Mahler Symphonies Favorite Recordings - Page 18

post #256 of 3714
Thread Starter 
Sorry I never listen to Mahler song cycles.........so no comment.

Waiting for your new Mahler symphony purchases. If you have to have the EMI GROTC versions there are three Mahler symphonies I know of......but may be more now since they keep expanding this series:

Klemperer/EMI - Mahler 2
Barbirolli/EMI - Mahler 5
Barbirolli/EMI - Mahler 9 (1CD version)

Of course I have all three already

Two on the way will complete my cycle......finally.

1. Kubelik
2. Klemperer
3. Lopez-Cobos
4. Inbal and Szell (really love both recordings, each wonderful in their own way. The sopranos are quite different.
5. Saraste - After a month or two wait, Arkivmusic finally tracked down a copy for me and it's on its way.
6. Barbirolli
7. Gielen (being shipped at this time)
8. Sir Colin Davis
9. Bernstein's with the Berlin and Lopez-Cobos
10. Lopez-Cobos (The Mazzetti version)
Das Lied Von der Erde: Oue Perhaps not the greatest interpretation, but, like all of these Reference Recordings, absolutely fantastic sonics. A fine interpretation from my limited knowledge nonetheless and I really enjoy Michelle DeYoung's voice. Not as well known as many others, but just captures me every time.

I really haven't purchased much classical in last 2-3 years, instead been heavy buyer of dark metal (as you can tell by "darkest desires pt 1,2,3" threads).

Also as you see I really like Mahler 1,2,4,5 symphonies.

I'll be ordering the SACD of the Mahler 4th by Michael Tilson Thomas and the SFS. This thread is not really about SACD since that opens up a whole new angle, but I'll post some impressions once I've got it.

I'm itching to get some classical SACDs, let us know how you like it.

BTW I am LOVING that Baker CD from EMI, EMI Great Recrodings of the Century CDs are simply wonderful, the sound is always great on them.

I've also got the MTT/SFSO Mahler 4 SACD coming, along with the new Zander Mahler 3 SACD from Telarc. Should be an interesting week of listening.

Now, people in Ohio or neighboring states know who to hit up if they want to listen to a particular version of any of Mahler's symphonies, excepting No. 8.

To my surprise, I got the Zander Mahler 3 yesterday (since it's released today, I guess that shouldn't be too surprising), and had a chance to listen to various parts of it only in SACD multichannel. The performance is highly characterized and detailed --- for example, the third movement's opening sounds the most birdlike I've ever heard, sounding like a bunch of birds got together and started chattering it up. The last movement, one of my favorite movements in Mahler's work, is slow, but very affecting, though for my tastes, its buildup to its finale is not quite as awesome as Salonen's. A real valved posthorn is used, but I haven't heard it yet. The trombone solo in the first movement is awesomely powerful. Interestingly, the children's choir in multichannel comes from the surround speakers! Zander claims that he did this because Mahler originally wanted the children above, and behind.

The sound is good, but it's clear that the hall is somewhat dry. It has very good dynamics, but I worry that it may be a bit shouty in two-channel.
