The symphonies of Gustav Mahler require a conductor who is daring enough to explore a wide range of emotion. The Boston Philharmonic's Benjamin Zander is acknowledged as one of the world's leading conductors of Mahler. High Fidelity named his recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 6 as the best classical crossover recording of 2002, his recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 3 was awarded the 2004 Critic's Choice by the German Record Critic's Award Association and his recording of Mahler's 9th Symphony was nominated for a Grammy Award.
