CD review: Mahler 8 conducted by Tennstedt

The new release from the archive of the London Philharmonic Orchestra performing Mahler’s ‘Symphony of a Thousand’ under conductor Klaus Tennstedt received a 5 star review in The Guardian.

Reviewer Andrew Clements wrote:
“From the first moments of the opening Veni Creator Spiritus hymn, to the final orchestral outburst that follows the thunderous return of the Chorus Mysticus in the second part, Tennstedt maintains the performance on a knife-edge of excitement”
