Re: Mahler 9th Symphony Analysis: Duggan
In my endless trawling of Amazon for a bargain I came across a download album unimaginatively called "Mahler - The Essential Orchestral Works". [http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mahler-The-Essential-Orchestral-Works/dp/B001QA912Q/ref=sr_shvl_album_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1304368187&sr=301-1] For £5.99 this is absurd value. Reasonable 220+ kbps in the main for the ex-Vox LSO/Farberman Symphonies 1,4,5,6 + RPO/Farberman Ressurection + Horenstein Historic Kindertotenlieder + Fahrenden Gesellen + a really not bad Slovenia "Das Lied" + the LSO/Ludwig Symphony No.9 (which I haven't yet listened to)which I assume is the version discussed here. And all for the price of a single Naxos disc!! These are all complete performances. None might be first choices but all are well played and interesting at the very least. PS - there is a similarly priced MP3 download that is £2.00 more, contains most of the same performances BUT NOT ALL!
