Notes & Reviews:

Valery Gergiev's performances and recordings of Mahler's symphonies with the London Symphony Orchestra have garnered international acclaim. They have performed the works in Europe, North America and the Far East and their recordings have received numerous awards. The symphonies were originally released between 2008 and 2011 and will now be made available together for the first time as a specially priced and beautifully packaged ten SACD boxed set. Each of Mahler's symphonies could be considered a masterpiece, employing large orchestras, matching his view of the symphony as an all-encompassing form of musical expression. Mahler drew inspiration widely, but certain themes recur frequently - wisdom, love, grief, mortality and death.
