“Astonishing sound quality. I wish all producers and engineers would listen to masters like this and apply the miraculous remastering that they did to the previous release’s imaging and SQ. This is a great recording that will show you exactly how good your system is!
“This release, incorporating both multi-channel and 2-channel SACD playback is simply amazing for the amount of orchestral detail revealed in the original 60s recording. The multi-channel playback took a bit to get used to if one has grown up with the stereo version, but it was as if I were listening to this interpretation for the very first time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if you must have the very best playback capability for this Bernstein recording. Get it before it disappears!
“The recording finds Bernstein in good musical shape and the summit of his maturity. Besides the New York Philharmonic with his accustomed excellence (these horns and winds!) joined efforts and recorded the whole cycle of Mahler’s symphonies.
“If the Mahler 5th is one of your favorite classical works, this disc is a winner and I would recommend it without qualification. I urge you strongly to give it a try, provided your wallet can stand it.” – SACD Review
