Each orchestral performance of a conductor's symphonic cycle traversal produces predictably uneven performance and recorded results. This is evident throughout the existing current CD catalog, with any conductor, any orchestra, chamber group, pianist, singer, soloist etc. So for example while Sinopoli's Mahler 7th and 4th, may not be to everyone's liking, this 6th is an unusual treasure. It's sonic splendor became even more apparent with a CD player upgrade. So full of orchestral detail, without becoming dizzy with detail at the expense of musical progress, the recording captures splendid detail. Almost unexpected from DG at the time. A vigorous "Tragic" with a superb hammer blow(s) in the last movement and snare drums so well recorded you can practically see the wires under the drum membrane. The Alma's Theme of the first movement's march style music is well done. Steady in tempo and drive with the Philharmonia players in fine form. I don't care if the 2nd movement or 3rd numbering is played however (Scherzo-Andante) or vice-versa. Both movements, and 4th movement (on the 2nd disc) are so well done bridging the Mahler angst with listenable recorded results. Not wanting Mahler to sound like Copland or performed like Schubert, I don't want to be fatigued with Mahler or have it "prettified" and loose it's Mahler agony. I've never payed much attention to the reconstructed 10th, and the work appears on a few of my Mahler discs.
This 6th gets a firm recommendation.
