There is much to admire in this performance, much humanity.
Man About London Town
The recording is very clear sounding, and Kubelik further enhances the clarity of the work's considerable contrapuntal detail by employing divided violins.
R. J. Claster
A must-buy for anyone who admires Kubelik, or anyone who seeks great recording of 9th played in brisk tempi yet with dignity and profundity.

I basically second the judgment of the previous reviewer; however I would note that the album cover indicates that the performance is from 1975, not 1967.
Kubelik does a wonderful job of balancing the aching lyrical beauty against the dark dramatic fatalism of the music. He uses rubato in a very masterful, telling way to highlight key phrases, climaxes and transitions. The recording is very clear sounding, and Kubelik further enhances the clarity of the work's considerable contrapuntal detail by employing divided violins.
It is a performance that, while it avoids extremes, lacks nothing in its commitment and intensity. Buy it!

Very fine conducting from Kubelik here in the D minor Ninth..the amazing thing here is the the Pathos!!! The opening is truly sad as we hear the time running out for dear old Gustav...this is not the kind of music we should listen to in the bed before the sleeping hours...there is a haunting almost depraved sadness in this interpreatation...not for the weak of heart!!
I can only compare this to Karajan who is also very fine in this music...the Bavarian woodwinds have always been a plus..the tanginess of the the sound mixed with the sonority of the Bavarian Rundfunks Orckester Brass will always be special to me...there is an element of the macabre in this interpretation that is always an appeal to me here..
Kubelik is a conductor I have also worked under...to me this is a very special recording!! Greatness!!!

This Tokyo Live recording of 9th is one of the best from Audite Mahler / Kubelik live series. As usual, Kubelik's commitment and devotion to the music is eveident, nothing is left to chances nor under-stated.

1st movement is sumptuous and builds up gradually to incandescent climax. Middle movement is exceptionally energetic and boisterous. Last movement is fast, but that does not detract from gravity and poignancy of the music, in fact the most eloquent last movement I've listened to among all 1disc recordings of the work.

Acoustics is very good and spacious with much emphasis on bass. A must-buy for anyone who admires Kubelik, or anyone who seeks great recording of 9th played in brisk tempi yet with dignity and profundity.
