Klaus Tennstedt: The Complete Mahler Recordings (16 CDs)

$ 57.98 $ 63.78

“Tennstedt's Mahler is of the old school; no "Mahler lite" here...His tempi are indeed often slow but by no means necessarily the slowest in comparison with other successful versions and his sense of the music's architecture invariably means that he eschews any tendency to drag...this super-bargain box set is a wonderful testament to the devotion to Mahler of a conductor who came late to the composer but brought to his music the mature fruits of his own mental and bodily suffering. It is not flawless but evinces an integrity and honesty of response, in harmony with a technical proficiency, which secure Tennstedt's place amongst the greatest interpreters of Mahler. ” --MusicWeb International
