    This may be the best $10 I've spent. The performance was virtuosic (as you'd expect) and the solo performances were wonderful and full of nuance. This is Mahler's answer to his life-long question of "Is there a heaven? Will I go there? and What is it like?" The 1st movement (about death) is tragic and powerful. The 2nd is solemn and stately. The 3rd movement is joyous and whimsical. The last movement is reverent and transcendental. Abbado pays great attention to the musical minutia. The balance between sections, especially the 1st and 2nd violins, was masterful. The high woodwinds and stings were amazingly in tune. The spell of the final movement was only slightly broken with a cough from the audience. This is a wonderful way to spend an evening.
  • iTunes: Magnificent in so many ways.

    This is a very capable recording of one of Mahler's better works. What compels me to write a review is that of the five tracks on this album, the only one available for individual purchase (due to the length) is the final track titled "Applause". It is titled thus because it is JUST APPLAUSE. I encourage everyone to buy just this track, and play it for themselves at the end of every day in which the Gods have conspired to make life more difficult than it ought be, and yet, you have triumphed. Ninety-nine cents for validation. I think it's worth it.
