3.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully played but badly presented, 11 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mahler: Symphonies 1-10; Totenfeier; Das Lied Von Der Erde (Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra) [Blu-ray] [2014] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
In 2012 it is unacceptable that a set such as this should be sold with no subtitles to the extensive choral sections and not at all considerate that no other information of any kind about the discs is given. They are well played and recorded but a large chunk of the enjoyment has been hacked away with no explanantion or advance warning. This is disgraceful.

Who knows. perhaps they'll do a recall and sort his lamentable situation out.

Sadly I see no chance of that. All discs are bare-bones with no added data at all. Some people may accept that but most will not and they need to know BEFORE they buy as what is offered is too remote from the norm to be acceptable

Le Blaireau says:
I too was disappointed that there wasn't some form of presentation material, at the very least about the Concertgebouw Orchestra, hall and their Mahler tradition, since that's the point of it all. When you're forking out sixty pounds for a set it doesn't seem a lot to ask.
To be honest, I hadn't registered the lack of subtitles, I listened to the set for the first time last night, and started with the Resurrection but (I guess because I know the piece pretty well by now) I hadn't thought about it, and anyway the music and performance was spectacular enough that I was totally immersed in them. But now you mention it, yes of course you're right, and whilst not everyone might need the subtitles, not to provide them at all is very poor.
