The Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra's recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 6 - the Brattle Media label's inaugural release - is listed alongside some of the world's greatest classical artists by renowned Tribune critic John von Rhein.

 “Rather than flatly declaring them to be the year’s best classical recordings, I have selected 10 compact discs and boxed sets issued in 2017 to which I returned repeatedly, each time with renewed pleasure. May they also warm your musical holidays and the months thereafter”
