Format: Audio CD
This symphony has been recorded many times over the years and I have no doubt, Mahler enthusiasts will have their own particular favorite. I particularly like the Solti/Decca version and the Haitink/Phillips which as far as I know, are still available. Mahler completed this monumental work before his death, and sadly never heard it performed in public. It is now recognised as one of Mahler's most advanced works, and a supreme achievement in its own right. This version by Sir John Barbirolli, first recorded in 1964, is a digitally remastered version and almost certainly should be given a try by Mahler fans. The overall performance is wonderful. The strings sound beautiful, especially in the famous Adagio. The sound may be a little unbalanced for some, too loud in some parts and barely audible in others. But it should not distract the listener from what is perhaps one of Barbirolli's finest achievement. Recorded on a single CD, it can be bought for a reasonable price bearing in mind the overall quality of the production.

vaughan Williams description of John Barbarolli conducting his music could equally be applied to this stunning interpretation. If ever any recording demonstrated his genious at getting the world's great orchestras to play out of their skins,this surely is it. Great music,great playing,great conducting. Play late at night and the experience is overwhelming.

Gustav Mahler's autumnal symphony is beautifully rendered by the Berlin Philharmonic; with Sir John Barbirolli at the baton, it's sheer depth and passion is abundantly apparent. All the various orchestral timbres and textures are superbly elucidated, with playing that's completely motivated and connected. All in all, this is an indispensable recording, especially with this 2002 digital-remaster.
