These two discs provide a superb introduction to the work of Paul Kletzki, a most underrated conductor. Kletzki was a great conductor in the old Central European tradition and was a pupil of Furtwangler. His conducting was characterised by a naturalness of phrasing and a highly poetic quality. This disc in built around two much loved symphonies - Sibelius 2nd and Mahler's 4th - and in each case Kletzki's versions are my favourite performances for each work. Kletzki's Sibelius 2 has beautifully observed detail and he broadens the great tune at the end of the symphony to create an overwhelming sense of apotheosis. Mahler's 4th has a splendid naturalness and sense of repose in Kletzki's version. Whilst I admire Szell's justly admired Cleveland performance, Kletzki's has greater poetry and tenderness. This disc also contains a beautifully observed and unsentimental performance of the adagietto from Mahler's 5th. The other items on the discs are stylishly done, especially the Schubert. The sound quality is exceptional for recordings of this period. Highly recommended.

One of the greatest Sibelius 2nds, and the rest of the programme is wonderful too. I hope Kletzki gets an "Icon" box set soon, he deserves it.

HASH(0x9493dc9c) out of 5 stars Excellent Conducting, Sound Adequate 24 May 2013
By RJAdams - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Kletzki really gets Mahler and conveys the beauty, irony, majesty, and drama of Symphony no 4. The soloist has a light voice, appropriate to the non-parodistic naif view of heaven, but the vocal timbre may not please everyone, being somewhat mousy. Kletzki's Sibelius Symphony no 2 is fine but the playing aof the Philharmonia cannot match the memorable, powerful, and sumptuous versions of Colin Davis/BSO, Ormandy/Philadelphia, and Segerstam/Helsinki.

HASH(0x92c2cdec) out of 5 stars Brilliant rendition of Sibelius's 2nd 29 Aug. 2010
By Shirl - Published on Amazon.com

There is Mahler and other stuff on this double album, but I was only really interested in the Sibelius 2nd Symphony, a recording that dates to the fifties and which I originally had on Vinyl, despite owning several other versions I don't think this one can be surpassed.
