Notes & Reviews:

Rozhdestvensky was the first Russian conductor to perform and record all Mahler's symphonies in his country. Das klagende Lied is performed here live. The ICA version has been remastered, restoring the wide dynamics of Rozhdestvensky's magnificent performance. Janacek's The Fiddler's Child, from the 1979 Prague Festival, has never been issued before and is Rozdestvensky's only taping of the work.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Vivid, dramatic performance is new to me - and a very welcome discovery it is. This performance is ample evidence of why British music lovers remember it fondly. This performance has all the white-hot intensity of the conductor at his best - fresh raw meat to a hungry tiger! Rozhdestvensky and soloist Dekany make a superb case for the work, and it's an excellent epilogue to the Mahler.
