Editorial Reviews

Two gargantuan late-Romantic Austrian works are coupled on this very rare recording by Vladimir Ashkenazy and the Deutsches Sinfonie-Orchester Berlin. The recording had limited release in Germany and this is its first international release.

5.0 out of 5 stars a truly pleasant surprise! February 17, 2011
What a nice surprise this is! It won't, however, make you change your mind about the favored Mahler 3 that's already sitting in your collection. But it's still far better than I had a expected. And, as those who are already familiar with this conductor might expect, Ashkenazy directs a tight and cogent performance; a no-frills outing that's a real plus in a a work so sprawling as this one. None of the movement's disappoint. The offstage posthorn solo (trumpet, actually) in the third movement sounds gorgeous and atmospheric. This is now my personal favorite Mahler 3 from a European source. While perhaps a notch less powerful than either the Chailly/Concertgebouw Mahler 3 (Decca), or the Boulez/VPO one (DG), it's also a tinge 'brighter' and more agile on its toes. Iris Vermillion isn't the greatest mezzo soprano ever to have tackled Mahler, but neither is she a drawback. The Berlin based boys chorus is absolutely terrific in the choral "bim, bam" movement (5th movement) - very up front, and very enthusiastic sounding. Given that Decca Eloquence throws in an equally fine performance of Schoenberg's sprawling, 40 minute symphonic essay (more like a novel) on Materlinck's "Pelleas & Melisande", this isn't such a bad deal - even at 'special import' pricing. If you happen to want these two works together, don't balk. If you're coming to Mahler 3 for the first time, you could do a lot worse than starting right here.
