Notes & Reviews:
Bernard Haitank is a regular guest on the podium of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. In December 2011, the conductor from the Netherlands led the orchestra in Mahler's Ninth Symphony and was highly praised for his "old-wise" interpretation. Following Bruckner's 5th Symphony, this is the second release Bernard Haitink has presented with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra on the BR Klassik label.
The Guardian, July 2012
There's a feeling of urgency about this new performance that I don't remember in Haitink's Mahler before, as if he is now almost impatient with the Ninth's resigned acceptance of mortality. There's an angularity about the woodwind lines and a rawness to the textures from what is one of Europe's finest orchestras that seems to expose the music's nerve ends; it's not always comfortable listening, but it is sometimes startling.
