Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the city of Vienna’s renowned orchestra proudly presents the first production of its own, newly founded label. The first release is a paradigmatic example of the Wiener Symphoniker’s core repertoire. Gustav Mahler’s First Symphony in D major was written only four years before the orchestra was founded in 1900. So, not surprisingly, Gustav Mahler’s symphonies and their interpretational challenges were among the main interests of the orchestra and its many renowned conductors from the very beginning. Above that Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, being the first oeuvre of a Vienna revolutionary, is more than suitable for the start of a new Vienna orchestra label.
