5.0 out of 5 stars graham mahler cole 21 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
gustav Mahler is well known for composing long symphonies (9 in all,the 10th lay unfinished.) here we have 9 adagios in superb interpretations. Throw away those "chillout" albums and just listen to this. even if youre not keen on classical music, it will send you into a new plane of happiness. the 10th symphony was "reconstructed" by a few interpreters and is also worth buying on its own. if you want to relax in front of a warm fire in winter or chillout in your garden these will do the trick. buy it and chill until you have goosepimples!!!!

This album puts virtually all of Mahler's Adagios together in one package and, furthermore, excellent recordings by top orchestras and conductors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mahler Adagios - Sublime! 20 Feb 2011
By Grady Harp - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Though many of us may be hesitant to admit it, there are moments when hearing simply the slow movements of symphonies is what we long for meditation and transcendence. Fortunately with this year being the Centennial of Mahler's death (18 May 1911) (or as EMI has emphasized for this 2010 release this is the 150th Anniversary of Mahler's birth!) EMI has created a major collection of the complete works of Mahler in one box set as well as individual packages such as this 2 disc CD set. Here are all of the slow movements from all ten Mahler symphonies, each performed by different conductors and orchestras. Now it is indeed possible to put these discs in and sit back and luxuriate in these emotionally satisfying works.

In the order of placement for this collection (a very sensitive curatorial decision) the included movements are as follow:
Symphony No. 3, 6th movement 'Langsam, Ruhevoll, Emfunden' with Klaus Tennstedt conducting the London Philharmonic Orchestra
Symphony No. 4, 3rd movement 'Ruhevoll' with Paul Kletski conducting the Philharmonia Orchestra
Symphony No. 5, 4th movement 'Adagietto. Sehr langsam' with Sir John Barbirolli conducting the New Philharmonia Orchestra
Symphony No. 9, 4th movement 'Adagio, Sehr langsam und noch zuruckhaltend' with Otto Klemperer and the New Philharmonia Orchestra
Symphony No. 1, 3rd movement 'Feirerlich un gemessen, ohne zu schleppen' with Carlo Maria Giulini conducting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Symphony No. 2, 2nd movement 'Andante moderato' with Otto Klemperer and the Philharmonia Orchestra
Symphony No. 6, 2nd movement 'Andante moderato' with Sir John Barbirolli and the New Philharmonia Orchestra
Symphony No. 7, 4th movement ' Nachtmusik -Andante amoroso' with Klaus Tennstedt conducting the London Philharmonic Orchestra
Symphony No. 10, 1st movement 'Adagio' with Sir Simon Rattle conducting the Berlin Philharmonic

There really isn't a weak link among these performances, even though they were drawn solely form the EMI catalogue. The sound is magnificent and that secret dream of being immersed in just the slow movements of Mahler in one recording is now an accessible reality. Very very satisfying ... and indulgent! Grady Harp, February 11
5.0 out of 5 stars The "Lover-Boy" of Angst!! (L.O.L.) 23 Mar 2014
By NUC MED TECH - Published on

03-22-2014 In keeping with the uncontrollable urge to pick up a buck, record companies think they can present part-symphonies for money, due to the wildly popular slow movements from Romantic compositions, like the 9 Mahler Symphonies. Releasing only pieces of an entire Symphony certainly is pleasant, and very beautiful way to enjoy some of the most emotionally appealing music of the past Century and the early 21st, as well. But, and this is a big BUT----these clips do not---DO NOT replace the entire work. To understand Mahler and his language, one needs tyo hear the entire Symphony, with all the different and contrasting movements. Enough said, still I do love this 2 CD set from EMI, but I seldom play it because I want to continue to learn the composer's whole self, and for that, I need to listen to the complete work. However, some comments on this release are warranted.
EMI put this set togather in 2010 and I imagine it has sold well, due to the millions of global Mahlerites out there, both casual and rabid--like me! Some of the better and even best renditions can be found on this recording, and here are samples of just that.
For starters, Tennstedt leads the London Phil in the Symphony #3's Adagio--a Langsam of breath taking beauty running for 20:41, although I've heard better. A bit later in this review I'll give you MY choices, compared to the one's from EMI. I am totally unfamiliar with Paul Kletski, so I can't say yes or no to his contribution, but I do know some of the others, and here they are:


Noticeably absent from this "best of" list, both mine and EMI's are Solti, Bernstein, and Horenstein, with only minor contributions from Walter, Giulini and Rattle. But, I think they're better in the fast movements and have difficulty, perhaps sustaining tension and beauty in these long, rambling Adagios, but they are not poorly done, just not quite as good as those who did make the list. Anyhow, this is a fun and curious project and I might like to see a comparable litany done with Bruckner, Beethoven and maybe Dvorak, Sibelius and Tchaikovsky. At any rate, this is a good buy and at, currently, low price, but DO NOT avoid the entire works or you will be missing out on some terrific material, and as always my friends, best wishes and God bless you all, with much pleasing and happy listening, Tony.
