Notes and Editorial Reviews
Klaus Tennstedt conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra through all nine of Mahler's complete symphonies-the ones known as Titan; Resurrection; Tragic; Song of the Night; Symphony of a Thousand , and all the others-plus the opening Adagio of his unfinished Symphony No. 10 . 11 CDs of music plus a suitably epic 72-page booklet!

All of Tennstedt's Mahler features such spontaneity, emotional honesty, and real human warmth that reservations about execution (where it exists) and sound largely fall by the wayside. Hearing it all again is a deeply moving experience.
