I bought this as I was interested to compare an SACD and CD recording of this vast work. Well, the recorded sound is wonderful, with natural timbres and sense of space. There is no digital harshness and the performance can be played back at high volume without fatigue so that the wide dynamic range (the distant trumpet is very distant indeed) can be appreciated. So five stars for the recording.
But the performance didn't engage at all, there was no narrative - this bit happened, then this bit, now we're on to the last section ... but why?

The Rattle performance with inferior 16 bit CD sound thrills me still, so it's not the work itself but, alas, the interpretation that is responsible for my lack of emotional engagement with a work that should shake one to the core.

I'm not an expert on Mahler but I found this performance very moving. The recording is first class and the performance is excellent.

I have only heard this using ordinary CD equipment but I imagine that the SACD is very fine indeed. First, the sound. The huge problem with Mahler 2 is that the end is so magnificent and so loud that most recordings have to be compressed or turned down by the engineers in the final two minutes or so. Not surprising when you consider that this is a work that has to be heard in a good hall to make its impact - organ, huge brass section, clanging bells, bass drum thwacks, tam-tam rolls and so on. This recording copes magnificently, but therein lies the problem for ordinary home reproduction. The dynamic range of the recording is from quietest whisper of sound to wonderfully contained roar! The best results, therefore, come from turning up the volume louder than you might normally, marvelling at the delicacy of much of the soft playing (and there is a large amount of very quiet music in this symphony too) and then holding on during the climaxes. This does not work too well if you have near neighbours and I suppose that if you are a solitary listener then headphones might be the answer, which is a shame because the feeling of being towards the back of a fine hall is lost (remember, I have only heard CD playback but am told that SACD immerses you even more deeply in the music). One thing about listening on headphones is that one gets a sharper than usual sense of three-dimensional sound.

The orchestra play magnificently and the slides and portamenti in the strings are delightfully managed. Percussion sounds amazingly natural, woodwind is well characterised and the brass is very fine indeed. The offstage effects in the last movement are at the most extreme distance and have you listening with almost painful concentration.
