I liked this very much...

While I share some but not all of joe.vicente's concern about the sound, the performance itself is very listenable. I thought the choruses and particularly the soloists were very good. My Problem with many of the "Great" recordings of the work have been in that particular area....too much vibrato to cleanly hear the pitches. I haven't heard the Boulez and will probably want to do so. But I am not a fan of the recrdings of Kubelik (wose Mahler I adore) Solti (whose Mahler I do not like) and Tenstedt for the above mentioned vocal reasons. I prefer Wit (until I heard his recording I truly didn't like the piece) and the almost ignored Shaw. My bias is clear because I am a choral singer and conductor.

I've heard Gergiev conduct most of the Mahler symphonies at the Barbican and I was greatly impressed by the LSOs performances under Gergiev. I am a huge fan of Gergiev, but this Mahler 8 is one to avoid: it was recorded in the cavernous St Paul's Cathedral, which has a broad accoustic. This recording was one I was really looking forward to, but you will be unable to judge the quality of the performance because the sound is so broken and murdered by echoes. It could have been recorded in the Grand Canyon. Pick up Boulez's recording, which is absolutely fantastic.

Valery Gergiev

By Jayson Greene, Managing Editor

Calling Valery Gergiev "the world's busiest man" has become a classical-music-business cliché, but the force of its truth smacks you afresh when you enter his orbit. Interviewing Gergiev is a bit like awaiting an audience with the Pope, or arranging a meeting with someone living under the Federal Witness Protection Program. His mere passage seems to leave ripples in the air. It is only through a flurry of continual emails and phone calls with his… more »
