Claudio Abbado and his hand-picked players of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra take their acclaimed Mahler cycle to a new level with this performance of the most complex and compelling of the symphonies, the intense, searching Ninth. Abbado brings all his renowned clarity of vision and the experience of a lifetime to this contradictory music half valedictory, half life-affirming and his orchestra of soloists, including some of the leading instrumentalists of our time, revels in the transparent textures and virtuosity of Mahlers last completed symphony.
The listener is rendered speechless at the thrilling depth and perfection of the symbiosis achieved here between artistic wisdom and undimmed joy in making music at the highest level. --Christian Wildhagen, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, August 24, 1010
This is a mind blowing experience-a Mahler Ninth as great as any I've heard, and a superlative continuation of what is proving to be the most profoundly satisfying Mahler cycle of our times. --IRR,Apr'11
Abbado's unparalleled 'orchestra of soloists'in Mahler's valedictory Ninth. EDITORS CHOICE --Gramophone,June'11
It felt like the greatest concert in my experience and surely its intensity will be communicated to anyone who buys this indispensible DVD. Performance ***** Recording ***** --BBC Music Magazine,June'11
BBC Music Magazine: DVD (Performance) Award Winner --- It's surely that extraordinary relationship which makes this Maher Ninth uniquely compelling: the searing commitment to Abbado is written on each face; their edge-of-the-seat concentration, and eye contact with the conductor, charged with meaning. --BBC Music Magazine May '12

Having viewed Abbado's version of Mahler's 5th Symphony recorded with the Lucerne Festival orchestra recently, encouraged by positive reviews I decided to purchase this version.
I am glad I did, for although Abbado takes a much slower tempo than Barbirolli, Solti, even Berstein, I enjoyed it tremendously. The picture quality is absolutely outstanding for a blu-ray edition and cannot be faulted. I must admit though, as far as the audio is concerned, i did have difficulty with certain parts of the work, having to turn up the volume substantially, most particularly during the final bars of the first movement, and also the final bars of the Adagio which contains some of the most haunting music ever composed by any composer. Dimming the lights was something I had never experienced in a concert before, it certainly enhanced my experience of watching this on my Home Cinema.
It is not surprising that Abbado and the orchestra were given a standing ovation, for overall it was a great viewing experience.
Movie buffs will I am sure have spotted that fine Swiss actor Bruno Ganz (Downfall; The Reader; Unknown) in the audience. He certainly seems to have enjoyed the concert like everyone else who was there, an unforgettable night for all.
