I'd never been exposed to Mahler's music in a serious way until I watched this blu-ray. Wow, what an experience! I didn't expect the 1 hour and 40 minutes could be that joyful and enjoyable. The performance was just flawless and outstanding! I was really impressed by the spirit of the music that was brought by becoming "ONE" of the whole orchestra, the soprano, women's choir, boy's choir, and maestro Claudio Abbado. The very last moment when Abbado finishes and pauses, was very touching. Now I'm a crazy fan of Mahler thanks to them and this quality blu-ray. I just hope all the previous concerts of Mahler music, including Boulez's Symphony No. 2 Resurrection, are released in blu-ray in the nearest future.
