A 'Sleeper' Mahler 9, Well Worth Getting to Know
This Mahler 9 with Leopold Ludwig conducting the London Symphony Orchestra was originally recorded on 35 mm film by the legendary Bert Whyte for Everest Records, when Everest was an industry leader known for state-of-the-art sonics. That reputation was destroyed after Whyte sold his company to cut-rate outfits that produced cheap and dreadful sounding Lps from third and fourth generation copies of Whyte's masters. Working from what sounds like a pristine Everest commercial 15 ips tape, HDTT's CD demonstrates just how fabulous those Everest originals sounded. And while Leopold Ludwig's performance is a bit unsettled and raw around the edges, those 'edges' are pretty damn exciting! Not a first choice among Mahler Ninths, but more than just an 'also ran'.
