More info & reviews:


Gustav Mahler (7 July 1860 – 18 May 1911) was an Austrian late-Romantic composer, and one of the leading conductors of his generation. As a composer he acted as a bridge between the 19th century Austro-German tradition and the modernism of the early 20th century. In his lifetime his status as a conductor was established beyond question, but his own music gained wide popularity only after periods of neglect. After 1945, Mahler became one of the most frequently performed and recorded of all composers. Mahler's œuvre is relatively small. Aside from early works, most of his are very large-scale works, designed for large orchestral forces, symphonic choruses and operatic soloists.


Thomas Hengelbrock (born 9 June 1958 in Wilhelmshaven) is a German violinist, musicologist, stage director and conductor. He studied the violin with Rainer Kussmaul and worked as an assistant to Witold Lutosławski, Mauricio Kagel and Antal Doráti. In 1985 he cofounded the Freiburger Barockorchester. He is the founder and director of the Balthasar-Neumann-Chor (1991) and the Balthasar-Neumann-Ensemble (1996). He was the conductor of the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen (1995-1999), and musical director of the Volksoper Wien (2000-2003). Since 2011, he has been the principal conductor of the NDR Symphony Orchestra.

  2. Dear Ronald Do, I have tried repeatedly to download Engelbrock's cd which seemed to have worked right but when I tried to burn the cd, only track two and track five were present. Has any one mentioned the same problem? Thank you in advance for yoour answer.

    1. I have never burnt FLAC files to CD before, so I don't know for sure. You could try to shorten their track titles. As you can see, those files have very long track titles, so I guess that's the problem.

  3. Dear Ronald Do, Thanks a lot for the tip. I did what you suggested and it worked splendidly.Thanks again and keep up the good work.
