Robert Benson, May 2015

MAHLER, G.: Symphonies Nos. 5 and 6 (P. Järvi) (NTSC) 729308
MAHLER, G.: Symphonies Nos. 7 and 8 (P. Järvi) (NTSC) 729508

In the scherzo of Symphony No. 5, Samuel Seidenberg plays the horn solo…and plays it magnificently. I found much to admire in these performances of 5 and 6. There also is much to admire in Symphonies Nos. 7 and 8… Symphony No. 7 is a single take showing the virtuosity of the fine orchestra. The octet of soloists in No. 8 is excellent. Video is excellent throughout, as is audio. © 2015 Read complete review
