Philadelphia Orchestra 1972
Conductor: Carlo Maria Giulini [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Academy Of Music, Philadephia, PA; March 17 or 18, 1972. Excellent (Pre-FM?) WFLN broadcast.

Posted at statework.blogspot: “In the crowded football field full of Mahler 9th recordings that exist in the world, here is a standout, a steal, a touchdown.”

Thanks to jingledale for sharing the tracks at Dime.

jingledale noted:

This is a really nice performance that should be fun to compare with Giulini’s award-winning 1977 CSO recording. I’ve split the radio outro apart from the last track in Audacity and fixed the sector boundary errors with Traders Little Helper.  There are 13 seconds of silence before the radio intro begins which I left as found.

Front cover posted at statework.blogspot - Thanks!

  3. Wow, the pull quote from statework.blogspot is not wrong. Thrillingly jarring performance, in stunning, like-your-standing-on-stage clarity. Mahler as Mahler should be. Thanks so much, bigo.

    I’m hoping lowendbill weighs in with one of his brilliantly evocative scenarios here…

  4. kingpossum, I concur! It grabs you and makes you pay attention to it. A classic-rock your world experience.

  5. By the way, the cover art is wonderful as well. The font used at top is different as well, wish I had it to print with!

  6. Giulini is one of the all-time best! Thanks! What a treat!

  7. @5yrsnojob:

    Yeah I dig the cover art too. The art art nouveau font and impressionist painting make a nice enhancement to the experience. The performance, audio quality and visual appeal here are just mind bending.

    Thanks again bigo.

  11. Thanks BigO. I download many things from your site….and the classics are a good addition. Not long ago you posted Jeff Beck doing Mahler’s 5th which was great. I hope to see some Jeff Beck / Brian Wilson here. Keep them coming.

    “It grabs you and makes you pay attention to it.” Indeed, Mahler has never been background music and this is stunning evidence of that.

    Oh darn! I was hoping to find Mahler Muzak in the next elevator I ride!
