Hybrid Multichannel SACD

A century after they were written, Mahler's symphonies remain among the most challenging works in the symphonic repertoire, demanding the highest level of orchestral virtuosity and the utmost interpretive insight from the conductor. Mahler's spectacular orchestration presents a sonic palette of the utmost diversity, and a range of dynamic - from whispering solos to apocalyptic climaxes - certain to immerse the listener completely in his unique sound-world. Astonishingly, this recording marks the first time that any of Maestro Temirkanov's critically and publicly lauded Mahler interpretations with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic has been available in recorded form. Now, finally, audiences the world over have an opportunity to experience this extraordinary music in the hands of one of its greatest living interpreters.

Mahler Symphony No. 5
I. Trauermarsch. In gemessenem Schritt. Streng. Wie ein Kondukt
II. Stürmisch bewegt, mit grösster Vehemenz
III. Scherzo. Kräftig, nicht zu schnell
IV. Adagietto. Sehr langsam
V. Rondo-Finale. Allegro – Allegro giocoso. Frisch

I have been extremely pleased with the sound quality of this recording. The instrumental placement is clear and the hall acoustics resonate well in SACD. The performance itself is straightforward and clean, without the muddling and "over-interpretation" of some performances of this selection. Highly recommended!
