Hi,

How did you like Nanut's version of the 1st mov. of the 5th?

Nanut's version was my first encounter with the 5th., it has a not-so-good SQ (even dough it's recorded quite recently - I'm guessing because of the DDD recording process), but the 1st. movement is great: lots of energy, dynamics, great control (and I DO realise it's an funeral march )

I've got the Newmann's version afterwards, and the first movement was rather lazy (that would be the best word to describe it)...

Anybody else heard the Nanut's version? How would you rate it?

Cheers...
I'm loving it. The soundquality isn't so good, like you said, there seems to be some tape noise in the background. But the music is absolutely fantastic. So much energy, emotional tragic and dynamics. I think wouldn't like a more lifeless version too. But I now want to hear the whole thing. Any recommendations on a very dynamic 5th?

Well, I only have those two versions of the 5th., and I think both are nice in there own way...

I think you should go for the Nanut's version if you can stand the SQ, besides, it's dirt cheap .

If not, Newmann's version is a little slower, but SQ is better - thats where all my expirience with the 5th ends, maybe some of the maler-holics around here can give you more info?

Cheers...

Try the Bernstein version on DG.

Or maybe the Barshai version on Brilliant Classics as it is cheaper.

1893 Edition of M1

Here is a review of the Hamar reading of the 1893 edition of the M1. A David Horowitz review, for those who like him or don't. Only other one I have with the Blumine is the Ozawa, haven't spent a lit of time with that one (and the Blumine for that was recorded later than the rest of the CD).

Scott

PS I have yet to see any place online selling this version from a label Hungary.

Scott,

Now, are you going to spring for it or not?

Wait, this is headfi, website of the open wallet! If not you, then someone else is surely going to spring for it!

Going to have to be some other daring soul for now. But we all know how hard it is to get people to buy new recordings here!

I didn't get that Mahler, but I did pick up the Fritz Reiner/CSO M4 for the Lisa Della Casa vocals. It's actually a great recording of the 4th, and Della Casa, as usual, delivers the goods.

I've ordered it I will explain to my wife that this is the original version so I don't have it already. I think I might stop when I've reached twenty Mahler Ones!

Two more 3's in the queue - both on SACD: Zander (based on Mark from HFR's recommendation) is on order, and MTT (since I really like 1 and 9 from him), just arrived. I've listened to the MTT and was really impressed - especially with movement one. The mezzo is not my favorite, but still nice. Will report on further listening.

Doc,

Can't wait to hear what you think of the Zander 3. How is the MTT 9? If I ever find time to finish thw two reviews I'm working on this week, I'm diving into that next.
