Notes and Editorial Reviews
"In the two massive slow outer movements, he doesn’t wring out the final drops of emotion, but empathises with the love of life and the beauties of nature that paradoxically emerge from Mahler’s premonition of death." -- The Sunday Times
Acknowledged as the UK's foremost musical pioneers, with an extraordinary recording legacy, the Philharmonia leads the field for its quality of playing. Together with its relationships with the most sought-after artists, most importantly its Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Esa-Pekka Salonen, the Philharmonia Orchestra is at the heart of British musical life.
Esa-Pekka Salonen made his London conducting debut with the Philharmonia Orchestra in September 1983
and he has returned to conduct the Orchestra on a regular basis ever since. This is the third in our series of Phliharmonia releases that feature Salonen as conductor following Schoenberg's Gurrelieder SIGCD173 and Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique SIGCD193.
