In the 1970's Bernard Haitink expressed his exasperation with the " Tyranny of the Complete Cycle", whereby record companies and promoters insisted upon these cycles irrespective of whether the conductor had an affinity with each of the works in the cycle-he was in particular referring in his own case to his reluctance to perform and record Mahler's Eight Symphony.
The result is that I struggle to think of a complete Mahler set where I unreservedly enjoy all the symphonies-not Tennstedt, not Boulez, not Abbado, certainly NOT Haitink and not even Bernstein. This is but a handful that I could choose, but the set that comes nearest to all out enthusiasm is the set recorded in the 1980's by Lorin Maazel and the incomparable Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the only complete set to feature this greatest of all Mahler orchestras.
It is a controversial set in many ways-Maazel as ever follows no "standard practice" and has studied the works afresh; delivering exquisitely played and recorded performances -which many find too idiosyncratic to bear!
His penchant for broad tempi and sense of great architecture at the expense of quirkiness does not strike a chord with all listeners-but I love it with my only reservations being in the Eighth (as usual!).

Almost 30 years later, Maazel returned to these monumental works in a concert cycle in London 2011, two of which concerts I was privileged to attend. The whole cycle has been recorded live by Signum and will be released in segments throughout the coming year.

The first instalment of Maazel 2011 Mahler cycle at Royal Festival Hall has been recently released at a very bargain price.

In my opinion all the three first Mahler's symphonies here featured are outstanding both as performances and recorded sound.
The Philharmonia is terrific in returning us and completely disclosing every details of each work.

This is not a Mahler like Bernstein's, indeed.. it's Maazel, and ... he's truly at his best.

He gives here very analytical readings.
He is never bombastic, his timings and his overall vision of each work barely differ from his previous monumental New York cycle recorded between 2003 and 2009.
Maazel confirms here his complete control of the scores (even more than one could say about Boulez..) and overall his reading is broad and meditative

In the past Maazel was not totally convincing in Mahler, however I never found it bad.
On the contrary there were few cycles so perfectly controlled and well performed and refined like his Wiener Philharmoniker's.

Indeed - since I listened to it - WP cycle has never stopped me being impressed by its detailed and reflective renderings though I admit sometimes his slowness seemed a little overburdened (in M3, M7 and M8 above all).

However - while I'm not able to read the scores - I constantly perceived Maazel returned in Vienna many details I never realized completely before.

Now I see Maazel remains coherent with his lifelong view of these masterworks he has returned many times since 50 years.

There is no radical change in comparison with his previous renderings.

Superb playing by the Philharmonia Orchestra under the baton of the most revered Mahlarian Lorin Maazel. Fantastic recording - a treasure to own!
