Mahler: Symphony No. 2 (Resurrection) – Oslo PO, Jansons

‘The crisp attack at the start of the opening funeral march sets the pattern for an exceptionally refined and alert reading of the Resurrection Symphony from Jansons and his Oslo Orchestra. During the first four movements, this may seem a lightweight reading, but the extra resilience of rhythm brings out the dance element in Mahler’s Knaben Wunderhorn inspirations rather than ruggedness or rusticity, while at the finale the whole performance erupts in an overwhelming outburst for the vision of Resurrection. That transformation is intensified by the breathtakingly rapt and intense account of the song “Urlicht” which precedes it. In the finale, power goes with precision and meticulous observance of markings, when even Mahler’s surprising diminuendo of the final choral cadence is observed. With the Oslo Choir joined by singers from Jansons’s native Latvia, the choral singing is heartfelt, to crown a version which finds a special place even among the many distinguished readings on a long list.’
