Summary
"Mahler's Eighth symphony is arguably the grandest and most ambitious piece of symphonic music ever written. The composer himself regarded it as his opus summum. At Leipzig's International Mahler Festival, Riccardo Chailly commanded almost 500 musicians, and the overwhelming result of their joint effort inspired the Leipzig-based and internationally renowned artist Neo Rauch to the painting for the cover of this Blu-ray."--Container
