Editorial Reviews

Mahler's sprawling symphonies remain some of the most ambitious undertakings in the history of classical music (for the composer himself and for future generations of performers and listeners). In the course of these epics, he takes us on a journey of satirical humor and intense suffering, through the world outside us and the deep emotions within us-it's no wonder that it took the classical world some time to catch up with his musical and conceptual inventions. These 15 CDs of acclaimed performances feature the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra on all but Symphony No. 8 , which is performed by the Warsaw Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra. The other nine are conducted by Michael Halasz, Antoni Wit and Robert Olson and feature top choirs from Warsaw and Krakow. Many hours of discovery lie herein!

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent in spots, but you can do better. July 12, 2011
I picked these up individually from a variety of sources and spent less than the cost of the complete set. The symphonies conducted by Wit, especially the 8th, are good quality performances comparable to the ones by "big name" orchestras and conductors. The symphonies conducted by Halasz, not so much. The bottom line: you can have either of Leonard Bernstein's terrific sets for less, although if you choose his later DG set, you might supplement it with the 8th symphony from this collection.
