Jonathan Nott and the Bamberger Symphoniker have written a special chapter in recording history with this series. Currently nominated in the 2012 BBC Music Magazine Awards, their recording of Mahler Symphony No.3 (TUDOR7170) was a BBC Music Magazine Orchestral Choice; “a recorded spaciousness which lets every ensemble and solo spiritually resound.”

BBC Music Magazine

Nott’s is the latest in a hard-to-choose-from field. Every Bamberg soloist, from the artistic tenor horn solo right at the start, is given room to breathe…This performance may not be quite as incandescent as the same team’s recent Third Symphony, but it’s still well up to the overall standards of Bamberg’s Mahlerian success story.

Gramophone Magazine

We’ve come to expect certain qualities from this Bamberg/Nott Mahler cycle – not least real stylistic awareness and exceptional attention to detail – and this beautifully prepared and acutely well-heard Seventh is no exception. Perhaps Nott’s most notable achievement here lies in uncovering beauty and fascination and a certain sensuousness beneath the often strange and misshapen…One to hear – and superbly engineered, too.

International Record Review

Nott adopts a gradual but far from cautious approach to a first movement that inches forward from its initial pensiveness…no one who hears this account is likely to be disappointed, not least when the Bamberg Symphony’s playing reaffirms its current standing among European orchestras

The Guardian

Nott’s reading has many of the virtues that distinguished the finest of his earlier discs – formal clarity and directness; lean, crisp textures; and a total lack of indulgence. He is at his most impressive in his clear-sighted handling of the long span of the first movement
