Mahler: Symphony No. 2 - Wiener Philharmoniker/Kaplan        (2 of 4 found this review helpful)
  Review by fluffn0se January 4, 2005

Mahler's 2nd Symphony I've only ever heard this symphony on the earlier Bernstein CD cycle (and the radio once or twice), which I like a lot.

  Review by sgb December 31, 2004

The Pathétique on recordings has been something of an enigma to me for many years. I have not yet found a recorded performance that suits me perfectly; Pletnev's earlier recording for Virgin with the Russian National Orchestra is one that the critics have recommended.
