Notes & Reviews:
"...Listeners to the Mahler Fifth DVD and the DG recording of Mahler's Second know how convincing those performances are; can this performance of Mahler's difficult Ninth stand alongside them?... Anyone familiar with Abbado's Mahler will know what to expect by way of interpretation: lyricism, precision, and emotion, but never bathos or the overblown gesture... So to answer the question posed at the beginning of this review: most definitely. Highly recommended." -Fanfare

The sound of this concert, recorded at the (then) new Concert Hall of the Santa Cecilia National Academy, is excellent. I had neither surround-sound nor high-definition TV when I reviewed this performance the first time, so this Blu-ray is something of a revelation. For the infectious enthusiasm of the performers, this is now my Abbado Mahler Ninth of choice.
