Product Description

EMI classics celebrates the 150th anniversary of Gustav Mahler with the release of this exclusive 16-CD box set containing the composers complete works.

About the Artist

GUSTAV MAHLER, born on 7th July 1860, was not only a great composer but a fine conductor who influenced his successors in both fields; indeed his appeal to subsequent generations has been extensive and wide -- Zemlinsky, Schönberg, Berg and Webern in Austria, Shostakovitch in Russia, Britten in Britain and Copland in America are just a few to acknowledge their debt. His influence also spread across the so-called boundary between classical and popular music in that Paul McCartney wrote "I have always adored Mahler, and Mahler was a major influence on the music of The Beatles. John and me used to sit and do the Kindertotenlieder and Wunderhorn for hours, we'd take turns singing and playing the piano. We thought Mahler was great." To celebrate his monumental 150th anniversary, EMI Classics releases Mahler's complete works performed by some of the world's most highly lauded performers of the past and present. Works include the rightly famous "Resurrection" symphony recording conducted by Otto Klemperer, a live recording of Symphony No.5 in C sharp minor -- including the famous Adagietto, as well as Sir Simon Rattle's account of the Third Symphony together with the movement Blumine, originally planned for the First Symphony, conducted by Paavo Järvi.
