180 Gram Virgin Vinyl! High Quality Pressing!

The search for the extra-musical world in Gustav Mahler's philosophical and programmatic works will doubtlessly continue to occupy future generations of music scholars. Today's music lovers, however, are wholly satisfied with the highly varied interpretations and impressive sound reproduction - which is precisely what Mahler wished for his rugged works. For decades, Mahler's dramatic musical masterpieces were misunderstood and scorned as "Kapellmeister music." Luckily, interest in his works was revived and all nine symphonies were recorded in the 1960's by the recently deceased conductor, Sir George Solti. To this day, his cycle has clearly lost nothing of its aura, its reputation for "never having been surpassed" - how could it otherwise have been so successful for so many years in the light of all the highly competitive, more recent recordings? After success of the new pressing of Mahler's First Symphony), it was high time that the Resurrection Symphony become available on LP once more. And the result is most impressive. One can only hope the the complete Mahler cycle will one day be resurrected in vinyl

"Though never wanting in artistic temperament, [Helen Watts] was a model colleague, always well-prepared and ready to sing a fully invested performance. Her voice, of medium size though firmly focused, had a plushness that often made it seem larger than its actual size. She began by specializing in Handel and Bach, but grew artistically to become an exemplary singer of Mahler and Wagner." - Erik Eriksson, allmusic.com

"Heather Harper, one of the most recorded singers of her time, made an extraordinary transition from a lyric soprano in the English pastoral tradition to a spinto-weight artist of great power and authority. While her earliest appearances and recordings brought to mind such other singers as Isobel Baillie and Jennifer Vyvyan, her prime years showed a voice that had grown in size and roundness while retaining its initial flexibility." - Erik Eriksson, allmusic.com
