I banished this recording from my collection long ago. The first movement is so stiff it sounds like it is being conducted by a metronome. Most CD sets will isolate the first movement on the first disc to honor the composer's instructions for a pause, and then follow with the remaining movements on disc two. The grouping here of movements 1-2 and 3-4-5 shows inattentiveness from the production team. Avoid.

Maazel's mid-Eighties Mahler cycle was a prestige project, the first time that the august Vienna Phil. had ever recorded all nine symphonies. It's generally acknowledged that they play gloriously and that Sony provided vivid digital sound. As for Maazel, his notions are never less than unusual, so it can be said that his Mahler, for better or (mostly) worse, is like no one else's.

Here in the massive Sym. #2, he starts out with whiplash double basses, recalling the snarling way that Solti opened the piece. Maazel adheres to the Solti style of nerve-racking contrasts and harrowing virtuosity here. The first movement in particular is a frontal assault, and frankly, it works. This is death-haunted music (Mahler originally intended the first movement to be a separate tone poem entitled 'Totenfeier,' or celebration of death), and Maazel takes advantage of his technical gifts by drawing an incredible variety of color and mood from these incomparable musicians.
This movement is one of the highlights of his whole Mahler cycle.

But one is always braced for Maazel's worst habit, which is that he halts the forward momentum of the music to dog-paddle around for a while. His tempo in the second movement minuet dawdles, true to form. The execution and control are sitll on a high level, however. The satiric third movement Scherzo, based on a delightful Wunderhorn song about St. Anthony converting a school of fish with his preaching, seems to have no effect on Maazel, who delivers an uninspired run-through.

One might as well skip to the brief "Urlicht" movement, here drawn out, but all the more reason to luxuriate in the sumptuous voice of Jessye Norman in her prime. The part calls for a mezzo, so Norman functions as that -- not a problem given her range.

Marilyn Horne and Kiri Te Kanawa, how magnificent! This is a great recording. The music is played very well and the orchestra and chorus is excellent. Horne's 4th movement is exquisite. Well done over all!

Mahler's 2nd is a phenominal piece of music. I was able to purchase a replacement for my damaged copy at a very good price on Amazon. Although used, the cd's were in excellent condition. My particular set were recorded by The Boston Symphony, Sejii Ozawa Conducting, with Kiri Te Kanawa, Marilyn Horne, and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus.
