 Mariss Jansons
  27-28 November 2002 (live recording)  


Mahler said that his sixth symphony expressed ’the cruelties I have suffered and the pains I’ve felt.’ Few symphonies have captured emotions with such brutal perfection, nor been so prophetic.

Mariss Jansons’s performances of the symphony were truly revelatory events, greeted with unanimous critical and public acclaim. The recording is his first release on LSO Live.

"I was absolutely knocked out ... wonderful"
James Jolly (editor of Gramophone Magazine)
