Michael Cookson
MusicWeb International, July 2013

This concert was quite an event on the international stage…Throughout, the video director has done a superb job providing just enough variety and not disturbing the enjoyment by allowing the cameras latitude to flick around too much. The picture clarity, sound quality and overall production has resulted in a highly desirable Mahler DVD.

The voices of Anja Harteros and Bernarda Fink together with the magnificent playing and singing of the Bavarian orchestra and chorus under Mariss Jansons is remarkable right from climaxes of sonic proportions to the high strings playing the softest pianissimo. Under their chief conductor I couldn’t currently name a finer orchestra. Bravo! © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen…is a masterpiece of its kind, beautifully sung here, and a perfect prelude to the gigantic symphony. This is surely among the finest Resurrections you will hear, the Bavarian Orchestra and chorus are superb, and Brian Large does his usual expert job directing the video, with cameras almost always exactly where they should be. Audio is…super-clear and impressive…first-rate in every way. © 2013 ClassicalCDReview.com Read complete review
