Mahler - Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Sir Georg Solti – Symphony N. Label: London Records – 411 731-2. Format: CD, Album, Reissue. Symphony No. 1 In D Major. 1. I Langsam, Schleppend - Wie Ein Naturlaut.
With the enormous number of recordings of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 1 in D major, "Titan," competing in the marketplace, it's hard to expect anyone to give this 1983 recording by Georg Solti and the Chicago Symphony more than a passing glance. Yet for early digital recording this disc is terrific, and it still sounds remarkably clear and vibrant when many other recordings of its age sound cold and sterile
Symphony No. 1 in D major by Gustav Mahler was mainly composed between late 1887 and March 1888, though it incorporates music Mahler had composed for previous works. It was composed while Mahler was second conductor at the Leipzig Opera, Germany. Although in his letters Mahler almost always referred to the work as a symphony, the first two performances described it as a symphonic poem or tone poem. The work was premièred at the Vigadó Concert Hall, Budapest, in 1889, but was not well received.
