Mahler: Symphony No. 1 in D major 'Titan' - Solti, Chicago Symphony Orchestra
"The reading and the playing remain as persuasive as ever ... [Solti] has dropped back the pace of the scherzo a notch or two with beguiling effect; the reading is now all one could ask for... the strings are first-rate in the "Wayfarer" music ... the new version has a clear edge in both playing and recording in the symphony's peroration ... the Chicago players give Solti everything he asks for in sonority, power, and rhythmic attack" ... as an interpreter of this symphony Solti has lost little of his old flair and insight."
Gustav Mahler: Symphony No.1 in D
1. Langsam. Schleppend
2. Kräftig bewegt
3. Feierlich und gemessen, ohne zu schleppen
4. Stürmisch bewegt
Sir Georg Solti, Chicago Symphony Orchestra
