Editorial Reviews


1. Symphony No. 1 in D major ('Titan'): Langsam. Schleppend. Im Anfang sehr gemächlich
2. Symphony No. 1 in D major ('Titan'): Kräftig bewegt, doch nicht zu schnell. Trio. Recht gemächlich
3. Symphony No. 1 in D major ('Titan'): Feierlich und gemessen, ohne zu schleppen
4. Symphony No. 1 in D major ('Titan'): Stürmisch bewegt

A curious situation developed when the all but unknown Jonathan Nott and his Bamberg orchestra happened to release their Mahler First at the same time as world'famous Valery Gergiev and the London Sym. The Gramophone sensed an upset on an epic sccale: We have a David and Goliath situation here: the superstar well and truly thrashed by the underdog...the Gergiev performance suggests that it's been dressed up to sound like Mahler but with little or no sense of who Mahler really is. There is no joy, no pleasure in it.

A great plot line, and I too was disappointed with Gergiev's recording. But the other shoe doesn't drop. Despite vivid SACD sound, this is decidedly second-rate Mahler. However much one may disagree with Gergiev, he and his musicians are on a world scale. We are in the backwoods here. I'd expect half a dozen American orchestras outside the Big five to play better -- much better -- and NOtt seems adrift, conducting form bar to bar without a vision.

You won't be stunned to learn that Nott, 46, is English-born and educated at Cambridge. Leaving outrageous British bias aside, I would love for this CD to be more than a rough draft of a good Mahler First, but it's dreary and limp.

Jonathan Nott and his Bamberg players make of Mahler's 1st a more conventional symphony than usual. That is not necessarily a derogatory comment and the performance itself is by no means conventional. It's just that one is more aware than usual of the symphony's classical form as much as its more radical content. The First Movement, for example, has its slow introduction, its exposition (complete with classical repeat), development, recapitulation and coda. Nott's way with the Wayfarer's 1st subject is relaxed, almost gemutlich and the key marker-posts on the journey leading to the recapitulation make the structure admirably clear. The second movement in Nott's hands is very clearly a classical scherzo/trio ABA format, albeit that the landler main subject harks back to the older minuets, etc. of pre Beethovenian symphonies. Even the slow movement, which is perhaps the most revolutionary in its content with its town band and klezmer interpolations, reveals itself as a classic ABACABA arch form where A is the Bruder Martin/Frere Jacques funeral march, B the town band and raucous klezmer interruptions and C the tragic reinterpretation of the `zwei blauen Augen' song from Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen. And the Finale is clearly another sonata-form movement with its dissonant opening flourishes as direct descendants of Beethoven's Ninth and its yearning 2nd subject on the violins looking forward to the 2nd subject in the first movement of Mahler's next symphony.

Perhaps it is hard from our current perspective of the 120 odd years since this symphony's inception and with all the music that has been written in the interim to really appreciate just how revolutionary it was at the time of its first performance in Berlin in 1896.

I understand that there has been much comment about Nott's efforts with his orchestra regarding his Mahler symphonies.
All I know is that , in general , I like what I hear. While this isn't my favourite version of this symphony ( and neither is his Fifth ) , it is still very good .
My own prefernce is for Solti/LSO , Kubeli/Bayern Rundfunks and Haitink/CSO , but this is still a very listenable alternative .
His versions of the Second , Fourth , Seventh and Ninth are all excellent however, and his Third is one of the best around from anywhere , absolutely outstanding ,in my opinion.
As has been noted in the comments , the standard of orchestras in general is much improved in more recent times , and I believe that this is a great example of that.
I couldn't care less where he is from , or what his orchestra is called ; I just listen to the music.
