REVIEW: Mahler Symphony No. 8

The Christian Review published a list of “Eight Recordings for Christmas” in which they give our Mahler Symphony No. 8 a glowing review:

Mahler 8th Symphony, conducted by Thierry Fischer, Utah Symphony, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and soloists, is exceptional, among the best 8ths I’ve ever heard, and I’ve heard most of them. The soloists are first class, especially the tenor, Barry Banks, meeting all the challenges of the score. One expects the [Mormon Tabernacle Choir] to be great but here they surpass themselves, heaped greatly by the RR engineers. Thierry Fischer has a marvelous feel for Mahler and delivers at every step of the way. The finale is appropriately overwhelming, but few recordings actually pack the kind of punch the composer imagined. Repeated hearings may lead me to say this is the best of all.” (Read the entire review here)

The recording is available now and will make a perfect present for the music lover in your life. Order it through us here.
