 SPLENDID! October 19, 2013 By P. Ledesma (Wellington, KS) See All My Reviews "Impeccably well performed all around! Fischer-Dieskau once again at his consistent best while Barenboim and the orchestra surround that incomparable voice with amazing beauty and the transparent musical detail that these unforgettable Mahler songs require! Combine that with the superior remastering and it can all be summed up in one word - SPLENDID!" Report Abuse
 HE STILL HAS IT! June 7, 2013 By ROBERT E.  FOX (OCALA, FL) See All My Reviews "COMPARED TO 1968 AND EARLIER. THIS WAS RECORDED IN 1989--0R IMPROVED IN SOUND QUALITY AS ACOUSTIC REPRODUCTION ADVANCED. BUT, BUT WHY NO LIBRETTO OR WORDS. IF SONY COULD DO SO WELL IN SOUND, WHY BE CHEAP WITH THE WORDS. HOW EXPENSIVE COULD IT HAVE BEEN? PROBABLY, THE WORDS (FROM POEMS) WERE IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN. FORGET THE CRITICISM. NOTE ESPECIALLY #3 AND #16. THE DRUMMER BOY AND THE GIRL WITH BLUE EYES GETS ME" Report Abuse
