About

Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s new Mahler recording marks a return to the core symphonic repertoire with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Gustav Mahler’s Eighth Symphony was billed as the “Symphony of a Thousand” exploring themes of redemption through the power of love.

The performances with the Philadelphia Orchestra under the baton of its music director Nézet-Séguin in March 2016 marked almost to the day the 100th anniversary of the glorious U.S. premiere by the very same orchestra in 1916, then conducted by Stokowski.

“The experience was sublime, transcendent, all the ultra-superlative things one saves for a piece like this”
 – The Philadelphia Inquirer
