ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One of the interesting features of this performance is that in the infamous "hammer blow" sequence, Somtow used an actual child-sized coffin to receive the blow — and the coffin broke during the third hammer blow.

Regarding the performance of Mahler's epic Sixth Symphony by Somtow and the Siam Philharmonic, Stan Gayuski of the International Mahler Society said, "The opening martial music was arresting and gripped the audience from the first note and one could sense that a performance of high magnitude was about to happen. No disappointment here.

"While the tempi overall was slower than normally performed, that allowed the music to breathe so as to expose detail a quicker tempo may have otherwise obscured.

"Coming in at a total of one hour and 28 minutes must mark one of the most protracted and expanded performance this side of Leonard Bernstein."
