On 23 October 1904, Gustav Mahler himself conducted the Concertgebouw Orchestra in his Fourth Symphony. The work was given twice during the concert, once before and once after the break! Since 1939 all chief conductors of the Concertgebouw Orchestra have made sound recordings of this cornerstone in the RCO repertoire. After Mahler's Second (RCO 17003), the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Daniele Gatti present the SACD edition of this beloved Fourth Symphony. This luxurious edition in book form is available in a limited edition.
"a refreshing Mahler"
- Guido van Oorschot, Volkskrant
"The buildup and level of detail were once again wonderfully Gattian."
- Peter van der Lint, Trouw
"the sheer sound of the orchestra in the Ruhevoll is so beautiful it makes you cry"
- Mischa Spel, NRC
