    The BSO’s Music Director for seven seasons, Leinsdorf had a long and distinguished career, having worked at the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Opera, Cleveland Orchestra and Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra in addition to his tenure at the BSO. A particular favourite of Leinsdorf’s, the Schumann is powerful and precise under his direction, whilst the Good Friday Music is a warm and sensitive rendition from a great Wagnerian conductor. Schubert’s Ninth Symphony is a new addition to his discography.

    This outstanding performance of Mahler’s Sixth Symphony formed part of Hartmut Haenchen’s Mahler Cycle with the La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra. Haenchen is renowned and respected for his interpretations of Mahler and Wagner and has had a significant presence in many of the world’s leading opera houses. An expressive and dramatic rendition of the Tragische, Haenchen’s high intellect and musical integrity are apparent. The recording also benefits from DTS 5.1 surround sound.
