BBC Music Magazine

Jansons’ line up of Wagnerian soloists for this live Concertgebouw Mahler spectacular is possibly the most impressive since Georg Solti’s classic 1971 recording…If this still doesn’t rise quite to the top of my list of recorded Mahler Eights, it’s partly because Jansons doesn’t ‘do’ impetuous from the outset as Mahler asks.

Financial Times

Jansons conveys a thrilling sense of occasion

Gramophone Magazine

Jansons keeps the music moving and gives himself something to pull back from in the biggest tuttis…And he has a shining Christine Brewer as his first soprano popping those top Bs and Cs above the stave…up there among the select front-runners.

International Record Review

Jansons sets off Mahler’s cosmic clockwork with all-encompassing vision and jewelled precision. Contrapuntal textures never flag or become garrulous in density or over-insistence. The few passages where the music draws breath are shrewdly punctuated as moments of re-charge…a compelling course is steered towards a torrential closing passage.

MusicWeb International

The performance has absolutely no weak links. The choral singing, so crucial in this work, is highly disciplined and excellent…The playing of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is superb throughout…the performance is superbly controlled and though Jansons gives the music its head he keeps a very firm grip on things and also displays tremendous attention to detail

The Telegraph

It immediately takes the lead among interpretations of this phenomenal work…a reading of the score that is both thrilling and telling in its emotional finesse and sincerity…With the Royal Concertgebouw on supreme form, Jansons unequivocally delivers a performance of cosmic impact.
