Review By Robert Benson,,March 2013

Now we have this outstanding ICA issue of Symphony No. 1 from a concert November 22, 1999, and September 10, 2002, both recorded in the Concertgebouw. These are among the finest performances you’ll hear of either work, orchestral playing is spectacular, and the measured tempo at the climax of No. 8 is how it should be. The engineering team did their work to perfection…Balances, so difficult in Symphony No. 8, are just about perfect and the masses of sound are mightily impressive. This is a outstanding issue sure to delight Mahler fans. © 2013 Read complete review
