"For Mahler," Sir Simon Rattle has said, "the symphony is where you can tell the most important truths." The composer's works have been crucial to his career - indeed, it was the epic Symphony No. 2 that first inspired him to become a musician. Spanning nearly two decades, these recordings of the complete symphonies, including Deryck Cooke's completion of No. 10, were made with the two ensembles most closely identified with Rattle's name: the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the Berliner Philharmoniker.
Recorded between 1986 and 2007.
"There's no doubt that Rattle has inspired all concerned to an achievement which joins his groundbreaking readings of the Third, Seventh and Tenth Symphonies in the Mahlerian heaven." ***** BBC Music Magazine, May 2005, on Mahler 8
