Mahler's Second Symphony, Resurrection (1894) is a gigantic work of enormous proportions, extreme contrasts, and a score that surpasses even his First Symphony from two years earlier. Ten horns, eight trumpets, two harps, an organ, five percussionists, two vocal soloists (soprano and alto), as well as a large mixed chorus, fill the podium. And behind all this, invisible, is a 'Fernorchester' (distant orchestra) as a symbol of 'the resurrection'. Dealing with the themes of life, death, and resurrection, this is quite simply one of the most ambitious and most important orchestral works of the late Romantic period. In typical fashion, The Budapest Festival Orchestra, led by Ivan Fischer and featuring renowned vocal soloists Lisa Milne and Birgit Remmert, pulls off Mahler’s epic work brilliantly, making for what very well might be the definitive recording of this masterpiece.
