Mahler Symphony No. 8 (2017)

The Utah Symphony is joined by the internationally-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Choristers of The Madeleine Choir School to present a thrilling and authoritative interpretation of the immense Mahler Symphony No. 8, “Symphony of a Thousand.” This new release from Reference Recordings, conducted by Thierry Fischer, 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. This organization was founded over 30 years ago through the combined vision of Obert C. Tanner and Gordon B. Hinckley, to share performances of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Utah Symphony, as a gift to the community. The Utah Symphony thanks their 75th Anniversary Signature Sponsor, the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation, and Kem and Carolyn Gardner, their 75th Anniversary Mahler Cycle Sponsors, and Jack Wheatley, their Recording Sponsor, for making this recording possible.
