 Among the best  June 24, 2014 By David Eaton (New York, NY) See All My Reviews "Curious that this version of Mahler's 3rd doesn't warrant a "recommendation" in the manner of LB's earlier version on SONY with the NY Philharmonic. I believe that it's equally fine and the NYP is amazing---one of the great Mahler orchestras. The DG sound is better--richer and more detailed. This is among the best versions available. (I also give Abbado, Hornstein, Haitink and Gielen high marks.)" Report Abuse
