 bad sonics, great preformance February 9, 2013 By K. BAKER (HEBER CITY, UT) See All My Reviews "This is the greatest performance of classical music since Haydn conducted the premier of "The Creation". The sonic quality sucks (my initial reaction to this CD was that it is the only CD I ever heard where I thought the LP recording was superior, but I haven't done a close study of the two yet. However, odds are you can't find the LP, so enjoy the CD), but if you can get by that, you will experience the greatest performance of any classical work of all time. The first movement of the symphony is a "Funeral March". A music critic who attended the concert wrote something like this in the next morning's newspaper. 'The foggy streets of Amsterdam were deserted last night when Amsterdam's citizens huddled in fear behind covered windows as the shrouded dead marched through the silent city, whose silence was broken only by the sounds of the great Mahler symphony'."
