“This is a great disc, and no mistake. It is the first to which I am glad to give the “IRR Outstanding” appellation. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.’ (International Record Review).
“at once the most ambitious and the most impressive in Gergiev’s Mahler series…The atmosphere of a great occasion is caught admirably, with the timpani and organ very impressive…A most competitive version.” (Penguin Guide)
“the final Chorus Mysticus brings a real sense of gravitas and uplift. The massed voices are wonderfully hushed” (Gramophone)
