Customer Reviews

Great Performance!

Wow! What an amazing performance! The intonation and musicality of this wonderful interpretation by Valery Gergiev is a work worth a Grammy. The resonance and overall quality is very exceptional. If you were to buy any Mahler Symphony, this one is by far the best pick.

The much-awaited Mahler cycle.

Yes, it has begun. It is really nice, seeing Gergiev conduct something outside his normal habits, being a Russian interpreter. I have really waited for his Mahler cycle. I love it!

Don't Miss This One

I've lost count of the Mahler 6th's I own on LP, CD, and now downloads. The ones I have cherished over the years included Karajan, Barbarolli, Abbado, Bernstein, Solti, Szell, Zander, Kubelik (always underrated as a Mahler conductor), and Horenstein. I just listened to the Gergiev sitting at my computer through Sennheiser earphones: I must said "Oh my Lord" at least a dozen times -- this is as good as it can get. The famous "Alma" theme has never been rendered with more impact, and with no sense of the conductor trying to drain it of emotion. Deeply satisfying, in every way.

He is also known for the rather gruff, unshaven appearance he cultivates. Born in Moscow to Ossetian parents, he showed tremendous musical talent in early childhood. Deciding while still in his teens that he wanted to become a conductor, Gergiev entered the conducting class of Ilya Musin at the Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) Conservatory....
