 Barbirolli and Mahler's Fifth June 13, 2012 By Rebecca B. See All My Reviews "I am not a musician, nor a music critic--only a listener and concert attendee. I am moved by all nine of Mahler's symphonies and am continually in awe of what the man was able to do. This version of the 5th was recommended by Norman Lebrecht in his book Why Mahler? How One Man and Ten Symphonies Changed the World. (I recommend this book, a good source for Mahler info.) Not being informed enough to write a cogent musical analysis, I can only say that this CD is a strong, full-bodied and heartfelt rendering of the Fifth. I can only compare it to the performance by the Alabama Symphony (don't be prejudiced; this is a great orchestra, played at Carnegie Hall this past May) in their final concert of this year---and both versions left me stunned."
