Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The recording of Mahler’s Ninth offers a fine interpretation, with a particularly well conceived reading of the first movement. As spacious as his conception of this piece may be, it is also possesses a dynamism that makes it compelling...As he would do later with the Ninth, Schwarz maintains a sense of direction that allows the structure to emerge in the opening movement of the First Symphony." - Opera Today "The recording of Mahler’s Ninth offers a fine interpretation, with a particularly well conceived reading of the first movement.
