Mahler


Mahler: Symphony No. 5

Mahler: Symphony No. 5 Lowest used price: $4.99

With 50 or so recordings of this great work available, with superb Bernstein and Boulez fascinating at opposite ends of the heat spectrum and dozens of other valid ones in between, a reviewer approaches a new set with trepidation and the possibility of a stifled yawn. On goes this CD, and voila! One is dazzled. Recorded live in Koln in 1997, this finds the Chicago Symphony at its most virtuosic and Barenboim at his most engaged. The bitter is distinct from, rather than taken for, the gloomy; the martial does not seem out of place with the romantic. The third movement whips itself toward the ideal frenzy; the famous Adagietto is as lovely and lyrical as it gets. The performance holds together brilliantly in the way that Mahler wanted--all the disparate elements make their individual statements, but they are clearly part of the same worldview. This is superb, really--and even with an embarrassment of Mahler Symphony No. 5 riches out there, this one shines. --Robert Levine


Mahler: Symphony No. 1 / Brahms: Variations on a Theme By Haydn

Mahler: Symphony No. 1 / Brahms: Variations on a Theme By Haydn Lowest new price: $13.99
Lowest used price: $5.04

Bruno Walter recorded the Mahler First twice; in 1961 with a California pickup orchestra assembled for a series of stereo recordings, and this 1954 mono version with the New York Phil. Good as his stereo performance is, this one's better. The conductor was younger, and it shows in a reading that has more energy. The tumultuous last movement is more coherent, the orchestra a lot better, and even the sound is dynamic and full-bodied, trailing its successor only by lacking stereo effects. Walter's Mahler never indulged in the hysteria that's become commonplace, and it's bracing to hear again, especially in Sony's outstanding transfers and packaging. Walter was a preeminent Brahmsian and his Variations are among the better versions available. --Dan Davis
