The BR Klassik thus confirmed. It was previously available only for BRSO subscribers.

I like it a lot and think it's the best of the three Jansons M3rds  - OPO, RCO, and BRSO.

As you know John, I'm not a huge Jansons fan. However, I completely agree with you in terms of his BRSO M3. I have a pirate of it and it's very good. I'll will probably want to get this remastered version too. Thanks for the heads-up. That said, do they really need to wait until November?    .      .    .    Maybe they're planning some sort of memorial concert then.

Barry,

My bet is that they'll probably release a complete Jansons/BRSO Mahler cycle by adding the 4th, 6th, and 8th that were not released previously. And his 3rd would be a part of the box set.

Yes, this M3rd is just great with no weak points throughout.

Let's wait and see.

Judging from how much the sonics of Jansons/BRSO M2nd got improved thanks to their remastering, my fingers are crossed. Ditto Haitink/BRSO M3rd and M9th which are now included in the Haitink Portrait set. They sound miles, miles better than they did before.

This is great news. I’m not big on Jansons’ Mahler either, but he has some random hits like his LSO M6, the BRSO M1, and all three of his M7s. I also like his M9 with the BRSO. Everything else is a dud to my ears.

I thought the RCO M3 was just a bit above average, and if this BRSO one is truly better then I think we are in for a treat.

And the Haitink M3 with the BRSO was very good, if only the first movement wasn’t sooo steadily paced. Reminds me of Boulez’s a bit, but Boulez has a quicker ‘base’ tempo.

Erik,

I am glad you like Jansons/BRSO M9th!! I think the recording is really special. It's not an earthshaking performance but beautifully proportioned, phrased, and played. And it has the BRSO stamp all over it, I mean the fully saturated, smooth, and rich sonority of the orchestra.

I also like his BRSO M5th which I think is superior to his RCO version. In fact, he delivered a phenomenal M5th back in the 90s with PSO and much of the energy, fire, and insights of that concert are carried over to the Munich performance.

I've heard Jansons/BRSO M6th and really liked it too. Energetic, propulsive, very refined with many details.

I'm not sure I would want to get a whole box of Jansons Mahler, especially since I have some of those already in the BRSO's Mahler box with various conductors. I got that box mostly because of my favoritism to the Colin Davis M8. For me to want do that, the M6 and M8 from Jansons would have to be really special. Anyway, this all appears to be in the distant future.
