Product description

Product Description

The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and their Music Director Riccardo Chailly have already acquired legendary status glorious reviews and many awards for their recordings testifying to their continuing success. At Leipzigs International Mahler Festival, to mark the centenary of Mahlers death, they performed his monumental Second Symphony in the Gewandhaus together with two marvellous soloists and choral forces quite beyond compare. About the final movement the composer said: The increasing tension, working up to the final climax, is so tremendous that I dont know myself, now that it is over, how I ever came to write it.

Review

These are two exceptional Mahler performances.Chailly's consuming joy in making music-and particular performing Mahler-shines through these moving concerts.I recommend these DVD's very highly indeed.(reviewing both Mahler 2 and 8) --IRR,Nov'11

…streamlined and sophisticated. Perfomance **** Picture and Sound ***** --BBC Music Magazine,Jan'12

...the excellent Sarah Connolly provides a lovely,intimate reading of 'Urlict'.Strongly recommended. --Gramophone,Jan'12

For a state-of-the-art DVD of this masterpiece, there's no need to look further. EDITORS CHOICE ***** --Classic FM Magazine,Feb'12
