"The performance, and the heartfelt ovation that followed it, signaled the beginning of an historic musical era for the orchestra... With Haitink and the CSO, a great musical partnership has been born." (Chicago Tribune)

The Chicago Sun-Times called the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s performance of Mahler’s Third Symphony under Bernard Haitink "one for the history books." These October 2006 concerts marked Haitink’s first as principal conductor of the CSO and are now available to the world as the debut release from CSO Resound.

About the Artwork:

Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 is accompanied by the artwork entitled “Cycle.” The cyclical motion and flaring crest of the image refer to the magical “Wunderhorn,” a musical motif, as well as the cycle of life and quest for greater understanding. The many unique arrows illustrate individual journeys from naïveté to enlightenment as part of a larger, collective migration. The arrows also capture the robust energy of the CSO under the direction of Bernard Haitink in this recording.
