    For me, the sonics were a letdown, but I also found Annie's playing to be disappointing. I wanted more excitement from her. And the slow movement was too fast.

    Thanks for the recommendation. Along with Klemperer #2, I've also just ordered Barbirolli #5. Hopefully these should keep me busy for a while (hint: they won't...).

    Your welcome! Barbirolli's 6th is my favorite recording of any Mahler symphony.

    I can't see either without opening in a new tab, but that's typical for discog.com images. I don't know why.

    I think you misread my post, I can see the image - twice :)

    I can't post a full list of favourite conductors of Mahler Symphonies as it depends on the mood I'm in, but Nézet-Séguin, Mehta and Ozawa wouldn't be on it. Szell's 4th and Karajan's 9th (the live one from 1992) are the best of those symphonies in my opinion, regardless of mood :) Conductors I like in Mahler are Haitink, Klemperer (2 and 9), Abbado, Giulini (1 and 9), Boulez, Chailly, Szell (6), Karajan and Kubelík (1). I probably forgot one or two.

    Bernstein is not a favourite of mine. I acknowledge his efforts to revive interest in Mahler, but that doesn't mean I have to like his work, it's not mandatory - it seems to be like that in the US :).

    That's definitely Jim Flora cover art (c.1953-56) :thumbsup:

    I was doubtful about the Mahler 1 by Nezet-Seguin when I saw it recommended on this thread, but when I read the positive reviews and gave it a chance I was pleasantly surprised. I like it better than my other three recordings of this symphony. I like the performance and it is an excellent sounding disc, probably one of my best newer orchestral Redbook CD recordings. As for the Karajan 9th, do you mean the live one from 1982 and not 92? That is the one I have and like.

    Yes, of course, 1982. Typo. Karajan died in 1989, so it would have taken a lot of effort to have him conduct and record in 1992 ;) Seriously, pity he didn't record more Mahler Symphonies; for some reason he never did 1-3 and 7-8.

    Wow I was just asking your opinion since he was in the original list and you didn't mention him his one you liked or didn't like...

    Bruno Walter’s reading of Mahler 9th is too underrated. It is not a over statement that he began his stereo recording after the hiatus only to record the 9th.
    It is rumored that Columbia Records was reluctant to make the recording and Walter said it would be alright without the recording fee. His obsession resulted in the soulful performance.

    I have really grown to love Walter's work. I'm so glad I picked up the Edition box when it was available.

    Does the sensibility for Ländler still survive in Germany today?

    I definitely need to give it another listen :) I briefly listened to Rubinstein with Krips and Giulini last night, the former didn't hold up as well as I thought and I had never found the latter that interesting a performance.

    I just picked up an original 1s 1a Indiana (I) pressing of this release. NM vinyl. Great sound. No ticks and pops on this original. Paid $20
