My friends and I – all experienced Mahler listeners averaging 50 years each listening to "Gus" as we call him -- were stunned into 10 minutes of flabbergasted silence after listening all the way through this long symphony. I had never heard of Wyn Morris either, but don't be fooled… He was a renowned Mahler and Beethoven conductor in the UK, after winning a Koussevitzky prize here in the US at Tanglewood in 1957. As Bob Witrak's wonderful DSD 128 remaster here will reveal to you, he had a sure hand with Mahler, and a real emotional bond with this music. It's true that Mahler never completed this work, but the Deryck Cooke "completion" is totally convincing. Don't even hesitate on that account! His Mahler 5 in this series on HDTT is also a true winner, as good as you'll ever hear I think. The combination of Mahler, Morris, and HDTT is too good to pass up. I just wish I had the courage to listen to his Mahler 9. I downloaded it a while ago, but after this 10th I need a month or two to recover. My top recommendation.
