Reviews

“This is the finest recording yet of Mahler’s gigantic, problematic Eighth Symphony, and if there has been a greater performance since its 1910 premiere, I’d be surprised. Mariss Janson’s inspired conducting, supported by sensitive sound engineers, achieves a perfect balance between the loud passages, especially in the choral Part 1, and the delicate scoring of Part 2. If you love Mahler, you must have this.” (Michael Kennedy, The Sunday Times, July 2013)

“With the Royal Concertgebouw on supreme form, Jansons unequivocally delivers a performance of cosmic impact [Mahler's Symphony No.8].” (Geoffrey Norris, The Telegraph, July 2013)

“What most impresses is the sound quality… the resonances of Tchaikovsky Fifth Symphony at Teatro Colón will remain in the public’s memory because of the deep expressiveness achieved without sentimental excesses. The soloist in the two concerts was the young Russian pianist Denis Matsuev and he made a revelation of the Rachmaninov, displaying a dazzling interpretative and technical talent and a rich individual developed sound. Matsuev impressed with his freshness, spontaneity and poise that precludes the use of any artifice.” (Lanacion, July 2013)

“The orchestra producing gorgeous kaleidoscopic colours and tonal textures.” Susan Nickalls, (The Scotsman, September 2010)

“The orchestra, with its luscious welter of strings, coloured all of this sensuous score with captivating and near-immaculate brilliance” Kenneth Walton, (The Scotsman September 2010)

“A perfect showcase for such a great ensemble” Andrew Clements, (The Guardian, August 2010)

“As the Concertgebouw burst into the sparring presto conclusion, urgently flicking from major to minor and enlivened by these noisy augmentations, a smile spread round the capacity audience in the Royal Albert Hall.” (The Guardian, September 2009)
