Simon Rattle has recorded a fine version with the CBSO. In 1980, Rattle conducted the Symphony No. 10 in a highly acclaimed performance with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, and this later version with the Berlin Philharmonic offers even greater expressive control and power. The tempos are slightly slower and, inevitably, the performances more musically eloquent. The excellent live sound omits all but the faintest background noise, and the grave beauty of the Finale becomes a deeply moving testament to a world long-since gone. --Gary S. Dalkin

It is an essential recording and highly recommended for any classical music lovers.
This must be the most 'highly charged' (emotionally as well as purely musical) performance - combined with some of the most disciplined playing - ever recorded.
This may very well be the definitive recording of Cooke's completed version of Mahler's score.
I enjoyed all the recordings that I purchased. The Mona Lisa book is a delight since the Italian renaissance is my favorite historical period.Published 27 days ago by Thomas E. Brennand
