Notes & Reviews:
"If a conductor and a piece of music can ever be said to be perfectly matched, then Valery Gergiev is ideally suited to direct (this piece). A work that calls for the brutally frank expressions, explosive sonorities, and vibrant colors that this Russian conductor specializes in, the Symphony No. 6 really achieves its full potential in this gut-wrenching performance with the LSOThis recording has only one feature that might annoy some Mahler buffs, and that is the ordering of the inner movements: Gergiev takes the Andante moderato first, before the ScherzoThat said, this is a spectacular performance... highly recommended as one of the best of the year." -All Music Guide
