Mahler: Symphonies Nos 7, 8 & 9 / Maazel, Philharmonia Orchestra


A willful First, a splendid Second, and an incandescent Third. Make no mistake, for all his faults - perceived or otherwise - Maazel is a Mahlerian of considerable consequence. Moreover, I haven’t heard the Philharmonia play with such sustained intensity in ages, and that’s no accident. I wasn't sure I could endure yet another Mahler marathon, but if this one maintains its promising trajectory it will be well worth the effort.
