Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra have just been awarded Gramophone’s Recording of the Month for their brand new Mahler: Symphony No. 7.
“Here and everywhere it’s a performance full of first-time wonder. (…) It’s one of those performances that makes one think of the piece differently, and that in itself is cause for celebration and reassessment.”
“(…) there is a joyousness about this account that tells you not just how much Ivan Fischer loves this symphony but how he loves it unconditionally.”
