Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Tackling a Mahler symphony, it seems, is now the best way for a second-rank orchestra to present its credentials on CD. The success story here belongs to the Florida Philharmonic, a brightly streamlined ensemble which has clearly worked hard on detail with music director James Judd...it never sounds less than handsome, even when one has to strain to catch some of the pianissimos. Blumine, the movement Mahler discarded before publication, is especially welcome for the ineffably cool, poised tones of principal trumpeter Jeffrey Kaye."

 The Best I Have Heard February 17, 2017 By Charles W. (Tyler, TX) See All My Reviews "I am 75 years old and I have many of the great performances of this symphony (Bernstein, Walter,Solti, Muti Etc.) and I return to this performance from a provincial American orchestra and a conductor with whom I am not familiar. Terrific sound with impressive bass response great playing and conducting from a young man who sounds like he has been playing Mahler all his life." Report Abuse
