The best Mahler on disc!,
This review is from: Mahler: Symphony No.2 (Audio CD)
Simply to endorse the existing review: this is the best Mahler 2 on disc. I picked this up when it was first issued on vinyl a long time ago and was blown away. The CD version is just as good. This is Mahler 2 as it should be: intense, majestic, plaintive (Urlicht will bring tears to your eyes: the Mezzo is divine) and powerful. The final bars could break your windows or cause a serious rift with your neighbours, so be careful. A fantastic performance and a technically superb recording.
