Format: Audio CD
This ought to be a world-beater but it isn't. The Philips engineers have captured the superb playing of the Concertgebouw Orchestra to perfection and every detail of Mahler's score is revealed. The fly in the technical ointment is that James King's microphone is over-amplified, and so his singing is almost painfully "in your face", detracting from an otherwise fine performance. Mercifully Janet Baker does not get that treatment, except momentarily in "Der Einsame", and she is at her best, bringing passion to "Von der Jugend" and exquisite sensitivity to "Der Abschied".

Yet the whole thing fails to convince. There is a certain lack of tension, perhaps best exemplified in the final movement, where the ominous darkness does not descend as it should (Tennstedt is superb in that respect). Maybe the fault lies within me, but I have found Haitink's Mahler to be restrained, even understated in some of the symphonies, and I must conclude that this is another example.

This disc is worth having, but for something really convincing, go to Kubelik (also with Janet Baker), Tennstedt or best of all, Klemperer with Fritz Wunderlich and Christa Ludwig. Or if you can stand a third-rate recording, Bruno Walter with Kathleen Ferrier.

Audiophiles should be aware that this is actually the Australian Decca Eloquence version (poor sound) and not the Philips version (much better sound), as it is wrongly displayed by Amazon in the cover picture.

Here you can purchase the actual Philips version:
Mahler: Symphony No.9/Das Lied von der Erde
