Review By Robert R. Reilly,Catholic News Agency,July 2011

…ICA Classics label has released an historical performance of Mahler’s Third Symphony, conducted by Dmitri Mitropoulos in October 1960, with the Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra. Mitropoulos was a legendary Mahler conductor, and it is good to have this memento, especially since it is in very fine mono sound. Surprisingly, the performance is rather straightforward and would not, by itself, go to the top of my list for performances of the Third. But for Mitropoulos fans, this may be a must. It was after the long first movement in this performance that Mitropoulos suffered a major heart attack. He insisted on continuing the performance, which was his last. He was dead several days later.
