About the album

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra

Mahler's Titan Symphony is in essence very much like Mahler's later symphonies. It has a classical structure on the whole but the instrumentation is more daring.
Titan is referring to the book with the same name by the German writer Jean Paul.
Many passages of this wonderful symphony are have quite a spiritual atmosphere. The outburst of despair in the fourth part is very deep and severe and touches the heart directly.This is the recording from inaugural concerts of Mr.Manfred Honeck as the Music Director of Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. The disc has enjoyed sensational success first in Japanese market, especially after getting numerous splendid reviews, both for the audio and artistic quality which were achieved after sheer "perfectionist" elaboration by the conductor, musicians and recording crew.
