Disc of the Month 'powerfully presented by Gergiev and the LSO, with excellent playing from all sections’ Audiophile Audition

Mahler’s extraordinary Second Symphony deals with the epic themes of life, death, faith, and love. He employs a vast orchestra in a search for salvation through spirituality, including a battery of brass, two soloists, and choir. The theme of death also pervades his unfinished Tenth, yet here one finds a sense of peace and a heartfelt expression of human love.
