Complete Mahler Symphonies, Neumann, Czech Phil
« on: March 26, 2010, 04:39:00 PM »
Offering the boxed set of complete Mahler Symphonies, by Vaclav Neumann and the Czech Phil. on Supraphon.  The set is in excellent condition, with only the slightest scuffing of the clamshell box and pristine discs.  Would let it go for $40 (somewhat flexible) and free shipping in North America.  Overseas shipping is also welcome, but there may be additional cost.



Send a PM if interested.

For those that missed this opportunity, the set is still available from MDT for $36.  The sound of the Czech Phil is wonderful in this music.

Czech Phil plays fine, and maybe you can argue that Neumann's lack of interpretation of the music is an interpretation in itself,  but I found it dull in the extreme.  A few of the symphonies come off very well, particularly 2 and parts of 3, but on whole I found it extremely unengaint.  The performance of 5, 6 and 7 were particularly dreary.  His recordings with the Leipzig are much better, IMO.
