About

Ever since its triumphal premiere on 12 September 1910 in Munich, Mahler’s Eighth Symphony in E flat major has had the reputation of being, along with Arnold Schoenberg’s Gurrelieder, the piece in the whole of the symphonic repertoire calling for the largest number of participants.

This new recording has a number of musicians much less than the average, but Gabriel Feltz sees it more like a great chance. He used flanking positions for the choir in relation to the orchestra and larger parts of the choirs were facing each other, which gives, especially in the first part, a stereophonic effect.

For Feltz these performances of Mahler’s Eighth Symphony on 3 and 4 July 2018 were especially successful and fulfilling moments in his life as a musician.

Live recording, 3 & 4 July 2018, Konzerthaus, Dortmund
