HD-Vinyls 24/192 & 16/44 (EMI) Gustav Mahler – Symphony No. 5, Symphony 10 Adagio (Tennstedt)

front-small-boxset Many thanks to Jean-Luc for this great version of this masterpiece
In the music of Gustav Mahler, who demanded of his symphonies that they “contain the world,” the conductor Klaus Tennstedt found a kindred spirit. He found another in the corporate commitment of the London Philharmonic and became it’s chief conductor in 1983. The best orchestra for Mhaler’s work in the world, Tennstedt was proud to say and their studio cycle and later, even more intense recordings, were a “journey between the poles of triumph and catastrophe with a visionary zeal.” Tennstedt’s Mahler is of the old school; no “Mahler lite” here. The word which repeatedly came into my head while listening was “majestic”. His tempi are indeed often slow but by no means necessarily the slowest in comparison with other successful versions and his sense of the music’s architecture invariably means that he eschews any tendency to drag. The quality most associated with his interpretation is massiveness, a sense of great blocks of sound being manipulated into position to form a mighty edifice. Tennstedt called the London Philharmonic Orchestra “the best orchestra for Mahler in the world” and this Fifth is a great success.

  1. Extremely beautiful to me.
    I’m sorry I haven’t listened to Mahler much before this.
    I’ll have to listen more than once to get the hang of it; but it is very pleasant and stimulating.
    Thanks Jean-Luc and Alf for this gourmet offering.


  2. Thank You for another treasure. Indeed, Tennstedt’s tempi are slow. Thinking if it is OK, but still, it is Mahler, and Tennstedt 🙂 and Your rip!
