About

Valery Gergiev follows his critically acclaimed recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 6 with an equally intense performance of the First Symphony.

Gergiev's second LSO Live release was recorded in London during January as part of his ongoing Mahler cycle. Although he has established a formidable reputation as one of the leading interpreters of Mahler's works in concert, these LSO Live releases are the first time that Gergiev has recorded the composer's music.

Concert Reviews:
"a riveting performance of the composer's Symphony No 1 … vital, reckless and thrilling…one of the most exciting things I've heard from the LSO" - Independent on Sunday

"If you like your Mahler visceral, spine-tingling and dangerous, this was for you … the LSO are certainly playing out of their skins for Gergiev" - The Guardian

"the LSO strings could have generated power for a small nation" - The Independent
