Slow but magnificent
It's no secret that Klemperer's performances grew slower as he aged and this is no exception. That said, there are places where the tempi are consistent with other conductors, AND: you will hear details that are completely missing in other performances. I don't think I would want this to be my only performance of this work, but it is a valuable addition to the collection of any Mahler lover.
