concert performance... The sound of the recording is phenomenally deep, wide, and spacious, and the separation of the instruments is so realistic that one can easily imagine being in the front row of Orchestra Hall; the sonorities are so vibrant and the acoustics are so responsive that everything from the softest bass drum stroke to the glassiest harmonic has an almost palpable presence... But in the end, the performance is what matters most: this is an emotionally compelling rendition that holds its own with any version on the market, and it will satisfy any Mahlerian with its many passages of profound beauty, childlike playfulness, and spiritual ecstasy." -All Music
