Mahler: Symphony No. 6 Customer Reviews
||Excellent Mahlr 6th in Superb Sound|
Haitink has matured greatly in the past decade or so. His work with the CSO is outstanding in my opinion. The sound that the technicians have obtained with the SACD is impressive. They don't overwhelm you with bass drum thwacks, but the bass and tympani sound as though you were in Orchestra Hall, Chicago, in the 10th row center. Quite an accomplishment. I am not a musicologist and so cannot comment on all the niceties (or not so niceties) of the interpretation, but I've been listening to this music for 60 years and find this recording to be near the top of the pile. I give this 4 stars only because there is likely a contender worthy of the fifth star somewhere (or somewhen). Being introduced to Mahler through this recording surely isn't a bad way to start. A great recording by a great orchestra and conductor.
