Format: Audio CD
Recently, I ran a blind comparison project on the GMG Classical Music Forum for Mahler's 1st symphony, and this recording from the RCO and Jansons came out as first place, beating Solti, Abbado, Honeck and Tilson Thomas in the final round.
When I first got hold of this recording in order to include it in the blind comparison project, I was expecting it to be a fine recording, but honestly, not one to stand as a real contestor against the likes of both Bernstein accounts for example. I was very very wrong. On listening to this for this for the first time, this instantly became one of my favourites in the comparison, challenging even my own personal favourites for Mahler 1, such as Solti.
Many of the voters in the comparison agreed with me, and were also surprised when the conductor was revealed as being Jansons.
Myself and others had perhaps not felt Jansons as a fantastic or interesting Mahlerian before, but in this recording he really demonstrates a natural feel for the music. In the interpretation, there is little to fault. All the tempi are very well-judged, everything is very well balanced. The RCO really show how incredible an orchestra they are here, their flexibility for the many exciting contrasts in this masterpiece is excellent. They really have such a natural feel for the music, encouraged all the way by Jansons, creating a really beautiful flow throughout the entire performance. In the climaxes, such excitement is generated, and the lyrical, poetic themes (such as that after the stormy opening of the finale) are giving such a romantic, subtle beauty. I find it difficult to think of a more perfect 2nd movement than that Jansons gives us, it's natural, full of charm and delight! The very ending of the finale too, is incredibly thrilling and brilliant.

I have been a fan of Mariss Jansons for some time. This recording of Mahler 1 is very accurate to the score and very pleasing to hear. Jansons conducts with a light touch and avoids the heavy, ostentatious phrasing which one too often hears in Mahler. The Concertgebouw Orchestra is first rate, as is most often the case, with a clear sound throughout and overall the recording has been well-balancecd by the sound-engineers. It would not be the only version of the work that I want to possess, but it has been a very worthwhile purchase. I would strongly recommend it to anyone new to Mahler, as well as to old-hands in search of a fresh reading.

This is my new favourite Mahler 1 for the time being. Having seen Jansons and the RCO play Mahler a few times I think they are one of the few current conductor/orchestra combinations that really make Mahler work for me.
I'm listening to it on an Arcam SACD player and the sound quality is exceptional.

Alongside Dudamel (only available on DG on DVD or download though) this jansons recording is my favourite Mahler 1. This series has a lot to commend it. Recommended
