Symphony no. 8 by Dmitriĭ Dmitrievich Shostakovich( )

36 editions published between 1982 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shostakovich's grim Eighth Symphony was written in 1943 and premiered by its dedicatee, Evgeny Mravinsky, whose recordings of the work still stand supreme. Now, Mariss Jansons, who as a young conductor was mentored by Mravinsky, leads his Pittsburgh players in a stellar concert performance recorded live. Orchestral execution is first-rate, and Jansons doesn't smooth over or prettify the hourlong work, soaked in the composer's bitterness about the Nazi and Stalinist brutality that stamped his life with fear and loathing. The long opening Adagio, with its brooding strings and pitiless brass eruptions, is shattering, as are the following grotesque Allegretto and the relentlessly powerful third movement. The final two movements maintain the bleak mood, though the finale tries to recover a measure of joy amid the gloom. Jansons and his orchestra sustain this potent work's intensity throughout, confirming the Eighth as one of the composer's most important and fully realized works. The filler is an interesting rehearsal excerpt

Symphony no. 9 by Anton Bruckner( )

17 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bernard Haitink is internationally renowned for his interpretations of Bruckner and is widely recognized as the world's leading Bruckner conductor. Bruckner's symphonies are often described as 'Gothic cathedrals in sound, ' an apt description considering the composer's devout faith and early vocation as an organist. He died before he could finish his Symphony No. 9 but within its three movements can be found some of his most complete music, imbued with a sense of deep solace and resolution
Symphony no. 3 by Gustav Mahler( )

27 editions published between 1966 and 2008 in 8 languages and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Valery Gergiev conducts the composer's powerfully emotional Symphony No Three, framed with a work by one of the Mighty Five; Mily Balakirev's Russia. Often considered to be his most overtly Russian symphony, Rachmaninov makes subtle use throughout the work of a motto theme which can be heard in the finale as a variant of the Dies Irae plainchant; a melodic tag used in Rachmaninov's music as a dark reminder of mortality
Symphony no. 4 by Anton Bruckner( )

17 editions published between 1965 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bernard Haitink is internationally renowned for his interpretations of Bruckner and is widely recognized as the world's leading Bruckner conductor. Bruckner's fourth, nicknamed the Romantic, is performed here by Haitink leading the London Symphony Orchestra

Live recording of Gustav Mahler's Eighth, set down in March 2016 under the baton of Yannick Nézet-Séguin, music director of The Philadelphia Orchestra, marks (almost to the day) the 100th anniversary of its glorious U.S. premiere by the very same orchestra in 1916, then conducted by Leopold Stokowski

Symphony no. 7 by Gustav Mahler( )

18 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mariss Jansons's international reputation as a Mahler conductor is indisputable. During his tenure as chief conductor of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Jansons did not record a full cycle of Mahler symphonies. With this new 2016 recording that project is now nearing completion. Mahler himself led the Concertgebouw Orchestra in the Dutch premiere of the Seventh in October 1909. How must the audience in the Main Hall have reacted to this whimsical work with its night-time atmosphere and eerie sounds? Although this vast symphony, featuring a number of unconventional instruments like the mandolin and guitar, did not catch on right away, it would slowly but surely win the hearts of music lovers everywhere
