Utah Symphony Mahler “Another Stunner”

Audiophilia Magazine's Anthony Kershaw hails the Utah Symphony's Mahler recording as a “stunner”:

“The orchestra sounds good in all departments, with some soloists highlighted to outstanding effect. … Fischer and his musicians are so musical in this potboiler of a symphony -- together, they make the ‘Star Trek’ opening, the minor, inverted ‘Frère Jacques’ funeral tune and the klezmer music sound natural. Others make it sound like film music. … So, a fine execution of a very popular symphony. Fans of the work can purchase with confidence, especially if you want to hear inner details and a more reflective version than many. Fischer and his Salt Lake City gang are not going to erase memories of Berlin, Vienna or the Concertgebouw, but I dare say that those incredible orchestras never had a recording as fine as this. Audiophiles, this is another stunner from Reference Recordings.” —Anthony Kershaw, Audiophilia
