The Budapest Festival Orchestra and Ivan Fischer continue their Mahler cycle with the Symphony No.9. In the liner notes, Fischer writes that Mahler's Symphony No.9 is, ''a most complex, extremely forward-looking, visionary symphony... [with] the most tragic and beautiful ending Mahler ever composed: what he shares with us is his fading awareness of our beloved world.'' Whether you think of this work as a eulogy to the end of all things, or as the ultimate exaltation to life and to mortality, this new recording on SACD from Channel Classics will allow the feeling to resonate deep into your soul.
