Wonderful performance - the best disc of Gergiev's Mahler cycle,
This review is from: Mahler - Symphony No. 1 (LSO/ Gergiev) (Audio CD)
Every time, when I listen this disc, I see the love story in my mind. Fight, death and victory. The last movement tells it to us. I love this disc - this is absolutely the best performance of this work. London Symphony Orchestra plays gloriously. I haven't heard this disc in SACD format, but I believe, that then this review is useless - I need to give six stars to this disc. Highly recommend, absolutely. BUY THIS DISC, RIGHT NOW!
