DAVID BARKER:
In 2008, I was privileged to hear this orchestra and conductor perform the Mahler 3 in the glorious acoustic of the Salle Pleyel in Paris. It is an experience that I will never forget, and I have been waiting these nine years for their recording of the work. This is not a drama-laden reading of this most sunny of Mahler’s symphonies; Fischer takes a more gentle and genial view. Dan Morgan, in his review, uses adjectives such as delicate and limpid to describe the atmosphere to which I will add ethereal. Like Beatrice Rana’s Goldbergs, this is a performance that provides a glorious and compelling contrast to other loved versions the work you may have.

Mahler Symphony no. 3 in D-minor

Budapest Festival Orchestra

Channels: MultiDXD, Multi, Stereo, StereoDXD

GÖRAN FORSLING:
The great Norwegian mezzo-soprano invites us into a concert venue of the size Mozart would have recognized, with an intimacy where you literally can whisper the songs. The result is enticing and this is now a first recommendation for a single Album with Mozart songs.

DAN MORGAN:
In general, Iván Fischer’s Mahler strikes me as somewhat variable. That said, his compelling take on the Third Symphony could be one of the finest things he’s ever done. His re-evaluation of a familiar and much-loved score won’t please everyone, but I found it both challenging and uniquely rewarding. Channel’s engineering is top-notch, too.

DAN MORGAN:
This has been the year of the DSD/DXD download, and Beyond, a collection of contemporary pieces played by the Los Angeles Percussion Quartet, is one of the most immersive recordings I’ve heard in ages. The passion and commitment of this group is beyond doubt, and Sono Luminus have done them – and the music – proud.

NICK BARNARD:

More of a controversial choice this – personally I find this interpretation of a so familiar symphony to be as convincing as it is revelatory. The Pittsburgh Symphony show themselves to be in inspired and virtuosic form under conductor Manfred Honeck who makes unconventional but inspired interpretative choices. Reference Recordings provide a recording of superb natural clarity and detail.

LESLIE WRIGHT:
This composer-led trilogy of orchestral works with the London Symphony Orchestra only increases one’s appreciation of the creator’s mastery and provides the best case for including Adès among the most important of living composers. As a bonus, the program concludes with Adès’s witty tribute to Brahms with lyrics by Alfred Brendel.
