The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the oldest concert orchestra in the world, and their Music Director Riccardo Chailly have already acquired legendary status - glorious reviews and many awards for their recordings testifying to their continuing success. At Leipzig's International Mahler Festival, to mark the centenary of Mahler's death, they performed his monumental Second Symphony in the Gewandhaus - together with two marvellous soloists and choral forces quite beyond compare. About the final movement the composer said:"The increasing tension, working up to the final climax, is so tremendous that I don't know myself, now that it is over, how I ever came to write it."
