Maintain great intensity, and are richly detailed
It is like a dream to be able to listen Mahler's Symphony 9 conducted Klempeler in such a good fresh sound. It is not bad to live long.
Otto Klemperer knew Mahler and Mahler recommended him for his first conducting position years before the First World War. Klemperer's monumentally dramatic late 1960s EMI recording of Mahler 9 has been reissued several times on CD by EMI, but every version I've heard (and I own them all) sounds harshly two dimensional. Working from an EMI 15 ips tape, HDTT's CD provides a much more realistic, three dimensional experience, offering both warmth and sonic detail. IMHO, HDTT's CD is the best way to hear this fabulous performance!
Even though this recording is decided old, the sound quality is quite good and the artistic interpretation is stunning.
Title: Mahler Symphony No 9

Note for the DSD files: DSD has limited editing capabilities. To keep it pure DSD with no PCM used, We had to allow some blemishes to remain from the original tape source that would be normally edited out in a PCM release.
