Gustav Mahler and Related Discussions / Re: Kubelík’s DG cycle: remastered?
« Last post by Vehemence on August 13, 2020, 01:05:08 PM »
The 24/96 Pure Audio is the blu-ray disc. That resolution won't fit on a redbook layer. Actually, it's DTS-HD 2.0. I have two of these blu-ray discs, Solit Ring and the Mehta Turondot. Both of these surpass their original releases in sound quality. Having an entire opera on one disc, easily searchable, is amazing. Seeing more discs like this would be nice, but I don't think they've really taken off. Maybe they should try releasing something new on these formats instead of retreading the same ground over and over again.

I interpret the back side as meaning the "Pure Audio" (24/96) and "BluRay" are separate entities. If you read the reviews, there's some argument as to whether the CD's were remastered or not. The majority feel that they ARE remastered. I would guess that to be true.

The other early complete Mahler cycle I like is the Abravanel, particularly for M4 (Davrath!) and M8. And, of course, I like Bernstein's first complete cycle.

One reviewer wrote:

“I have only been listening to the blu-ray disc, but apparently the CDs are not the remastered versions.“

Interesting choice for DG to release it this way.

Apologies if this has already been discussed, but has anyone tried this? Is it a new remastering? I’m intrigued, and just getting into Kubelík’s Mahler.

It's part of a series of posed photographs taken in Amsterdam. There's a famous one with Mahler posed, while Mengelberg, Diepenbrock and others stand behind and to the side of him.

I like this a lot too. As I viewed this photo I looked to the left of me and saw the photo on the box of the Edo de Waart cycle. Strikingly similar! They must have been taken around the same moment.

If you haven't looked at it in a while, you really ought take look at Mahlerfoundation.org. There are many updates and tons of biographical information. Even better, Marina Mahler has had the entire Mahler family photo album scanned and posted here. While many photos will be familiar, there are great many that haven't been previously published someplace. Enjoy.

Gustav Mahler and Related Discussions / G.M. as Groucho Marx.

Because of the dark shadow above his lips, Mahler looks a bit like Groucho in this photo. I like it - I think it's funny.

Thanks, Wade. I always wondered how the Mahler tradition in my home orchestra started. I still need to invest in the Henry Louis de la Grange volumes.

You're welcome.  Get the volumes while you can.  They're not cheap, by any means, especially Volume IV.
