Format: Audio CD
For some reason i can't explain i instinctively thought that Mahler and Pappano would not be good partners. I'm delighted to say i was wrong. Right from the outset this is a 6th to be reckoned with. A very slow and heavy tread marks the opening march, allowing the strings maximum time to find every ounce of bite and neck hairs were immediately up!

The first movement as a whole is one of the most powerfully exciting i have ever heard and with a truly wild and sometimes barbaric Scherzo coming second i felt pretty punch-drunk after the first 40 mins of music, an odd feeling in the solitude of one's livingroom! Thankfully Pappano's Andante is more relaxed than some, the lyrical beauty of the writing to the fore. Then, for a Mahler novice, he shows fantastic control throughout the long finale, with the tension never dropping. I agree with the review on that says Pappano finds a joy in the big romantic surges that punctuate this movement so that relentless bleakness that is commonly referred to concerning this movement is not so relentless but rather more bi-polar in it's enormous mood swings and i welcome that when played with this much conviction.

Pappano gets his Italian orchestra to play out of their skins..clear and perfectly balanced in all departments with solo playing that sounds as good as any in Vienna, Berlin or Amsterdam. They are recorded live and the sonics are as rich, powerful and open as his great Rachmaninov 2nd from the same source. As far as i know there are very few if any Italian Orchestra Mahler recordings at the top of anyone's list but this changes that.

I have Rattle's, Abbado's, Solti's, Boulez's, Karajan's amazing version from the 70 s..... I am glad I bought this new version, great sound, performance, for whatever my opinion is worth, is excellent. I like the slower pace of the first movement, somehow adds even more gravitas to the whole - if that's possible!
For me the adagio is the bench mark and Karajan made that level in 78 , I remember one gramophone reviewer saying something like, it's in the adagio that Karajan puts this performance on a new plateau.
Pappano does get to the same atmosphere!
So, there, a different but well worth it version.
