CD Reviews

Among the finest Mahler 3rd Symphony recordings
John Kwok | New York, NY USA | 04/25/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"American conductor Kent Nagano's debut recording for Teldec is still acclaimed as one of the finest recordings of Mahler's 3rd symphony, holding its own against recent releases from the likes of Abbado and Boulez. Nagano's instincts as a Mahlerian show that he is more akin to Abbado than perhaps Bernstein, emphasizing the melodic aspects of the score, while not losing sight of its intricate sonic architecture. Although his Deutsches Berlin Sinfonie Orchester may not be as technically proficient as the Berliner Philharmoniker, the musicians in Berlin's second symphony orchestra offer a performance that is as vibrant and warm as those I have heard from their more illustrious peers under the batons of Abbado and Karajan. This is an emotionally intense, gut-wretching performance that is simply unforgettable, noted for the splendid horn solos and brilliant string playing, to name but a few. Mahler intended originally for this symphony to be a sonic evocation of biological evolution; a task which Nagano and his orchestra are well suited. I am not surprised that the Penguin Guide to Classical CDs has singled out this recording as among the finest of this symphony currently available."
The best recording of this piece of work!

"Mahler's 3rd symphony must be a very difficult work for orchestra and conductor because of length, balance, and tone. Kent's interpretation is quite authentic and harmony is fully considered. Every harmony of the score is vivid, and it makes me to feel that this is the first time to hear it. Great recording."

"This is among the very best Mahler 3rd. Symphony in CD. Nagano get the deep pantheism of the score and makes this Berlin orchestra sound like a gutural voice of nature. And the recording is one of the best that I¨d hear from the Philarmonie Berlin, a difficult acoustic place...If you can, hear also Nagano CD of Das klagende Lied."
