Distinctions Gramophone Record of the Year
When at last it was revealed what Mahler's final intentions were regarding the ordering of the inner movements of his Sixth Symphony, 90 years of theory, history, and performance practice went right out the window. For theorists, it altered the harmonic structure of Mahler's A minor Symphony. For historians, it modified the meaning of Mahler's "Tragic" Symphony. For players and conductors, it changed the musical progress of Mahler's Sixth Symphony. For listeners, it made Mahler's deepest and darkest symphony even deeper and darker. With the achingly nostalgic Andante moderato now coming before the bitingly bitter Scherzo, the triumph of the opening Allegro energico sounds even more hollow and empty and the collapse of the closing Allegro moderato sounds even more final and total. For most of his career, Claudio Abbado had performed Mahler's Sixth in the then-standard ordering of Scherzo -- Andante and the results were completely convincing. But with this June 2004 recording with the Berlin Philharmonic, Abbado has adopted the Andante -- Scherzo ordering and the results are absolutely compelling. Abbado has always been one of the finest virtuoso conductors of the past half century, but his interpretations have grown more passionate over the years, even to the point of violence, and this Sixth may be the most violently passionate recording he has ever made. Indeed, the unrelenting intensity, unbearable concentration, and overwhelming power in Abbado's interpretation make it one of the most devastating performances of the work ever recorded. The Berlin plays with stunning virtuosity, tremendous dedication, and unconditional love. DG's sound is warm, clear, and real, but just a little bit distant. © TiVo

Booklet
You could say Karajan's Mozart and Haydn were too much like his Beethoven and that his Beethoven was too much like his Wagner. You could say Karajan's Bruckner was too much like his Wagner and his Wagner was too much like his Strauss. But no matter what, you had to say that his Strauss was like nothing else but Strauss. What was Karajan's Strauss like? Check out these recordings with the Berlin Philharmonic and find out. His 1973 Don Juan is vigorous and decadently voluptuous. His 1973 Till Eulenspiegels is witty and incredibly weighty. His 1974 Also sprach Zarathustra is lovely and enormously loud. His 1973 Dance of the Seven Veils is sensually and monstrously sexual. His 1981 Eine Alpensinfonie is so gargantuan that it sounds as if the whole mountain range was recorded live on location. His 1986 Vier letzte Lieder with Anna Tomowa-Sintow is not so much a farewell to life as it is the ecstatic embrace of death. The Berlin Philharmonic plays like the world's greatest Strauss orchestra. The remastered sound is the best Deutsche Grammophon has ever given these recordings. Say what you will about Karajan's Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, or Bruckner, his Strauss is as good as it gets. © TiVo

Distinctions Gramophone Award
« Quite electrifying with superb playing... one can say that this is arguably the best Tod und Verklärung yet committed to disc. Metamorphosen has almost unbearable intensity and great emotional urgency — it is very gripping and involving account. In both works, it would be difficult to improve on these performances by the greatest Richard Strauss conductor of his day » (Gramophone)
