The Bottom Line: Finally, a performance of Mahler’s youthful horror story that realizes every gruesome detail with positively sadistic relish. There are other fine versions in the catalog, Tilson Thomas and Chailly especially, but this live version is the most graphic, exciting, and true to Mahler’s youthful vision. Impactful live sound, great singing, great conducting–this is now the one to get.
