The penultimate release in Valery Gerhgiev’s acclaimed Mahler cycle features Symphony No 5, recorded at the Barbican in September 2010.

Mahler’s Fifth Symphony marked a new direction in his compositions and a step away from the choral elements of the previous three symphonies. Despite the opening funereal trumpet solo and march, the work was completed during one of the happiest periods of Mahler’s life, and the symphony showcases virtuosic orchestral playing, an exquisite love song without words for his wife Alma, and a jubilant finale.

"...This entire performance is electrifying - one of the best in the catalogue-and the London Symphony has never sounded better. The SACD recording is detailed and resonant, with plenty of bass and brilliance..."

Buerkle - American Record Guide - July/August 2011


"This is a magnificent performance in every respect. The orchestral playing is consistently of the highest quality, individually and collectively, the musicians clearly inspired by the insight and total conviction of their conductor. No one can afford to ignore this record."
