"You may be surprised by Thomas Dausgaard's force and conviction as a Mahlerian. This exceptional issue from the Pacific Northwest ought to be a game-changer for all concerned. This is a very impressive Mahler Tenth. Playing is of the highest order throughout, but, as is crucial in this work, Dausgaard's vision is both compelling and beautifully conveyed." Gramophone Award Nomination 2017 - Orchestral
"What a fabulous string section this orchestra has - violins absolutely fearless in Mahler's exposed high lines, cellos and basses like rich velvet. They're totally in sympathy with Dausgaard's very human take on the work. The first movement's screaming discord is terrifying, but what lingers is how this conductor leads us out of the shadows." MusicWeb
"Here, by an exceptional command of long-term tempo relationships Dausgaard manages to unify the symphony into single whole. Without loss of intensity, it emerges as not only a psychological document but an orchestral classic - fully realised by the Seattle Symphony, long an adventurous outfit but here sounding like one of the world's great orchestras" BBC Music
