The New England Conservatory Youth Philharmonic under the baton of Benjamin Zander, recorded in one of Europe's most prestigious concert halls.
"I heard a performance of Mahler’s 9th Symphony by New England Conservatory Youth Philharmonic Orchestra. Could Mahler himself have imagined such an engaged, disciplined, and polished performance? Certainly not from the professional orchestras of his day; they struggled with this music. But these kids – I hesitate to call them that because there is a maturity and commitment here that can put many seasoned professionals to shame – these young musicians dig deep into this music, search for meaning and expression with a passion that is the hallmark of the young. In their hands this music sounds fresh, bold, audacious and supremely genuine." ~Chris Hailey
