Magnificent successor to Asrael,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Suk: A Summer's Tale/A Winter's Tale (Audio CD)
I suppose everything of Suk's is compared with the Asrael Symphony. A Summer's Tale was written just a few years later. It is very much a sequel and in some ways an even more impressive work. Summer is there, yes, but ghosts and shadows haunt it. There is also a sublimely poignant last movement, more moving for me than any of Mahler's final adagios. I challenge any one who likes the Asrael Symphony not to love A Summer's Tale. It is Suk at his very best.

Yes. There is something that is just more organic and spiritual about this, than Mahler. Of whom I find is too self conscious in most of his writings.
