MAHLER: Symphony No. 6; Leinsdorf, Boston Sym.
Excellent performance, especially last 2 movements--3rd = best ever. And the copy of the recording is the best.
An Excellent Mahler 6 from Leinsdorf.
I have a lot of recordings of Mahler's 6th Symphony, so I wondered if I really needed another. This transfer had already received a glowing review. I'm a fan of the BSO and I enjoy Erich Leinsdorfs conducting very much. What could go wrong? Very little it would seem. The original recording from RCA must have been exceptionally good as the results here a very fine. These days, if you asked music critics to list a handful of top recorded performances of this symphony, I bet this recording wouldn't rate a mention. Sadly, these days I think Leinsdorf gets overlooked. A pity, because this is a solid, engaging performance, very well played and recorded. Thank you HDDT's for making this available. Plenty of room for a performance of this calibre.
