Mahler never disappoints. This Symphony is magnificent (despite its length) and the final movement is well worth waiting for.
Delivery was before the expected time.

The genius of Mahler is performed greatly and one of his finest works. I love Mahler and would recommend this to any young musician seeking direction and motivation.

Particularly pleased with this CD, the cover with cut-out letters was particularly attractive. Love Mahler, loved this CD!!

Having loved Abbado's first reading Gustav Mahler Symphonie No 3 of this lengthy symphony with Jessye Norman - which gripped you by the throat at the first trombone blast - I was a little disappointed at the 'distant' feel of this live BPO recoding. The quality of the playing is superb but the sound volume leaves one craving more 'gravy.'

I would suggest VPO/Boulez Mahler - Symphony No 3 or CBSO/Rattle Mahler: Symphony No.3 if you require a modern reading of this fantastic piece. Go for a Bernstein if you want an older recording.

A fine performance, well recorded - the recording is not so immediate as some (other reviewers have noticed this) but Mahler 3 has a huge orchestra so it pays to be a little back from the action. I soon got used to it anyway.

It's a pity your short description of the work includes Anna Larsson, a singer who is heard in two short movements of a 90-minute work, but doesn't mention the conductor, Claudio Abbado, on whom the whole performance depends. Classical, orchestral music is not pop, and shouldn't be treated as such.
