    There is no depth to the sound, and in order to justify my paying 10 bucks for this symphony, there should be something exceptional about it. There isn't. Every bit from the beggining to the hammer strokes is boring and doesn't have any depth. The hammer strokes are weak, and I almost have to imagine what they could have been. Instead, try on Solti's for size; every bit of that one is charged with energy and emotion. Truly Solti's is the greatest version of this symphony.

    This symphony is a masterpiece in terms of exploring incredibly depths of emotion ranging from the tragic poignancy of the first movement through the lyricism of the slow andante -- written with his daughter in mind and then the ecstatic finale. Whether you are or are not yet a fan of Mahler, you will love this symphony performed by arguably the greatest orchestra in the world.

    This is one of my personal favorite versions of the 6th. Abbado conducts with great control and depth of feeling. A must buy.

    Mahler's Sixth is a rather a complex and compelling work and it's symphonic structure has enormous scope. In my opinion the first 4 of the Mahler symphonies are the least complex, and rather easy to follow. Symphonies 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 are indeed a turning point in Mahler's symphonic compositions. The 6th is often called the "tragic" because of the various dark motifs that are used throughout the work. The work also has a brighter side to it as well. The first movement if full of both romanticism and tragic events in Mahler's personal life. The 2nd movement is almost Rachmanninov like with utmost lyricism similar to Rach's 2nd piano concerto. The last movement leaves the listener in a state of awe. Abbado's tempo the precision of the Berlin Philharmonic is a great collaboration. This is a must buy! and a good price!
