Mahler: Symphony no 5 / Scherchen, Vienna State Opera Orchestra

Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 5 in C sharp minor
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Dating from 1952, Scherchen's version with the Vienna State Opera Orchestra offers a powerful, rugged performance with mono sound astonishingly full and vivid for the period. The opening Funeral March has ample power and thrust, and the second movement is fast and furious, while the celebrated Adagietto is tender, sweet and flowing rather than elegiac. The finale brings a ripely joyful conclusion, attractively wild in the coda." -Penguin Guide
