Mahler: Symphony No. 3 - Zander          (2 of 7 found this review helpful)
  September 22, 2004

On the suggestion of other members of these boards, I have purchased this recording. It is with some surprise and regret that I report that I find this Zander interpretation to be bland and unexciting. With overall faster tempi, the performance seems to generate an artificial excitement. However, ... more

I love this symphony, and it's the first one I had studied from Bruckner, and that was with the Karajan BPO playing the 3rd Fassung. This recording, uses the 1st Edition, ... more
Mahler: Symphony No. 3 - Chailly          (1 of 3 found this review helpful)
  June 20, 2004

Move to the head of the class. The performance here by Chailly and the RCOA overshadows recent SACDs from Boulez and MTT. This is the real deal. FINALLY! I'll probably edit this review later with more detail, but for now, here are my quick thoughts thrown together. Everything is so carefully ... more
