Mahler, Symphony No 2 'Resurrection' - Yvonne Kenny, Jard van Nes, London Philharmonic Orchestra & Choir, Klaus Tennstedt.
A live recording that like so many is a record of an event not just a period of time spent in the studio.
Tennstedt by the time this was recorded was suffering with cancer which perhaps influenced his approach to the concert. The tempos are slow but never seem laboured, it seems to me the orchestra are at one with his vision - after all they had played Mahler with this conductor on many previous occasions.
If you are looking for a safe library recording this is not the one to go for, if, like me, you like the idea of recordings that can show different elements and approaches to the interpretation of a work then I consider this indispensible.
If I had a few words to try and describe the performance, tonight they would be - intense, at times dark yet loving.
