Format: Audio CD
There have been many fine Ninths from the world's super orchestras. Recent recordings from Abbado and Rattle in Berlin received acclaim and let's not forget the 1979 Bernstein recording - his only time with the Berliners.

Karajan's live recording is quite unique within his discography. barely two years on from the award-winning studio recording, he sanctions the release of this stupendous, devastatingly emotional performance captured at the Berlin Festival. As is well known, it is breathtaking in its playing and in its conducting. The sound is excellent and the current Gramophone Award Winners issue is very affordable. If you're ready to tackle the Ninth, you couldn't do better. Karajan really locks onto the philosophical victory being dramatized here.

Amongst the very greatest recordings by this prolific team, just how much so was brought home to me again recently while listening to the eloquent but comparatively safe Haitink/RCO version.

I bought this CD to supplement the studio recording made 2 years earlier by Karajan and the BPO that I have on LP (also available on CD Mahler: Symphony 9, Kindertotelieder, Ruckert Lieder). The performance is impeccable and the recording excellent. My only reservation is that it is almost too perfectly polished, for example near the end of the finale, the strings are so smooth that they lack the emotionally searing effect achieved in the studio recording.

However, in my view this is the best all-round CD available of Mahler's 9th.

This is the stand out recording and reading of this lovely work. It is Karajan's second recording and the great man, for me, did not record enough Mahler.

The adagio is simply stunning. This can be highly recommended.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Scriabinmahler TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 29 Mar. 2009
Format: Audio CD
Karajan's live version of the 9th is more powerful and profound than his earlier stereo recording and it matches Bernstein's outrageously explosive live recording on DG in depth and profundity. Karajan really knows how to achieve maximum emotional intensity and richness of Mahler's orchestration and to capture the sublimity of this amazing music.

If you are after super-profound performance of 9th, I can not recommend this one more alonside Giulini, Maderna, Bertini, Svetlanov and Horenstein's powerfully moving performances not to forget James Levine's amazing account on RCA.
