Notes and Editorial Reviews

"“Markus Stenz's is the kind of lightening-flash, clearly etched interpretation I imagine Roger Norrington wanted over in Stuttgart...There's not much vibrato here, but plenty of portamento...as Mahler asks. Moreover, there's a lucid balance between strings, wind and brass...Both soloists, Michaela Schuster and Christiane Oelze, ooze meaning, as does the choir...there are details here that I will return to constantly for illustration and enlightenment.”"
