What a great collection of music eOne is bringing us here -- the complete cycle of Gustav Mahler's numbered symphonies, plus a good and sometimes great selection of his songs, including the full "Ruckert-Lieder" and almost all the songs from "Des Knaben Wunderhorn". The introductory price is unbelievable, but even at full price later on this collection is truly worthwhile.

The heart of the set are Mahler's nine numbered symphonies plus the Adagio from the otherwise unfinished 10th symphony. These are classic performances recorded by the Utah Symphony Orchestra in 1963-1974 under Maurice Abravanel, its first professional conductor and the man who made it into a fine regional orchestra in the US. These are some of the most significant "early" recordings of Mahler -- meaning from back before he became so fashionable. These recordings are also available on DVD audio as well as this 10-CD set.

Abravanel actually learned a lot about performing Mahler from Mahler's own protege, Bruno Walter, in the 1930s in Paris -- where both were living after fleeing the Nazis. Like Leonard Bernstein, Abravanel was an early champion and a leader in a Mahler revival in the US that began in the 1950s and early 1960s. Although he recorded a lot with the Utah Symphony during his 35-year tenure there, many view this set of Mahler symphonies as his most significant recording accomplishment.

These Vanguard recordings are wonderfully engineered and sound gorgeous from a technical point of view.

I have always been a fan of the Abravanel performances of Mahler. I had the chance to attend one Abravanel/Utah concerts years ago in a gymnasium at the BYU campus in Hawaii. Those performances included Grofe and Copeland. My all time favorite is the Mahler Symphony No 4 with the star being Netania Davrath in the last movement.

Thank you so much for this collection and it is a tremendous addition to any music lover's collection even if you have other versions of Mahler. Highest regards.

"What you pay is what you get" is not a saying that can be applied to this box set. The arrangements are well done and make a fine addition to anyone's collection. At this price no one should let this opportunity pass them by and I hope my recommendation helps.

Are there greater recorded performances of Mahler's symphonies? There are. I can think of a few off the top of my head. But for the price of this set, I really don't think an in-depth analysis of these performances is warranted or fair. The performances vary from really good to average to not so good (mainly the not so good is the 'Wunderhorn' songs as the quality of the recording leaves a lot to be desired).

For the listener that wants to jump into Mahler's symphonies with both feet, there's not a more economical alternative. This set may have its greatest value as an introduction to Mahler, but after listening to Mahler's symphonies for over thirty years, I can honestly say that there are some performances in this set that are among my favorite Mahler recordings.

Five-stars overall, with no nit-picking!

While the tracks included are far from the best Mahler recordings available, they filled a gap in my library previously missing several of the pieces included in the set. Having the major works together in a single set is convenient, and it makes programming an all Mahler evening (plus) easy. At the very cheap price, it is a set worth acquiring.

This was an incredible deal, like the prior Big Bach Box and others from Vanguard Records that preceded it.

The complete Mahler Symphonies conducted by Maurice Abravanel will probably be the main attraction for most,
and it's a set that doesn't have to be regarded as second-rate, as some did who were imprinted on Bernstein
when it first was issued; but the Mahler song cycles are a real gem that has been long neglected.

Was I shocked when I played the First symphony in the numerical order of movement listed only to find that the fourth movement was listed first etc. Since the listing did not indicate the proper order of movements it was annoying. Since I am familiar with this symphony I could make adjustment but I am not that familiar with the rest of Mahler's work I am not sure how to proceed

I purchased this at the ridiculous price of 99 cents. I see its now up to 9.99 but its still a great buy. i was only familiar with the Abravanel Mahler 4th prior to this purchase, but that was a good performance so took the chance--i guess spending 99 cents isn't really "taking a chance" . The sound is decent--1960s analog--the miking is close on some of the performances but i got used to it. I was more impressed with the performances than i expected. I guess i would term it "meat and potatoes" Mahler,and some of it rises above that. I enjoyed the performance of the 7th which i found idiomatic, and the 8th is fine as well. For someone looking for a Mahler introduction, this is an outstanding buy.
