Format: Audio CD
I highly appreciate this symphony, as do the other reviewers here. And I also like Yevgeny Mravinsky's classical performance of it.

Nevertheless, it is definetely Celibidache who has rendered the most convincing performance of this masterwork ever.

There is no other recording that captures the "logic" of this piece in the same way as this recording does. True, the speed is quite unusual. But, especially in the first movement, this adds to the quality and depths of the music.

The overall balance of the Munich orchestra is splendid, as the musicians follow their conductor's advice that each member has to pay close attention to what the other musicians do; in that way, this symphony orchestra works out nuances, shades and colors of the music as usually only world-class chamber orchestras do. The playing of the string and brass sections is particularly gorgeous. Most importantly, the conductor's sense for the structure and inner detail of the music is unparalleled, as is his sense for the tragic dimension of the piece; the musical lines unfold in a very natural way, as if the music would imitate the breathing of a human being!

This is the most truthful musicmaking you will ever come to experiece, provided that you are an open-minded lover of classical music that dares to give this unusual approach a fair chance!

Highly recommended.

There are those (many?!) who deride Bernstein's version for dragging the music out to unsustainable lengths and they may classify this version in the same way. However, although Bernstein's has been a favourite of mine since it was released, this version provides a quite differnet experience. Yes, it is slow, but it is music that needs to breathe and under this conductor it does just that. It may not have the full-on emotion that Bernstein generates but it is every bit as satisfying an experience, if not more so. As a conductor friend of mine who heard it recently said " It is like hearing the music for the first time" and he was quite right.

Yes its slow, but what else do you expect from a recording of Celibidache? Granted, this is not the only recording of Tchaikovsky's 6th symphony you should have on your collection, but it does enrich it. Not everyone likes Celibidache's slow approach (the recording is about 10 minutes longer then a normal performance of the 6th symphony), but his performance is certainly entertaining.

Incredibly beautiful music. The slow time only enhances the beauty of music. I recommend it to all who love the music of Tchaikovsky

This recording is twice as long as my other version of this symphony. I love this symphony more than any other, and I have never ever been more bored in my entire life. The fact that the orchestra seems almost unable to follow him is also a downside, but then it is probably not their fault, he is sooooo desparetly slow. I can not strees enoguh how dissapointed I am with this recording. You would be better off getting Mavrinsky conducting this.
