The MahlerFest concert of the glorious eighth symphony last January resulted in a fine all-digital recording, now available in a two-CD set. FANFARE and American Record Guide Nov-Dec issues contain detailed reviews. Suffice it to paraphrase FANFARE: "The three legendary live performances, Stokowski, Horenstein, Bernstein, are about to be joined by a fourth -- Robert Olson and the Colorado MahlerFest. This is one of the greatest perfomances I have ever heard. ... There are not many Mahler recordings I consider essential, this is one of them. Highest recommendation." Mahler experts have also praised the performance, Olson's reading, and the recording.
