I have little to add to the well written review from American Amazon when it comes to the interpretation, but all I can say is that the recording is a sonic delight, rich and clear, with a beautiful, warm and round sound in the deeper instruments. Also, the playing is on an extraordinarily high level, and while this, in the opinion of many, may be secondary to a whopping interpretation, I'm too much of a "Schöngeist" not to pay a fair amount of attention to that particular detail of musicianship. And I'm also not a bit proud that such a small country as Holland not only manages to beget crowd pleaser André Rieu, but also an orchestra that is considered by many to be the best in the business. The evidence is on this disc.

This is a super performance, superbly recorded. The RCO bring all their experience in Mahler to bear and Jansons leads a live performance that lacks only the last iota of excitement. The recording captures the Gramophone magazine's "Best Orchestra in the World" (I used to think that was the VPO, but I have to say on hearing this I'm beginning to wonder) in terrific detail and power (I loved the placement of the offstage horn in the Landler movement) and as many others have commented here sonically this is first-rate.

The performance is extremely good: Jansons, as you would expect, doesn't favour extreme tempos and for me this was a consistently satisfying interpretation throughout. One or two moments perhaps lack that last frisson: the entrance of Pan in the first movement being one, and the very end of the piece being another, although I have to say that after 40 years of hearing and loving this symphony I'm tempted to think that this is - at least in part - Mahler's fault, since I don't think I've ever heard the finale come off completely successfully even under the likes of Solti, Tennstedt, Abbado et al.

But these are small quibbles: if you're in the mood for a modern performance in fabulous sound, then you should hear this. I'd give it 4 and a half stars if I could.

First class playing and musical direction. The brass section have a beautiful sound, yet are able to achieve real weight and authority when required. I heard the RCO play this piece live at the Edinburgh Festival a few years ago. I was wondering if the recording would match the performance I heard that evening. It does. If you love Mahler and you're looking for a great orchestral playing, then buy this CD.

I do love the way Mariss Jansons conducts Mahler and this recording is no exception. There is a wonderful sense of space and the instruments are well positioned in an impressive sound stage. The performance itself is full of life and subtle nuances. I would recommend anyone thinking about Mahler's 3rd to go for this one.
