Mahler Symphony No 6; Rückert Lieder; Kindertotenlieder

  • Symphony No. 6
  • Kindertotenlieder
  • (5) Rückert-Lieder

Karajan’s classic Sixth confirmed his belated arrival as a major Mahler interpreter. Only Bernstein, in his more emotive, less consciously beautifying way, left recorded performances of comparable strength and conviction. Both saw the first movement as an up-tempo march, but Karajan brought a quite different, Brucknerian breadth and focus to the Andante. A pity that DG have already deployed the songs elsewhere as makeweights to Karajan’s analogue Mahler Nine.'
