Daniele Gatti, conductor
Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest

Recorded Live at Concertgebouw Amsterdam on 10/11 January and 9/11 May 2018

Daniele Gatti and the Concertgebouworkest are presenting an unconventional and thought-provoking approach to Mahler’s First Symphony. At the premiere in 1889, the audience was ill-prepared for Mahler’s bold orchestration, but the symphony gradually gained in popularity. The Concertgebouw Orchestra, conducted by the composer himself, gave the Dutch premiere in 1903. Mahler was absolutely delighted, exclaiming, ‘The musical culture in this country is stupendous! The way the people can just listen!’ This luxurious edition in book form is available in a limited edition.

Press quotes

'Gatti’s perfectionism gives audience a memorable Mahler'
- Mischa Spel, NRC

'Gatti and the RCO coloured Mahler's complex score with masculine lust, touches of theatrical tragedy and an excess of imaginative, predominantly earth-oriented joy.'
- Wenneke Savenije, De Nieuwe Muze

'In Gatti’s compelling narrative the music got a timeless dimension'
- Joost Galema, NRC
