This review is from: Mahler: Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection' (Audio CD)
This recording of this spectacular work is breathtaking. For a start the sound on the EMI label has fantastic depth and allows the expansiveness of the work to be brought out to the full. Rattles interpretation is unsurpassed right from the very first string tremolo to the exuberant close. He brings out the grotesque elements of the score very well and his attention to detail is wonderful. Janet Baker is on fine form in the rendition of Urlicht and coupled with superb singing and playing this makes this a clear must for any Mahler enthusiast.
