This is a powerful and wonderfully crafted live performance of 6th by Abbado. It is not wild and raw-emotion performance of Bernstein or Tennstedt, but very eloquent one with noble dignity. The slow movement is sublime. The last hammer blow has amazing weight and impact. Beautifully and expansively recorded.

Firstly i dont like Mahler. Total contridiction you say. However i heard this played on a classical radio station and was immediatly blown away. I love it it is brilliantly written and, i played it 3 times in a row. A wonderful piece of music and i wish i had heard it earlier in my live because i would have bought it earlier. Its great.

Magnificent recording of a wonderful piece. Just buy it. The Berliner Philharmoniker, Claudio Abbado and DG (Decca (UMO)) knock it out the park again. (This sounds more like a football review)
