Notes and Editorial Reviews

James Conlon’s 1994 account of MAHLER’s Fifth Symphony (CDE 5 74979 2) played by the Cologne Gürzenich Orchestra (which gave the premiere under Mahler himself in October 1904) didn’t attract the critical acclaim it deserved, largely because the work has been over-recorded by the world’s more glamorous ensembles. However, Conlon directs a lucid, majestic performance, skilfully played and expertly recorded.
