Quote from: Mirror Image on November 21, 2021, 07:40:16 PMI've seen you mention this Neumann cycle several times. It certainly makes me think I'm missing something. I own the set, but I don't think I've really given the attention it deserves.

Quote from: Spotted Horses on November 21, 2021, 07:45:00 PMI like it because Neumann eschews histrionics, lets the music speak for itself. Similar, in that way, to the Haitink cycle. And the Czech Philharmonic produces beautiful sonorities. A matter of taste, of course.
Quote from: vers la flamme on November 21, 2021, 07:13:57 AMI really like the Michael Tilson Thomas/LSO on RCA Victor. Just got it recently.
Quote from: hvbias on November 24, 2021, 04:42:58 AMJust curious, do you hear any noise reduction on this box? I was sampling the Kletzki Beethoven reissue box on Supraphon and it does have some noise reduction, the earlier CDs from the 90s sounded better.

Quote from: LKB on July 03, 2022, 06:58:48 AMRattle and the BPO toured with M7 in 2017. Since my greatest concert experience was M7 as realized by Haitink with his RCO in 1984, l was keen to hear what Rattle would make of the piece with his orchestra. I was so bored, l left the hall during the third movement to use the facilities; the usher let me back in after a bit of sweet-talking.The one saving grace was Jonathan Kelly's oboe playing, but for his efforts I'd have counted the evening as a bust.
Quote from: vers la flamme on August 16, 2022, 02:59:52 AMMy favorites for this symphony include: Michael Tilson Thomas/LSO (rather new to me, but so, so good)Abbado/Chicago (I've been told many times that the Berlin is even better; I'll get it eventually, I'm sure)Bernstein/NY (first I ever heard, but it's been a while)Boulez/Cleveland (the only Boulez Mahler recording to which I would apply the Boulez cliches of "clinical" performance, but it's a magnificent realization of the piece)I also have the Klemperer but cannot make heads or tails of it.
