Sir Georg Solti - Mahler: Symphony No.8 (VINYL)

Item #: 527772

Quick Overview

This version of the Eighth Symphony is one of Sir Georg Solti's greatest triumphs on record. The conductor's high-voltage interpretive style was not always ideally suited to Mahler's music -- for example, both of his recordings of the Ninth Symphony seem curiously fidgety -- but there's no question that this is one of the best recordings ever made of Mahler's mighty Eighth. Solti sculpts this sprawling score into a coherent, dramatic shape. Since its first release on LP in 1971, audiophiles have treasured this recording for its sonic potency -- it still has tremendous impact.
