Mahler Symphonies Favorite Recordings - Page 50

post #736 of 3714
Scotty,

I saw Barbara Bonney sing MTT's Emily Dickinson Songs (in English) and although she sounded wonderful, I couldn't understand a word that she sang! Of course, if she's singing in German, I couldn't understand a word anyway so it's not a problem with Mahler. Both of the recordings sound very interesting, especially the first.

Btw, if the gouge is in the plastic coating on the music side and the information layer is still intact then you may be able to use one of those disc restore products. If on the other hand, the gouge is on the label side and there is a clear spot where the coating has been scraped off (you can actually see light through the disc when you hold it over your eye), it's kaput. (sorry )

Yes, I have tried the ole Skip Dr on it to no avail, I don't think it's through to the data layer, but fairly deel through the plastic. Bleh, I really like that CD too. I have yet to hear Janet Baker do a Mahler song I didn't like. She handles the music extremely well!

I have the Szell/Fischer-Dieskau on the Des Knaben Wunderhorn as well.

Another of the "Great Recordings of the Twentiel Century" series.

I have the Szell Fischer-Dieskau, too and two of the same recording of Fischer-Dieskau doing the Lieder eines gefahrenden Gesellen with Kubelik (bundled on vinyl with the M5 and on CD with the M1). I am thinking of getting this as well:


The temptation is Leonard Bernstein on piano, in accompaniment.

Tickets in hand...

...for M2, performed by the Utah Symphony under Keith Lockhart. May 7th. My first live M2.

The Utah Symphony was one of the first to record Mahler, so there is a historical connection here as well. I can't wait!

Anyone who is a fan of the latest cycle by Chailly should know London Decca is releasing a boxed set of all 10 Symponies in May, someone mentioned this on the Mahler mailing list. No word on price.

Have you heard anything about the format? I have both the M3 and the M9 in SACD Hybrid. Perhaps they will be remastering the older offerings.

From the looks of it, a CD release. Been digging around on the Decca site looking for more info. Those M3 and M9 SACDs are delight, though I haven't listened to the multichannel yet.

Listened to Mahler 9/Karajan on my new Apogee Mini-DAC and I was floored. Wow.

When I get my Zu Mobius back from being XLR'd, I anticipate God and Karajan to appear to me in a vision while listening to Mahler 9 and saying, " Enjoy your new DAC".

Q: What's the difference between God and Karajan?

A: God does not think he is Karajan.

If god were mortal he would be Karajan............

Mahlerites do not rest on your laurels and become intoxicated with the scent of lotus petals......there is much work to be done for those who would seek the essence of Mahler.

I have ordered some other Testament and BBC Lengends label hard to find Mahler work which I will report on in due time.

I went to see M1 performed at the BSO last night, wondeful. First movement started a but slow for my tastes, but man they hit the high points really well! Something to see this performed live.

Hmmm M8 by Levine in July...may have to see that!

Just picked up the Brilliant Classics boxed set on Ebay for $19. This one has the famous Horenstein 3rd and also some relatively obscure, but well-reviewed other ones (Haenchen and Neumann). Anybody else have this set? What are your reactions?

Don't have this but have read that it is a one trick pony set......you are buying it for Horenstein 3rd, remaining performances are just average. But for $19 you get perhaps best performance of 3rd available so not bad deal.

The Inbal/Brilliant Classics set is of higher "overall" quality performance wise taken as a whole, but does not have a standout true reference performance like Horenstein 3rd......also costs a bit more.
