They were still playing with vibrato at that time. I understand the whole section plays Engelbert Schmid triple horns now.

Well said.

I found the last movement on YouTube. So far, I like it. Those Czech horns are so different and beautiful.

How bad can it be, right?   .   .   .  You've got Christa Ludwig throughout, so you're in good hands in that regard. You also get her singing Schumann's pretty, if also slightly 'dull' song cycle. Still, I like Schumann enough that I would listen to that, at least once. This could be a good question for David Hurwitz.

Hey Friends,
    I was curious if anyone had heard this rendition Das Lied von der Erde on Praga, with Vaclav Neumann and the Czech Philharmonic. Another version with different singers is from the early 70s, and doesn't interest me as much, after a quick listen. However, my hope is the sound is better on this one. Your perspectives are appreciated. Thanks!

(I've already requested it through my library's Inter-Library Loan, so I look forward to reporting back.)

Just two more installments to go. I have no doubt that I’ll buy a box set if they make one.

The LAST thing I need is yet another Mahler 9. However, I'd like hearing this one so much on Spotify, that I've decide to vote with my dollars. I'll probably sell off the Harding M9 on Harmonia Mundi (which is also really good). I'm greatly looking forward to an M6 with A. Fischer/Dusseldorf.

Thanks for the clarification. I was low-key hoping it was the M2, but accidentally mis-labeled on the site. But alas.
Someday soon.

I was a bit confused by this listing. So it wasn’t released on CD when it came out in May?

The 29 May 2020 release was download only, 24/48 and 16/44.1 (which is how I have it).

I agree, I want to support this cycle.

Despite some criticisms of the inner movements, I really like this M9. Plus, single disc!

I listened to this at Spotify and liked it well enough to order a CD copy. It's being released November 20 in England. I want to fully support this cycle.
