magnificent interpretation… © 2015 PS Audio Read complete review

Barnaby Rayfield
Fanfare, November 2014

It is a magnificent performance in every way…Chailly is a likeable, high-minded guide through the treacherous interpretative points of the Fifth Symphony.

Sound is full and detailed…allowing the Leipzigers’ veil of string sound to float naturally. It is utterly sincere and unpretentious without being non-committal or tidy. An essential addition to the vast Mahler discography. © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review

Classical Net, July 2014

The Gewandhaus Orchestra performs with accuracy and total commitment, and the sound reproduction is quite vivid and powerful…The camera work and picture quality are first rate. An excellent release—highest recommendations! © 2014 Classical Net Read complete review

Audiophile Audition, June 2014

This new recording  from February 2013 of the Mahler Symphony No. 5 is a live performance on Blu-ray in stunning audio and pristine video.

This is a performance and recording without peer.

This Mahler Fifth is a must buy for Mahler aficionados who want to see as well as listen to this stirring symphony. The DTS 5.1 sound is a perfect match for this composition, giving us the dynamic range that a good Mahler recording demands. © 2014 Audiophile Audition Read complete review
