The incredible genius of Mahler. Great performance and recording. You cannot get better than this.Takes me back to when I used to be involved.

What a gorgeous recording, Roger - thank you! Out of curiosity, were the mics vertically above the position you mention? Or was your "doughty" boom employed at all? Thanks again for sharing.

Here for the gear

Rolo, I always look forward to your recordings. They always sound excellent, but you have outdone yourself this time, BRAVO !!!
I played oboe with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra for 26 years under Walter Susskind, Michael Geilen, Jesus Lopez-Cobos, and Paavo Jarvi.
Mahler was one of my most favorite things to play.

You have captured a great performance with this recording, beautiful balance and musicianship from the performers and a superb vocal soloist.
This truly is one of the best recordings I have heard. Thank you!

Roger, thanks again for sharing your recordings, complete with explanation. Lovely. Just lovely. Since Sandy doesn't seem to be around, I'll say it for him: chapeau!

Beautiful! Especially commendable that no vocal spot was used on this fantastic soloist. It sounds as though he was positioned dead center in front of the conductor - is that the case?

Sounds on the left on my system. Great soloist, ensemble and recording.

Venue? Ensemble? Soloist?

Here's the hall and performers, the stage has been extended to accommodate them
Pic 2 is the Mahler
It was built for dancing and has a sprung floor
For Music the floor springs are damped, otherwise the hall booms

A small footnote to the Mahler
It was monitored on location with close backed cans and edited and post produced on open backs
Monitor loudspeakers only used for the final quality control session

Looks like the mics are closer to 6' above the stage. At any rate, nice hall, nice performance, nice recording. Reminds me of some other mid century minimalist recordings which are extremely pleasant to listen to. A true to life balance that is needed with Mahler.
