good but not great,
This review is from: Mahler: Symphony 2 'Resurrection' (Audio CD)
the long, tormented journey from grief to exalted elevation is well represented in this recording, but it does not match the depth of emotion and intellectual struggle of ealier recordings by Bruno Walter (Vienna Philarmonic and NY Philarmonic), Otto Klemperer, John Barbirolli and Leonard Bernstein. Of the most recent vintage Claudio Abbado's DVD from Lucerne stands out for its intensity and clarity alongside the new Boulez's version (VPO)on cd.
