Karl Lozier
Positive Feedback Online, September 2012

The well known large-scale early Mahler composition is deservedly quite famous. It features a very large orchestra, vocalists and choir. As you might notice…it has the subtitle of “Resurrection”. Apply that to what happened in New York on 9/11/2001 and realize the extreme feelings of the New York audience and the obvious passion of the performers. Together they are the makings of a possible historic recording heard and seen here and highly recommended in an almost larger than life setting. I would not expect any competing effort to be released for quite some time. There appears to be no obvious flaws that need correction here with this outstanding live recording… © 2012 Positive Feedback Online Read complete review

CONCERT FOR NEW YORK (A) - MAHLER, G.: Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection” (Gilbert) (NTSC) ACC-20241

Michelle DeYoung’s lustrous Wagnerian instrument makes an undoubted impact in the ‘Urlicht’…Gilbert follows that with a finale of extreme contrasts and genuine passion. No one is likely to feel short-changed by the time we reach the ecstatic close. The band itself contributes a certain pathos and a weight of tone that Chailly cannot muster in Leipzig…Dorothea Röschmann’s heartfelt contribution is another definite plus…The chorus…is determined to give of its best. © 2012 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone website
