Mahler’s Last Optimistic Symphony

The Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal and its Music Director Rafael Payare make their NativeDSD debut on the Pentatone label with Mahler’s 5th Symphony. The album is also the first recording under Payare’s tenure. It begins a longer recording relationship with the Pentatone label.

For Payare, the Fifth is the last symphony that shows Mahler still looking forward to what the future might bring, unlike his subsequent, much darker and existential works. Despite that optimism, there is enough tragedy and struggle along the way, resonating with Mahler’s life at the time of creation. Payare’s proficiency in late-Romantic repertoire coupled with the matured, distinctive sound of the Montréal players make this a collaboration to look out for.

NativeDSD Senior Reviewer Bill Dodd calls the album “An Outstanding Mahler 5th!”
