ArtistsLondon Symphony Orchestra
Mahler wrote his Ninth Symphony during a time of great personal suffering and heartache. This is reflected in the music, at times manic and fierce, at others delicate and serene, as it explores many emotions and ultimately concludes with the heart-stopping coda of the Adagio, seemingly conveying the composerís acceptance of his own mortality.
DSD recording, live at the Barbican 2-3 March 2011.
ďfrom the rosy vein struck by the strings to the honed gestures of the woodwind, here was an orchestra at one with itself and its DirectorĒ - The Guardian
ďGergievís reading was both valid and deeply moving. Finally all tears were wiped away, all coughing silenced, in a breathless,peerlessly executed coda [Adagio]Ē - Evening Standard
ďThereís nothing on the classical circuit that quite compares to the full Valery Gergiev experience. Gergievís pacing of the Adagio ... felt absolutely right. And the LSO fiddles played majestically for himĒ - The Times
