Notes and Editorial Reviews

Karajan's classic Sixth confirmed his belated arrival as a major Mahler interpreter. Only Bernstein, in his more emotive, less consciously beautifying way, left recorded performances of comparable strength and conviction. Both saw the first movement as an up-tempo march, but Karajan brought a quite different, Brucknerian breadth and focus to the Andante.

-- Gramophone [12/1998]
