Mahler 10 CD

$22 Buy

Conductor: Osmo Vänskä
Minnesota Orchestra

Release: 2020

Repertoire: Mahler Symphony No. 10 (ed. Cooke)

Mahler’s Tenth Symphony, left unfinished at his death but subsequently completed in a performance version by Deryck Cooke, follows the composer’s philosophy that a symphony “must embrace everything”—from anguish to exuberance and serenity. Music Director Osmo Vänskä leads the Minnesota Orchestra through this epic symphony, recorded at Orchestra Hall in June 2019 as part of the Orchestra’s exploration of all ten Mahler symphonies.

An autobiographical work of extraordinary turmoil and beauty, the Tenth Symphony includes a wide-ranging Adagio that builds to a nightmarish dissonance, a brief “Purgatorio” composed after Mahler discovered his wife Alma’s affair, and a tender finale that shows the composer’s undimmed love for Alma.
