'The symphony must be like the world. It must embrace everything.' This oft-quoted statement by Mahler serves to illustrate his extraordinary artistic ambition and focus. The journey through his symphonies is rich and emotionally charged, imbued as they are with the influences of his surroundings, his suffering as well as his joy, and his unique sense of satire.
These critically acclaimed recordings culminate in the Tenth Symphony completed by Joe Wheeler and the box-set includes detailed notes and sung texts.
