Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available: Mahler: Symphonies Nos 1, 2 & 3 / Maazel, Philharmonia Orchestra and
Mahler: Symphonies Nos 7, 8 & 9 / Maazel, Philharmonia Orchestra

REVIEW:

Throughout all three symphonies the playing of the Philharmonia is razor sharp and idiomatic: they’re consistently on top form for Maazel. The recorded sound is very good as are Julian Johnson’s notes. This is shaping up as a most interesting, if variable, Mahler cycle and I look forward to the next volume very much.
