Mahler: Symphony No.9

'There’s individuality and beauty of sound here from the start, allowing the valedictory pathos of Mahler’s uncrushable procession in the vast opening movement space to breathe; Chung favours a slower than average basic tempo, but it’s full of life between the lines, and there’s no faking the tenderness embedded in the phrases, beautifully done by the Seoul strings.'
