This recording is perfectly timed for the centenary of Mahler’s 9th Symphony. Jonathan Nott and his Bamberger Symphoniker have added a moving, powerfully expressive interpretation to the extensive discography. By choosing measured tempi for the outer movements, Nott and this totally committed orchestra achieve a fantastic sound.

“There’s space, silence in the twilight zones and unerring inner clarity of the embattled textures, but also just the right amount of impetus towards the movement’s three big collapses. The great Adagio finale, too, delays the most impassioned strains until it really counts. …a fine achievement in a towering symphony.” – BBC Music Magazine, October 2009

”…a remarkably lucid account that gradually builds from a notably spacious first movement to a luminously intense account of the finale. What seems at first to be a well crafted, intelligently musical performance has, by the end, become something much more remarkable.” – The Guardian, 18th February 2010

”Mahler’s last completed symphony is a colossal test of both orchestra and conductor. Here the players pass with flying colours…[Nott’s] aim of bringing out Mahler’s latent modernism by emphasising extremes is good in principle, and often works well.” – The Telegraph, 20th August 2010
