CD Reviews

A wonderful live performance and interpretation!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After a recording of this magnitude, it seems unimagineable that the Houston Symphony is not more recorded. Given this is a live recording, the performance is flawless. Technically speaking, the intonation could not be better. Eschenbach brings out the colors that need to be to create a well balanced sound. Bravo to the fine horns and trumpets. All too often a performance is ruined by a clutter of unbalanced instrumental sound, and with this CD that is not a problem. All around, you cannot go wrong with this intense performance."

"This recording deserves so much more publicity, let alone it should remain in print! Out of the 30 recordings of Mahler's first symphony that I own, I rate this as the best.

The sound quality is unsurpassed. This is a live recording and I have studio recordings that don't sound nearly as good.

But the best is Eschenbach's interpretation. It is perfect for the Titan.

Pick this up if you can!

Also, check out Abbado's early '80s recording with the Columbia Symphony Orchestra on Deutsche Grammophon. That is another tremendous version."
