ATMA presents Mahler’s Symphony No. 10 with the Orchestre Métropolitain under the baton of international superstar conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Made in the exceptional acoustics of La Maison symphonique in Montréal, this marks the first CD recording of Mahler’s Symphony No. 10 by a Canadian orchestra.
When Mahler died, only the first movement of the Symphony No. 10 was completely finished and orchestrated. Musicologist Deryck Cooke subsequently made a performing version of the unfinished draft left by the composer. According to Cooke, had Mahler completed the orchestration, he would have probably made endless changes to the score until he was completely satisfied. Symphony No. 10 remains a masterpiece, a legacy of inestimable value.
