Maestro Jansons and his Bavarian forces deliver a Mahler Symphony No.2 that will stay with listeners long after the performance has ended
An unusual rethinking of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece, Eugene Onegin, is presented by the Nederlandse Opera under the knowing leadership of Mariss Jansons. Well recorded, and generally well sung, this performance is undermined by its wayward directorial concepts.
C Major offers a combination documentary on the life and career of storied conductor Mariss Jansons and a live performance of Mahler’s monumental Symphony No. 2. This is music-making at its best, not to be missed.
