Lynn René Bayley
The Art Music Lounge, September 2017

The Fourth Symphony is taken at a fairly fast clip; in fact, Gielen is the only conductor I’ve ever heard who plays the last movement at nearly the same manic pace as Mahler himself on the old Welte-Mignon piano roll, but his way of accenting the music is entirely original. He also has his own way of bringing out the strangeness and menace of the symphony… Christine Whittlesey has exactly the right boy-soprano-like voice, better than many more famous sopranos on Mahler Fourth recordings. © 2017 The Art Music Lounge Read complete review
