5.0 out of 5 stars THE version of the first, 21 May 2003
This review is from: Mahler - Symphony No 1 (Audio CD)
This is THE version of the Mahler 1st. Together with Horenstein's version of the 3rd with the same orchestra, these old re-engineered mono recordings are still the ones to have. Unlike the quirky Horenstein performances with the Vienna Philharmonic, these are near perfect, perfectly timed, and profoundly emotional. All that's missing is the Blumine!

While I agree that this is THE version to have, it was recorded in stereo and is not a re-engineered old mono recording as stated. Ms Swanek has got a little confused. Also, Blumine belongs to an earlier, and different version of the symphony altogether.

Horenstein's 50's Monos for Vox were made with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra (not the Philharmonic.) Due to contractural obligations the LP covers identified the orchestra as the Vienna Pro Musica. CD reissues still indicate the same.

There seems to be a crossed wire with reviews of a Horenstein recording appearing under a new LSO Live Gergiev recording!
