All Music Guide (USA)

"The massed horns sound magnificent in the finale’s battle-cries, and all of the principals tackle their parts with aplomb. It’s good to hear this symphony played with the sort of gruff, raw vigor that suits its heroic cast so well."

"The Finale is Gergiev’s masterpiece ... All concerned play their hearts out. The hi-res sound engineering is superb."
Best of the Year Discs 2008
 

Audiophile Audition

"This is a reading of great intensity, creating a most powerful impact ... a stunning performance of considerable musical belief in the demonstable fact that Mahler’s Sixth is a great and original masterpeice."

International Record Review

"... It shows how Mahler’s neurosis and Gergiev’s volatility are ideally matched: this is no plain-sailing excercise in orchestral virtuosity, but a deeply wrought journey of the soul ... The performance as a whole achieves an impressive balance between structure and detail."

"it is difficult to resist Valery Gergiev in full flow. He summons such reserves of power and commitment from the LSO that one cannot help but be swept along."
