Jonathan Nott continues his very successful Mahler series with Symphony No.2. The soloists are Anne Schwanewilms soprano and Lioba Braun contralto. BBC Music Magazine described Nott’s recording of Mahler’s Symphony No.9 as “a fine achievement in a towering symphony.”

BBC Music Magazine

Jonathan Nott [reaches] new peaks in his Bamberg cycle…What uplift, rather than crushing weight, in those opening lower-string flourishes…The consoling vision just gets more magical on each reappearance…I doubt if anyone has brought more luminous colours to the soprano’s assurance than Anne Schwanewilms

Gramophone Magazine

Nott opts for lucidity rather than histrionics or high seriousness in a steady reading of the epic funeral march that never feels as if he is merely going through the motions…Both [the Andante moderato and the Scherzo] are minutely observed

The Guardian

[Nott] favours precision, definition and forward momentum over barnstorming tonal weight and dramatic power, and as the symphony presses on, the detail he and his excellent orchestra reveal is remarkable…Anne Schwanewilms adds a touch of vocal luxury to the finale
