Brilliant Mahler
Review By RH112349,February 2011

There are so many great performances of the Mahler 4th on record, that to be viable, a new disc should surely have something new to say or have a different way to say it?

Herreweghe's orchestra seems lighter and more brilliant sounding than most of what I have heard over the years. You should have one of Bruno Walter's or Otto Klemperer's for authenticity perhaps. If you must have only one, then I would suggest Abbado or maybe Tilson Thomas.

I am crazy enough to have several others but this new one is a welcome addition. Briefly then, the performance is brilliant as is the recording, and the soprano soloist in the last movement is among the very best.
