This was a stupendous performance of one of Mahler's most difficult works. First class in every way. There were a few mis-steps from the trumpets and the beginning was a little rough - the strings sounded ragged and out of sync in the opening bars. But after a few moments, Salonen got them in all line and got some extraordinary playing from the entire orchestra. Salonen assembled a world-class array of soloists: Christine Brewer, Anthony Dean Griffey (subbing for Brandon Jovanovich), Eliza Van Den Heever, Elena Manistina, Nancy Maulstby (subbing for Monica Groop) Stacey Tappan, John Relyea and Alan Held. All were mostly wonderful but I have to note two: Brewer sounded horrible in the first movement but after warming up, sounded glorious with heart-stopping piano notes. Griffey stole the vocal show. I first saw him 10 years ago in Peter Grimes and the voice is consistently sweet and evenly produced but filled with passion and fire. A real treasure. One final note: Stacey Tappan made her appearance in the lights high above the orchestra and soloists. This was a sensational effect as she called upon the penitents to "Look up to find redemption". A fantastic evening.

It was a fabulous performance made all the more so because it wasn't the usual "light fare" you get from all orchestras during the summer. Salonen and the LA Phil are both very dedicated and it is always a pleasure to see them at work.
