When you consider that these recordings were made in the early 1960's the sound that is produced is incredible. Add to that a fine conductor and orchestra, a magnificent pair of performances and the the Decca team under John Culshaw, then the winning combination here is unsurprising.

Solti was at times accused of being hard driven and loud but not so here. With the exception of some brass solos, these are cherished recordings and can be bought with full confidence.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Scriabinmahler TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 24 Nov. 2009
Format: Audio CD
Solti's 1966 recording of Resurrection with LSO is no less powerful and profound than his famous CSO version recorded later. Actually most of explosions throughout the symphony are much fiercer than his later version. This is not the sort of cosmetically refined and artificially calculated Mahler of our time, but Solti's Mahler is as rough and violent as the Alpine nature itself. Only weakness comes at the very end of the climax where tension level drops a little. But I still give 5 stars for this as there are much more inferior recordings of recent years with 5 stars (Rattle, Chailly, Boulez etc ). No doubt one of the great recordings of this symphony along side Walter, Klemperer, Kubelik, Stokowski, Haitink, Levi.

Format: Audio CD
Solti's account of Resurrection Symphony is no dounbt one of the most powerfully moving, along side Klemperer's two recordings. As a great Wagnerian, Solti certainly knows how to achieve most profound dramatic impact in each climax right through to the very end without vulgar exaggeration. Pulsating Rhythmic energy, very emotional singing quality of the strings, and glorious brass, all hallmarks of his artistry are here. Both singers gives deeply heart felt performance, no less passionate than the conductor. The finale is very powerful with each voice of chorus articulated even in quietest moment, giving rich texture and warmth (in most of other recordings you hear mainly upper part feeblly humming), the climax is magnificent and noble without being bombasting. Sumptuously recorded. Coupled with equally very satisfying 1st.
