"...this promises to be a triumphant capstone to the entire cycle." -San Francisco Chronicle

"The gratifying wonder of this Mahler Eighth recording is how integrated and tightly wrought it all seems..." " Glossy string tone, amber brasses, and haunting woodwind calls conjure imaginary vistas at once broad and deep."
-Steven Winn, from the San Francisco Classical Voice review of Mahler 8.

Mahler's immense creation—featuring hundreds of musicians, three choruses, and soloists—is a symphony so epic in scope that it has been dubbed the "Symphony of A Thousand." Mahler's Eighth—a tale of damnation and salvation—is quintessentially a romantic work, but it owes a great debt to the towering Baroque choral works of J.S. Bach.
