Album information

Benjamin Zander conducts Mahler's hugely popular 'Resurrection' Symphony; exceptionally challenging and thrillingly powerful it is the perfect showcase for Zander's distinctive balance of insightful musicianship and emotional intensity.

A GRAMMY-nominated conductor, Zander has established an impressive reputation as arguably the most devoted Mahlerian of today, having previously released seven of the nine symphonies to critical acclaim.  Together with the Philharmonia Orchestra Zander's recordings of Mahler symphonies have inspired critics worldwide to use superlatives such as 'revelatory', 'exhilarating', 'illuminating' and 'remarkable'.

The featured soloists are Sarah Connolly, one of the foremost British mezzo-sopranos who has impressed at La Scala and Glyndebourne, and Swedish soprano Miah Persson, who is in great demand with the major opera houses including Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Metropolitan Opera New York. 

This recording was nominated at the 57th GRAMMY Awards, whilst further commendations for his Mahler Symphonies include: nominated for a GRAMMY Award in the category of Best Orchestral Performance (Ninth Symphony), named a 'Top 10 Recording of 2001' by the New York Times and The Sunday Times (Fourth and Fifth Symphonies respectively), named a 'Recording of the Year' by Boston Globe, The Sunday Times, and Fanfare Magazine (Sixth Symphony).
