Description

The Utah Symphony is one of America's major symphony orchestras and a leading cultural organization in the Intermountain West. It is recognized internationally for its distinctive performances, commitment to music education programs, history and recording legacy. Maestro Thierry Fischer conducts as they join with the internationally-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir, to present a thrilling and authoritative interpretation of the immense Mahler Symphony No. 8, "Symphony of a Thousand." This new release was recorded live in February 2016, from concerts in the Salt Lake Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, Utah, sponsored by the O.C. Tanner Gift of Music.

Thierry Fischer, Music Director of the Utah Symphony since 2009, has revitalized the orchestra with creative programming and critically acclaimed performances that have drawn consistently full houses. Highlights of his tenure include complete symphony cycles of Mahler in commemoration of former Utah Symphony Music Director, Maurice Abravanel, complete Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Nielsen cycles, a multi-season Stravinsky and Haydn symphony cycle and tours of Utah's five national parks, state parks and national monuments in 2014 and 2017. Maestro Fischer has also initiated a major commissioning program in Utah that has produced new works by Simon Holt and Michael Jarrell, and works by Nico Muhly, Andrew Norman, and Augusta Read Thomas which are on Utah Symphony's previous album Dawn to Dust.

“The orchestra have never sounded better, with a notably fine wind choir. Soundmirror, responsible for recording and post‑production under Reference Recordings’ aegis, have captured the famous acoustic of the Mormon Tabernacle with remarkable skill.”
