Boulez - Mahler: Symphony No. 8 (2 CDs)

Item #: 509031

Quick Overview

Legendary conductor Pierre Boulez brings his acclaimed Mahler symphonies cycle to a spectacular conclusion with this new recording of the monumental Symphony No. 8. Boulez teams up with Barenboim's Staatskapelle Berlin, the Berlin State Opera and Radio Choruses, as well as a strong cast of soloists including Michelle DeYoung, Johan Botha and Twyla Robinson to deliver his long- awaited reading of what is arguably one of Mahler's biggest and most impressive scores, also known as "Symphony of a Thousand" due to the large number of musicians needed to perform the piece.

This release crowns a more-than-decade-long project involving all the symphonies and major orchestral works of Gustav Mahler--a project that is both of highest personal value to Maestro Boulez and an important document of Mahler interpretation.
