It is now 32 since I first purchased Kubelik's recording of Mahler's 1st Symphony and after a very long gap (and having listened to many other fine recordings of this work) I am listening to it again.

It has always been held in high esteem but was made at a time when very few leading conductors were recording Mahler. The field was not large. Now there must be in excess of 100 recordings to choose from so why choose this one?

Listening to this again, I enjoy the very natural sense of momentum and sense of journey and control that Kubelik has in this music. There is excitement aplenty in this music but there is also delicacy and gentleness - Kubelik must be the 'musical' Mahlerian ever. If you want brash primary colours and maybe a bit of 'klezmer' vulgarity in the 3rd movement, then go for someone like Bernstein or Solti. However if you value the other qualities described above, you won't be disappointed.

The recording quality is perhaps a little dry but it does enable the listener to register plenty of inner detail and to marvel at Mahler's skill as an orchestrator.

The symphony is coupled with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's recording of Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen. This is an apt coupling as the symphony uses material the Mahler used in the songs. This is a very good recording but it is not as hair raising as his previous recording with Furtwangler.

Highly recommended

This successful coupling fits not only the 1:st symphony but also the song cycle that Mahler later used countless themes from for his first three symphonies; "Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen". Kubelik chooses relatively swift tempos - ensuring excitement and cunningly avoiding any negative side of swiftness: the dreaded "rushing". In some aspects, Kubelik could be considered an outsider among Mahler conductors with a conducting style that sometimes are the exact opposite of many contemporary conductors. His fresh and uncomplicated interpretation is often very obvious but nevertheless brilliantly powerful. This midprice CD is remastered and very well remastered indeed with all analogue pros in a digital setting. In short, a very nice coupling!

This is an excellent recording of the first, and I like it immensely. Kubelik elicits some wonderfully open sounds from the BRSO, and the joyful moments in the symphony shine out.
HOWEVER, if you overlook the nice "DG Originals" packaging, you can get the exact same recording on "DG Classikon" for £2 cheaper. Its just above this entry...
