Iván Fischer Continues Award-Winning Mahler Cycle With Symphony No.9
Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra continue their GRAMMY© nominated (Nos.1 & 6) Mahler cycle with Symphony No.9. In the liner notes, Fischer writes that Mahler's Symphony No.9 is, "a most complex, extremely forward-looking, visionary symphony... [with] the most tragic and beautiful ending Mahler ever composed: what he shares with us is his fading awareness of our beloved world." Whether you think of this work as a eulogy to the end of all things, or as the ultimate exaltation to life and to mortality, this new recording, available on SACD June 9th from Channel Classics, will allow the feeling to resonate deep into your soul. This latest release joins critically acclaimed recordings of Symphonies 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6. Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra kick off a European Tour May 20th in London.
