Mahler's 6th Symphony. A great orchestra. Valery Gergiev, one of today's leading conducters. A brand new hybrid SACD recording. And all at a most affordable price. Read morePublished on 14 Aug. 2008 by bluecougar25
This is a super-fast Mahler 6 from Gergiev, polishing up the also-ran into something quite bright and sprightly. Read morePublished on 24 July 2008 by Nettlewine
The CD is very well produced. The music depends very much what mood you're in. What sometimes seems passionate and dramatic on other days is overblown and silly. Read morePublished on 18 July 2008 by Stephen Hampshire
