Notes and Editorial Reviews



With this release of the Symphony No.5, Daniel Harding and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra continue their survey of Mahler's symphonies. Among its most distinctive features are the trumpet solo that opens the work (which calls to mind Beethoven's fifth), the horn solos in the third movement and the popular Adagietto. Lasting over an hour, both the musical canvas and emotional scope of this work are vast. A daunting challenge for any orchestra, under Daniel Harding the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra offers listeners a performance to remember.
