"Don't let the bargain-basement cost of this CD fool you: Nanut's performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 1 with the Ljubljana Symphony Orchestra is a steal. I've seen it pass through a variety of CD incarnations over the years--- and now, on the Point label, it's still one of classical music's best kept secrets. And how authentic can you get, to boot? Nanut, a fine Mahlerian in every sense of the word, and in every aspect, is here conducting the very same orchestra Mahler ruled over years ago. Listen, for example, to the hushed, growing drama of the Langsam Schleppend; Nanut's vision never exceeds his grasp, especially in a movement that, under improper direction, could go wildly astray. As well, the 3rd Movement "Feierlich" is wonderfully paced, never metronomic; it has breadth, with just enough sardonic wit, and a glorious, glowing trio section. The recording is warm, but detailed, with particularly fine string sections--- both left and right.
