  •  

    the enthusiasm of the London Symphony Chorus and the CBSO Chorus, who sang as if their lives depended on it.

    Financial Times - Mahler Symphony No. 2 - Royal Festival Hall 17th February 2015
  •  

    ***** the combined London and City of Birmingham Symphony Choruses, superbly trained as ever by Simon Halsey, reinforced that sense of total command, virtuoso musicianship and movingly passionate commitment with which Rattle shaped this unforgettable performance.

    The Times - Mahler Symphony No. 2 - Royal Festival Hall 16th February 2015
  •  

    The combined forces of the London Symphony and CBSO Choruses were stupendous throughout.

    The Guardian - Mahler - Symphony No. 2 - Royal Festival Hall 16th February 2015
  •  

    the combined choruses were sensational, whether in the precise barely-audible ensemble of all those whispered German 'sch' sounds lifting the finale heavenwards or in the glorious peroration that folded the audience into Mahler's pan-religious vision

    Classical Source - Mahler Symphony No. 2 - Royal Festival Hall 16th February 2015
  •  

    singing with both exciting attack and gossamer lightness, the London Symphony Chorus were the true vocal heroes of the evening.

    Daily Telegraph - Schumann  "Das Paradies und die Peri" - Barbican 13th January 2015
