Notes & Reviews:
Commemorating the Mahler double anniversary season - a very special release from the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and their Music Director, Lan Shui! Available on Blu-ray and DVD, this is a performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 10 in the seldom-heard completion by American musicologist Clinton Carpenter. Recorded live in the spectacular Esplanade Concert Hall in Singapore, this is the first known video release of Carpenter's realization of Mahler's enigmatic final symphony. Adding to the uniqueness of the release is Wu Xing (The Five Elements), a work by one of today's leading Chinese composers, Chen Qi-gang. The American Record Guide has compared Lan Shui's achievements with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra to those of George Szell in Cleveland and Simon Rattle in Birmingham. He has recorded over a dozen discs that have garnered widespread acclaim and a Grammy Award nomination.
Bonus features include interviews with Lan Shui and photographs from the recording sessions. Interviews are spoken in English and subtitled in Chinese, French, Japanese, and German. Booklet is in English, French, German, Japanese, and Chinese.
