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.
