Notes & Reviews:
Gustav Mahler left his 10th symphony unfinished, and apart from the complete opening Adagio, the remainder was a collection of semi-scored sketches, cryptic notes and loose pages of score that to the observer seemed like an impenetrable puzzle. Deryck Cooke made a performing version of the complete work in the 1950s, using the manuscripts published by Mahler's widow, Alma in 1924. This was a remarkable achievement, allowing the listener into the world of a composer who appeared to be on the brink of a new musical world, and where he comes closest to the Second Viennese School. Since this pioneering edition of the 10th, several other eminent musicians have added their own thoughts to the enigmatic 10th - among them Berthold Goldschmidt and on this CD by the great conductor Rudolf Barshai. This recording was made in the Konzerthaus, Berlin, September 2001.Notes & Reviews:
