An aura surrounds this performance, committed to history just days before the Anschluss. The recorded sound is satisfactory, the playing sometimes a bit scrappy when they're pushed, as they are by Walter. 18 minutes for the final movement? Not just to accommodate the whole piece on the allocated number of shellac discs? It works. Not a first choice for the piece, but a must-have for Mahlerians.

I bought this for my husband because he has recently discovered Mahler's Symphonies, and this is known as a classic recording. He was absolutely delighted with it, and I was very delighted that it arrived so quickly.

Walter conducts Vienna PO in Mahler 9 : buy, 22 Dec. 2015
Edit Review
Delete Review
This review is from: Symphony No. 9 In D Minor (Audio CD)
as pupil of Mahler himself, Bruno Walter had direct access to the maestro s conducting style and mindset and here Walter conducts the Vienna PO live in 1938 in an essential cd for all Mahler fans. why ? well the recording here on Dutton Labs is remarkable vivid for the time , informative booklet notes by actual Vienna recording producer Fred Gaisberg as well as rare photo of Walter and the Vienna PO during the sessions make this Dutton Labs cd a must have purchase for its historical importance and performance and comparison.

i know naxos and also EMI have also released this landmark recording on cd also but i can't comment any possible sound mastering or booklet notes alas. here though - the Dutton version sounds very good indeed with strings and woodwind clear and enough low level growl from the basses and cellos in the famous valedictory adagio.

the music ? earth shatteringly emotional, tender, masterful, deeply expressive as you should expect from arguably the premier symphonic composer - one Gustav Mahler. i have fine versions by Rudolph Barshai on BIS as well as Halsz on naxos . Bernstein, Karajan, Rattle , Barbiroli et al also need to be heard , but here Walter and the Vienna PO offer a historic landmark version. four stars going on five.

I did not notice that this was recorded in 1938 - more the fool me. I did not think it worth the price. The intonation is wavy from the start - the brass and woodwind sound week - and the tympanist seems to be using tuned cardboard boxes. I wouldn't recommend this for quality listening. It sounds like a school orchestra on a bad day.
