    (CD Deutsche Grammophon Universal Japan UCCG-4983 SHM-CD) 2014 .... recorded February-March 1969 .... Rafael Kubelik was a masterful Mahlerian and this Symphony 2 bears witness to the fact ....

    DG obviously chose a Klimt theme for the covers of that series. Very appropriate. This one is part of The Kiss.

    Did Kubelik do a good 3rd as well?
    I'm not a Mahler fan but was in the choir for a performance of this as a boy which was a great experience for me, and I've not heard it since which I should rectify!

    A lovely album. I used to sing Ave Verum a lot as a boy - stuck in my head ever since!

    You should go for this one .... :

    (CD Audite 24.403) 2001 .... Kubelik`s well paced conducting and the Symphonie Orchester des Bayrischen Rundfunks at their very best makes this a memorable performance (which I slightly prefer to the DG studio recording) .... excellent live recording sound courtesy of Bavarian Radio BR ....

    Fabulous, thanks! The vinyl of this on Audite is rather pricey so I will pick up an earlier edition on DG for sure ...

    Just MP3. Very acceptable sound quality, but not SACD-ish. :)

    Wasn’t entirely convinced by Kubelik‘s 3rd. My favourite one is Abbado‘s studio recording from the early 80s. That one is just amazing and the one you should get. It can be had for very cheap on CD as part of the Originals series (identical to the 80s CD in terms of sound)—the vinyl (which I also have) will be more expensive, but not impossible to find.

    The detail Abbado brings out in the score is lovely, while still keeping the whole in mind. Ever since I’ve heard that, I can’t unhear some of the phrasing and balancing—I am spoiled for other recordings. Also good is an earlier recording by Jascha Horenstein. But I still like Abbado‘s more.

    I think Thomas only recorded the 1st and 4th.

    I never thought about sewing. Maybe if I could sew it might be an option. :sigh: But I agree that it is going to be difficult--or impossible--to repair one of these invisibly. I was thinking about gluing... perhaps using some super glue (fast drying, strong hold) made for paper/cloth. If all else fails, I suppose one could just tape the seam from the inside.

    Here is a 1969 ad for these albums from DG‘s catalogue. It would take two more years for the cycle to be complete and the 14-LP box to appear.

    “Tape from the inside”—if you can. The seam split on mine is only on the outside, but the inside is fine. So a bit more complicated.

    Two of the greatest basses of the last century today.

    This Ward Marston transfer is very, very good. I compared it to the Nimbus release which was typical Nimbus in that it was recorded through a horn and the Marston sounded the most natural.

    Then another great Baritone, the father of Igor Kipnis, Alexander Kipnis, a generation younger and also a wonderful voice.

    The same here. I already have too many Mahler recordings for someone who really is not a fan ...

    He did, but given that you're not a Mahler fan I'd suggest to listen to it first if you get the chance, before buying it.
