Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jason Starr, producer/director of the superb documentary on Mahler’s Symphony No.3, What the Universe Tells Me, has now turned his attention to Mahler’s great Symphony No.2 “Resurrection”. For this production, he has enlisted a “super-orchestra” comprised of musicians from the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, New Jersey Symphony, Detroit Symphony and the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. His outstanding soloists are soprano Twyla Robinson and Mezzo-soprano Susanne Mentzner joining the New York Choral Artists and Riverside Chorale, all under the exciting direction of Maestro Neeme Järvi.

This is a Mahler Second of unsurpassed demonstration quality, shot in High Definition, presented on this DVD release in 16:9
