||A welcome return|
Ormandyís Mahler 10th was the first recording (1965) of this edition by the English musicologist and writer Deryck Cooke. Many conductors have done it since and others have made their own performing versions while many have refused to accept it at all, Haitink, Levine and Bernstein being among them. Whatever you may think of it, and remember the first movement is authentic Mahler itís just the rest thatís reconstructed, it still is valuable and interesting even if it may not be what the composer would have finished up with. I have always quite enjoyed it and Ormandy gives a strong, straightforward and focused performance with wonderful playing from his stellar orchestra.

||Performance of a Lifetime.|
This is Ormandy and Philadelphia at their absolute best. It is a career peak, showcase, and highlight of Ormandy's interpretive insight and his approach to orchestral sonority. Ormandy's String bowings produce the most persuasive phrasing and tonal opulence. The beauty and continuity of line and singing tone of the strings will likely never be duplicated nor exceeded. Woodwinds balance and blend are at the highest level of sensitivity: their tonal and phrasing best.Brasses are exceptional;Horn and trumpet solos are in the artistic demonstration class: so are the sonics of the recording.Engineers helped a lot here: kudos to all.

||Still the Benchmark Recording|
I was privileged to attend the US premier performance in 1965 with Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra. This recording was made shortly after the performance. It is extraordinary, especially with the enhanced sound. Ormandy conducted this work with a passion and commitment that many did not know that he possessed. it might well be considered his greatest recorded achievement.
