Having a vast Mahler collection already with at least 5 full symphony cycles plus numerous individual recordings I didn't really need one more, but apart from Symphony No. 4 I had never heard Tennstedt in Mahler, so I was curious and obtained this set at the absolute bargain price that it is sold for now. Every symphony on this set is a special event! They really come alive, it's impossible to describe in words, but they really "lift off" with Tennstedt. I have heard so many new details with these recordings, he is a master of clearly distinguishing between which instrument has the leading voice and which doesn't, so it's not all played in forte or mezzoforte as with so many conductors, but there are so many fine nuances in this finely woven carpet of sounds. The tempi are excellent, allowing the rich orchestration to really shine when needed but also playing down those passages which have little musical material. Symphonies 5, 6 & 7 are especially beautiful. In No. 5 the Adagietto - surely an over-played piece - finally comes alive like I have never heard it before! It's slow, but so wonderfully phrased, it becomes the centre of gravity for the whole symphony. The finale is swift and light, not the heavy and loud beast that it's usually played as. And rightly so, the content is lighter and his way of playing perfectly fits to the slow Adagietto. So, finally Mahler is played in a truly symphonic way, the music develops, there is a true construction of the musical material, one phrase building on another.

This one is a no-brainer, get it for a very special experience! I'd probably go as far as saying that if you ever wanted one cycle only, this would be it. (Well, apart maybe from adding Symphony No. 9 with Bernstein and the Berlin Philharmonic, which is a class of its own.) This is far better than the already excellent Rattle/Birmingham cycle or Rattle's latest instalments with the Berlin Philharmonic. They are worlds apart and I'd give Tennstedt my preference.

Tennstedt's EMI Mahler recordings are very well respected. Obviously, all Mahlerites have their own favourites and none of these discs would be my first choice in any of the symphonies. However, this is no slight to Tennstedt when one considers the wealth of great Mahler recordings available to us these days. You will find plenty of good reviews for these recordings both from critics and the listening public so there's no real need to add detail in this review.

If you are looking for a fine introduction to Mahler then this set should fit the bill nicely. The performances in my opinion are never less than very good as is the recorded sound. If you are looking to add this cycle to your current Mahler collection then be quick before it's deleted. Given that it also contains Tennstedt's live recordings of No. 5,6 & 7 it is bound to prove popular with Mahler collectors. As is the norm these days, the discs come in a space saving cardboard clam shell box so that you have more shelf-space for adding to your Mahler collection. It is a highly recommended package, so make some space in your collection beside the Chailly, Solti, Rattle and Bernstein.

To say that I have listened to every note of this 16 CD set before reviewing it would not be true, but I have certainly already spent many hours in its company and feel able to deliver at least a preliminary account of its many virtues and possible drawbacks.

Tennstedt's Mahler is of the old school; no "Mahler lite" here. The word which repeatedly came into my head while listening was "majestic". His tempi are indeed often slow but by no means necessarily the slowest in comparison with other successful versions and his sense of the music's architecture invariably means that he eschews any tendency to drag. The quality most associated with his interpretation is massiveness, a sense of great blocks of sound being manipulated into position to form a mighty edifice.

This studio cycle was recorded over a period of nine years from 1977 to 1986 and I would say right away that the sound is remarkably good. At first sight, EMI's decision to remaster only some symphonies is puzzling but in fact is quite straightforward: only those symphonies recorded in analogue between 1977 and 1981 have been deemed in need of remastering, which was done between 2000 and 2002 - with the exception of no. 2, which was recorded in very early digital in 1981 and thus presumably too glassy or in some way unsatisfactory owing to inexperience with the technology. Otherwise, the remaining nos. 4, 6, 7, 8 and "Das Lied von der Erde" and the three live recordings of no. 5, from 1988, no. 6, from 1991 and no. 7,from 1993, were all recorded in digital sound and EMI have presumably deemed it unnecessary to remaster them.

This is a very fine set of recordings. Klaus Tennstedt is one of the great Mahler interpreters. The London Philharmonic respond well to his conducting. There is a great deal of beautiful singing from the vocal soloists. Where solos are required they are very fine. There is great ecstatic playing from the brass section.There is some lovely work from the woodwind section. The percussion comes with magnificent sound quality as required. Some of the symphonies (3 and 8) are possibly the finest performances available. None of the movements of any of the symphonies is any less than good. In addition in this box there are a studio performance and a live performance of symphonies 5, 6 and 7, enabling instant comparisons to be made. This is fascinating. Also, I particularly enjoy the singing of the London Philharmonic Choir and the Tiffin School Boy's Choir and also Southend Boy's Chorus. These symphonies are a deeply spiritual experience - there is the brightness of light and tragic darkness experienced with deep emotional intensity. Klaus Tennstedt brings out, from the musicians, music that can be gentle and then terrifying. All the world is here.
